Supplier: Riviera Nayarit
The Riviera Nayarit has entertainment options for everyone. Visitors to the area will find a safe paradise for rest, relaxation, and fun, where they can take it easy and enjoy nature.
What sets this destination apart from all the others is the number and quality of events it hosts throughout the year. Sporting, culinary, musical, and eco-events are just part of the variety of activities that visitors can enjoy in Mexico’s Pacific Treasure and its 23 coastal villages.
Below is a selection of the top events for July 2019:
13th Bahía de Banderas Marlin and Tuna Tournament
• July 18-20, 2019
Organized by the Bahía de Banderas Fishing Club, this traditional sport fishing event returns to the waters offshore the Riviera Nayarit. Nuevo Vallarta’s Vallarta Yacht Club will host this tournament, which attracts the best fishermen in Mexico and abroad.
Experts consider Mexico’s Pacific Treasure as one of the top destinations for sport fishing. There is a fantastic diversity of marine species along its 300-kilometer (186-mile) coastline that guarantees excellent catches any time of the year. For more information, visit fishingnayarit.com.
VII Sea Turtle Festival

It’s turtle nesting and hatchling liberating season on Playa Platanitos—a coastal village in the Riviera Nayarit located in the municipality of Compostela—which means everyone is preparing for the VII Sea Turtle Festival.
The goal for the event is to promote environmental awareness and the conservation of the sea turtle, besides boosting tourism in a community with less than 100 inhabitants who live mostly from commerce, fishing, and sustainable tourism. For more information, visit facebook.com.
