The Riviera Nayarit is Mexico’s newest beach destination made up of 200–miles of pristine coastline. Although Conrad Punta de Mita is impressively secluded, it lies just 45 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta Airport, making it easily accessible for an extended weekend getaway. Here, along the coast, Mexico lies undiscovered. The surrounding village of Sayulita exudes a vibrant charm that offers an opportunity for local immersion and exploration.
Once at the resort, homages to traditional Mexican culture can be found everywhere. Dine at CODEX or Arbol for bold dishes crafted with the freshest of ingredients, like Nayarit’s Ceviche, or Corn Gordita. The cultural influences go on to touch each experience on the property as well.
The West coast of Mexico is not only home to picturesque beaches and dense rainforests, the local villages are recognized by UNESCO as part of “humanity’s heritage.” The rich history and culture that can be found in these towns offer opportunities for immersion and education. The town of Sayulita, Nayarit feels as though one has time– traveled back to the sixties, where colorful art, a slow way of life, and a renowned surf scene can be found. Conrad Punta de Mita offers custom excursions to the towns of Sayulita, San Pancho, and Punta de Mita, where their local experts have scouted special gems like artisan markets and taco stands to grab a quick bite. When you’re done exploring, relax and enjoy the local lifestyle at one of the many colorful eateries you can find!
