The long strip of beautiful golden beaches is a trending destination spot for Mexicans. Bahía Banderas has luxury hotels with infinity pools that overlook the ocean and spas that mix modern treatments with ancient knowledge from indigenous communities.
The town also has restaurants, exclusive spas, and golf courses. The Grand Velas Spa, for example, offers a massage with obsidian stones and chocolate body and face masks.
Vacationers also come for the calm sea — it has turned this place into an idyllic sailing destination. Most recently, the two marinas have grown in importance and are now home to almost 500 boats. Golf is also attracting visitors to the courts in the area, such as El Tigre golf court, considered one of the most challenging ones in the country.
Nuevo Vallarta, as part of the Riviera Nayarit, has several nature protection programs, such as the El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary, where visitors can get a guided tour and learn about the crocodiles that make this place home. Some tours even include feeding the crocodiles — but only for the brave!
