Uncover the Treasure of Los Ayala
It might be easy to pass by the charming beach town of Los Ayala while driving through the Riviera Nayarit, but it would be a sad oversight to miss it. This tiny beach town is the happy home to about 500 friendly, smiling residents who know they live in a tropical paradise virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Located 5 to 10 minutes from Rincon de Guayabitos and La Penita de Jaltemba in Bahia Jaltemba Bay, Los Ayala is just waiting to say, “Bienvenido” (welcome)!
A whole handful of things make Los Ayala special, but one in particular is a strong sense of community. For such a small town, it depends on the mutual collaboration of its residents, which results in a warmth and familiarity that are rare in this day and age. These resourceful locals are ready to lend a hand with a smile and follow the strong leadership of their community-focused mayor who encourages fundraising events that support the town and cultural activities that support their heritage.
Los Ayala is a strong-hearted town built on strong-hearted people. Even the town’s legend mirrors this. It has been said that the town was named after the “Ayala” pirate brothers, who hid in this area during the 19th century after burying stolen treasure in a cave deep within the jungle near a secluded beach. They say the treasure has never been found, but after visiting this town, a person may wonder if the treasure isn’t Los Ayala itself.
This town is a tropical treasure in its own right adorned by exquisite natural surroundings: lush tropical rainforests in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains, tropical fruit orchards, clear aqua-colored ocean water, soft golden sand beaches, tall palm trees, and a variety of exotic birds and other wildlife. Captivating hiking trails plus beautiful snorkeling and swimming beaches make for the perfect combination of wonderful sightseeing and indulgent relaxation.
