The 7th Riviera Nayarit Open Water “Nado Seguro” 5-3K Tournament, an open water swimming event, will be held this April 1 at the Riviera Nayarit Marina in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.
The current edition of this swimming tournament will be more special than ever, as the competition has been included as part of the Global Swim Series, an organization that has a global network of competitions in 26 countries, with more than 38,000 affiliated swimmers holding 80 competitions during the year. The announcement will certainly help this Riviera Nayarit swimming event to be recognized outside the Mexican borders, bringing even more participants.
The event organizer Belin Villasante stated that this achievement has been mainly thanks to the international recognition of the Riviera Nayarit, as well as the tournament’s great connectivity and infrastructure, the increase in participants and other distinctions that have made this sporting event one of Mexico’s most important swimming competitions.
