Why is everyone flocking to Nayarit?

Riviera Nayarit

Are you thinking about a home in the sun for your active family? The state of Nayarit on the west coast of Mexico occupies the north part of the Bay of Banderas and carries on up the coastline. It’s a 200 mile stretch of soft sandy beaches, picturesque coves, ocean breezes and turquoise waters. Just north of the Puerto Vallarta International airport, the destination is just a two-hour flight from Los Angeles. There are many direct flights arriving daily.


Most of all, it’s a place where everything’s a little different so landing here feels as though you’ve crossed over to another world. It’s a special place where life is simpler and a little less stressful. From the beaches to the pueblos to life on and in the water, it all fills you with a calmness and a new awareness. It’s a very family-centric culture and there is a warmth and welcome that is very unique. We feel privileged to live here and love sharing it with others.

Today we stopped and chatted with a resident coming up from the beach with his paddleboard. We asked him what he loves best about living here. His answer: “incredible location close to a cosmopolitan city and several charming towns, the beautiful Bay at my doorstep, all the species of birds in the trees, and the quiet at night. My girlfriend and I are super active because there is just so much we can do here year round.”

Nayarit features a host of luxury resorts and stunning postcard-perfect landscapes. It is being developed in a way that protects the natural ecosystems of the area.

A new 4 lane highway from La Cruz to Punta Mita has just opened. This considerably shortens the distance between the two centres while also providing some great cycling paths.


However, the infrastructure project that’s believed will have the most impact is the new highway from Guadalajara to Nayarit. Scheduled to open in 2017, the new route will shave 2 hours off the current 4.5 hour drive.

Think We’re Biased?

In 2014, Bill Gates purchased The Four Seasons Hotel and Resort in Punta Mita. Michael Larson, chief investment officer for Bill Gates said in a statement: “We are a significant investor in Mexico and hold a long-term positive view on the country and its economy. This is an outstanding property asset.”

Last month, Nayarit State government officials held a ceremony to mark the start of construction of the $870 million One & Only Mandarina resort on Nayarit’s south coast. Scheduled to open 2018, Mandarina will include a second 125-room hotel, villas and haciendas. The Kerzner Group says Nayarit is one of Mexico’s “exceptional regions.” Ricardo Santa Cruz says “Nayarit’s impressive natural resources allow it to create a world-class project that remains low density and eco-tourism focused.”

Nayarit will also be home to one of Mexico’s largest luxury developments, the $1.8 billion (USD) master-planned Costa Canuva.

Costa Canuva will feature five luxury hotels, 3,200 rooms, mountain biking trails, a PGA-caliber golf course. It will also have a beach club and specialty restaurants, Willow Stream Spa, six restaurants and bars, a marina, and more than 12 miles of cycling tracks designed by the International Mountain Bicycling Association.

“We are delighted to be at the forefront of establishing the new Costa Canuva community in this thriving and beautiful region,” said Kevin Frid, president, Americas for Fairmont.”We are positioning Fairmont to deliver our unique brand of luxury and genuine hospitality at Mexico’s most sought-after destinations.”
