Winter holidays in Riviera Nayarit

It is time to dust off the Christmas decorations, begin wrapping the gifts, and prepare for a special dinner to be shared on a chilly evening among the company of loved ones. Christmas holidays are some of the most anticipated year after year, but how about trying something new this time around? How about a tropical winter overlooking the boundless sea? Riviera Nayarit is the perfect destination to escape on this holiday season. Check out the itinerary we have put together for you and your family.

A Christmas Dinner is essential

By far one of the most delicious feasts that we look forward to. Nothing beats the indulgence of savoring a delicious Mexican Christmas dinner. We recommend Frida, a restaurant awarded with Four Diamonds by the American Automobile Association (AAA) located in Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Its menu honors the flavors of Mexico that make you feel right at home; the perfect blend on Christmas Eve.

Bask in the warm sunshine

The warm tropical paradise of the Pacific gives a whole new meaning to a Winter holiday. Spend your afternoons by the pool or on the beach and bask in the warmth of the sun. The ideal place to relax and enjoy with the family is Rincon de Guayabitos, which has a beach access that extends well over a mile. Here you will find various activities for all ages, but what you should not miss are El Coral and El Cangrejo Islands. Its natural landscapes and distinct wildlife are the perfect dose of nature’s spectacles your trip deserves.

Immerse yourself in traditions

Cultural festivals, workshops, or exhibitions will expose you to the region’s traditions as well as allow you to take a little piece of Riviera Nayarit with you. Cultural Capital in San Pancho has prepared various activities from December 16th to 20th 2019, ideal for the entire family. Among them are gastronomic presentations, fashion shows, and art exhibitions.

On the other hand, there are plenty of other events that take place on the Malecon of Puerto Vallarta, where the magic of Christmas comes to life in front of the sea. The lighting of the tree, pilgrimages to honor the Virgin Mary, and also on December 12th, the founding of Puerto Vallarta is celebrated with a party at the City Hall. You’ll find the streets flooded with color, music, dances, and even fireworks.
