Essentials of Our Destination: Day Trips
To the north, south and east of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are some magical places that, due to their proximity, are ideal for a short getaway. Just drive a few miles to find dreamy landscapes that include various types of microclimates, courtesy of the imposing Sierra Madre Occidental.
Start the journey at dawn, lower the car windows and watch the sun begin to light the way. After a few minutes, enjoy the slight change in climate that is beginning to be experienced by the vegetation that provides a unique charm to the rustic villages that still retain the typical flavor of Old Mexico with their cobblestone streets, traditional cuisine, distinctive facades with highland architecture and the friendliness of their residents.
Without a doubt, these nearby towns with mountainous landscapes and a cool climate are most visited from Vallarta · Nayarit:
- El Tuito
- San Sebastián del Oeste
- Talpa de Allende
On the other hand, there are also small coastal towns that offer other types of sand, waves and marine species, where their tropical atmosphere is more bohemian:
- Lo de Marcos
Spending the day in one of these small towns means enjoying their natural, historical, cultural and gastronomic delights, which contribute to enriching what Vallarta · Nayarit has to offer.
