Marc Murphy, Managing Director of Riviera Nayarit’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, invited folks to take advantage of the beautiful natural settings of the destination to exercise outdoors: “We’d like to extend an invitation to locals and visitors alike to step outside and take a walk, run, do some yoga, stand-up paddle, surf or hop on a bike: the idea is for families to be as active as possible and share it on our social media outlets,” he said.

Global Wellness Day is a special commemoration celebrated internationally on the second Saturday of June. It was established in 2012 under the slogan “One day can change your whole life” and since then, dozens of countries all over the world have joined millions of people promoting physical, mental and emotional health.
