Riviera Nayarit – The Beauty of Nature
One of Mexico’s largest bays, Banderas Bay (Bahia de Banders), stretches across both regions and is home to exotic sea life and endangered species, making it a prime ecotourism destination and must-visit spot. Perfect sandy beaches, almost empty of tourists make for an ideal place to rest and recoup; the ideal holiday requirement.
But an abundance of wildlife is available to spot within the luscious, natural surroundings, a dream for animal-lovers who will rejoice at the sight of indigenous turtles and one of the largest, colourful bird populations in the world.
From interacting with spinner dolphins to whale-watching (the bay is the birthplace of the Humpback Whale) as well as the signature Olive Ridley marine turtles who can be spotted by the dozen, there’s plenty of fascinating sights to be discovered.
