Local Attractions

Whale Watching

30 minutes away
The months from November through March mark whale-watching season in Riviera Nayarit. Experience the spectacular scene of humpback whales swimming along the coast as they arrive in the warm waters for mating season. You can witness the playful whales from the beach, however if you want to get a closer look, whale-watching charters leave the docks of Punta Mita daily. Undoubtedly, one of the major attractions of the season are the whales that migrate to our shores from their feeding grounds along the northern coast of California, creating one of the most spectacular shows nature offers. Watching a 40-ton creature leap almost completely out of the water is an experience that cannot be forgotten. In spite of their tremendous size, these magnificent mammals are sensitive to sudden changes in their environment, which is why it's essential to protect them. In Mexico, laws regulate how whale-watching tours are conducted, since an improper encounter can harm these fascinating creatures.

The Huichol Indians, native to the State of Nayarit which borders closely with Vallarta, produce stunningly colorful pictures made from naturally colored Indian yarns and dramatic beaded painted masks that are loaded with native ritual symbolism. Excellent shops are scattered throughout. Some are near the beach, some in major hotels and many are located on the main downtown shopping area along Juárez and Morelos Streets.
