Tepic is the capital of the State of Nayarit. Located in the central part of the State, more than 70% of its territory is mountains and the rest is plains and hills. Because of this, its green landscapes and abundant palm trees make it a refreshing colonial city, additionally characterized by its friendly and very courteous population.
La Tovara National Park is one of the most important natural wonders of the state of Nayarit and the whole of Mexico. It is an incredible spring where you can venture between mangroves and have full contact with nature. Due to its particular location, the fresh spring water from the mountains, meets the saltwater from the ocean at La Tovara, forming this incredible estuary, home to thousands of species of birds, reptiles, and fish.
Thanks to the immense natural wealth that exists in La Tovara, it is part of “The List of Wetlands of International Importance”, declared at the RAMSAR Convention since 2008.
San Blas On the Mexican Pacific coast in the state of Nayarit, with 40 km of gently sloping pristine beaches, between the mouths of streams and mountains that spill into the sea, you will reach the Port of San Blas, a typical fishing village rooted in the charm of simplicity, with friendly and hospitable people.
Nestled in the heart of the wetlands, San Blas is known for being one of the most important spots in the Western Hemisphere for the observation of native and migratory birds, with over 500 different species, many of which are endemic.
Matanchen Bay & Pier The boardwalk and pier at Matanchén Bay have become one of the most important tourist spots in the state.
Just 20 minutes from Tepic, there is a place where you can take long walks on the beach to enjoy beautiful sunsets and the best of local cuisine, such as the exquisite zarandeado fish, devil shrimps, or garlic shrimp. Similarly, we recommend trying the traditional banana bread, coconut bread, cocadas or any of the delicacies prepared according to the typical recipes of coastal Nayarit communities.
Here the ocean has a pleasant temperature and almost no slope, which makes it very agreeable to take a saltwater bath in Matanchen Bay.
Santa María del Oro Lagoon. It is a lagoon almost 2.25 kilometers long by 1.2 wide, located inside a volcanic crater that was formed by the fall of meteorite thousands of years ago.
the locals tell a story in which they mention that the bottom of the lagoon has not been found, to which scholars explain that the impact of the meteorite penetrated deep layers of earth. However, a study found that its depth is 60 meters.
It has a beautiful landscape with pine and oak forests, surrounded by hills
El Ceboruco Volcano is located 2,260 meters above sea level, from its summit you can see the beautiful landscape that extends around it, as well as some of the nearby towns.
The land around it is formed by remains of lava and reddish rocks, products of its last eruption in 1870.
At present, the volcano and its surroundings are protected as a Geological Park which covers an area of 1,500 hectares.
Lo Toriles. Its name arises because in this archaeological zone there is a circular temple dedicated to the god Ehécatl-Quetzalcoátl, a shape that resembles a bullring also known as a Toril.
Los Toriles de Ixtlán del Río spread over a territory of more than 80 hectares; It was a city in constant growth and its inhabitants attached enormous importance to its buildings, which, over time, they expanded or modified.
It was an important indigenous settlement that, at first, was possibly inhabited since 300 BC. and until 600 AD In this first phase, a cultural complex was developed known as the tradition of the Tombs of Tire in which offerings were deposited inside burial chambers.
