VALLARTA-NAYARIT’S FUN IN THE SUN, MARGARITA IN HAND
One of Mexico’s most enticing double destinations is that of Vallarta-Nayarit , a coastal area covered by lush palm-covered mountains. The sparkling blue Bahia de Banderas and Vallarta attract millions that flock each year to laze on the glaring sandy beaches, grub in the stylish restaurants, stroll by the zany shops, and wander the picturesque downtown streets and enticing promenade. There are activities aplenty for all and these include boat trips, horseback rides, diving trips, golf, and much more.

Puerto Vallarta's unrelenting growth has moved northward into neighboring Nayarit . With 185 miles of coastline, the Riviera Nayarit offers dazzling geography, biodiversity and entertainment; this spectacular diversity is due to the clashing of jungle and tundra habitats
 (See pp. 4-9)

Small coveted surf spots dot the coastline, including the beginners break. Next door, chic Punta de Mita sets the gold standard for fine accommodations and fun activities. Stately vistas, world-class golf courses, a thriving sailing community, and electrifying adventure sports round out this gentle and rich slice of Mexico. Come and enjoy some fun in the sun, margarita in hand.

DR. TRAVEL'S - TRAVEL TIP:
FINDING GOOD EATS
Sometimes eating on the road means dining in unfamiliar surroundings, at odd hours, on overcooked food, and with limited choices. For this reason I take breakfast bars, granola bars, dried fruit, and other easy to pack foods that don’t require refrigeration. I hope the road food tips in this section help you improve those less-than-ideal meals and expand your choices.  
The Customer’s Always Right
 
Ximena did a good job preparing our trip. The on-site staff did a good job in managing our program. Communication was perfect and we were kept abreast of all aspects in the program.
