I don’t know about you but this time of year when the days are shorter, darker, colder and sweaters, scarves and boots are the norm vacation destinations are what I daydream and dream about. Since I am a beach girl through and through I gravitate towards vacation destinations like Mexico’s Vallarta-Nayarit. With nearly 200 miles of coastline, authentic charm and a rich vibrant culture it’s no wonder Riviera Nayarit was named one of Frommers’ top destinations for 2014. It’s a destination for pampering, stunning sunsets and incredible value that I can’t wait to experience firsthand with my family. There is literally something for every age to experience making it an optimal family friendly vacation destination that you can book for as little at $50 down!
If you’re not familiar with these two locations, Vallarta-Nayarit are two neighboring cities that offer the perfect blend of old world charm and traditional experiences.Along Vallarta-Nayarit’s coastline you’ll find upscale resorts, authentic Mexican charm, colonial history, fine dining (second only to Mexico City), islands hiding secret spectacular beaches, warm Pacific waters teeming with fish, turtles, dolphins and migrating humpback whales…the list goes on and on. Did I mention that the best time to go is NOW (November-May) when you can catch 1000’s of humpback whales that are migrating. That’s always been on my bucket list.
Something else on my list of “to see” would be Los Arcos National Marine Park (pictured above). It’s a cluster of unique rock formations that the surf has carved into arching caves and grottoes. You’ll want to grab some snorkel gear for this adventure! It’s calm waters are brimming with angelfish, damsels, parrot fish, lobsters, sea turtles, ells, puffer fish and even mantas and stingrays.
All that AND 300 days of sunshine per year and an average temperature of 86 degrees! Are you ready to go? Want to save some money? Of course you do and we just so happen to have a special deal to share. I don’t know about you but I’m always up for a little SAVINGS.
