Pacific Coast


About the Pacific Coast of Mexico

The longest expanse of beaches in Mexico lies across the Pacific Coast and Gulf of California, a region known as the Mexican Riviera, and encompasses 7,338 kilometers (4,560 miles) of coastline.  A 322-kilometer (200-mile) expanse of this coastline consists of relatively undeveloped beaches in south Nayarit – a region known as the Riviera Nayarit – and is one of the country’s smallest states.

Starting as far south as Nuevo Vallarta and extending as far north as San Blas, the Riviera Nayarit coast borders hundreds of bays in the Pacific Ocean, although a few are larger and more significant, such as Bahia Banderas Bay, Bahia Jaltemba Bay, and Bahia Matanchen Bay. Scattered along these bays and other secluded coves are more than 20 unique towns, framed by lush tropical rainforests and the majestic Sierra Madre Occidental mountains.

The towns along the Nayarit coastline each have their own distinct character, but all of them have the awe-inspring Pacific Ocean in common.  Most have the customary, palm tree-lined, golden sand beaches (although some have white sand beaches like a few near Sayulita and Punta de Mita); and range from the vibrant waves of the deep blue sea to the calm waters of the clear aqua sea; and are bordered by rocky jungle cliffs curving around the outer edges of beach coves as if embracing them.

Located south of the Tropic of Cancer, the Pacific Coast of Nayarit has a true tropical climate with hot and humid temperatures most of the year, but are more intense during the late spring, summer, and early fall months.  Although Mexico lies along the hurricane belt, if Pacific hurricanes occur between June and November, they are much less severe than in southeast Mexico which when combined with the other attributes, make the Riviera Nayarit an ideal place for a beach vacation or for investing in a second or vacation home.

Escape to a tropical paradise on the Pacific Coast of the Riviera Nayarit for your next Mexico vacation.
