The Nado Seguro (safe swimming) Sixth Annual Open Water Swimming Competition will take place this Saturday, April 23, starting at 7:30 am at the Marina Riviera Nayarit at La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. The event has received enough participant application to reach its maximum number of competitors that can participate in the competition: 700.

The competition features 18 categories, including children, teens, masters, special needs and professional, for men and women. Its goal is to promote swimming at all levels, with comfortable challenges for 7 year-olds and up to swim 500 meters, and increasing distances to 1.25K and 2.5 K as they reach 14.

3K is the most popular category, with competitors ranging 15 – 70 years of age, including special needs competitors. The pro category is 5K with male and female divisions, regardless of age.

Organizer Belín Villasante is pleased with the way the event has established itself as a must-attend for swimmers around the country. “This year we will feature competitors from all over the country, along with the usually large contingency from Nayarit, Jalisco, Mexico City and Guanajuato.”

To make the event possible, Nado Seguro partners with local authorities to ensure that the event is safe for participants and spectators. For more information about the event, please visit aguasabiertasnadoseguro.com.

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”
