On my recent Staying Adventurous podcast I attempted to discover an answer to the top travel question, “What is your favorite travel destination?” In my many responses and destinations, I personally mentioned surfing in Sayulita. I loved it there and in the Riviera Nayairt. And now in the 4th episode of the Mexico Travel Journal […]
Episode 2 of my Mexico Travel Journal takes us just outside of Puerto Vallarta and into the Mexican state of Nayarit to some of the first stops along the Riviera Nayarit Pacific coast. Watch and learn about the beach towns of Nuevo Vallarta and Bucerias. Explore the markets including fish market in La Cruz de […]

This fish dish is available along the coast of Nayarit and also on menus in southern Sinaloa, […]
The seaside town of Sayulita has been on my “must visit” list in Mexico for years. The surfer-yoga enclave intrigued me from the very first day I heard about it, a day well before I ever I fell in love with Mexico. An hour north of Puerto Vallarta along the pacific coast’s the small beach […]
San Francisco, Nayarit, Mexico. Yes San Francisco is a place worth visiting in Mexico too and the quaint beach village on Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit left an impression on me.
