Wibit Mex Aquatic Park Opens in The Riviera Nayarit
Wibit, the latest trend in adventure aquatic parks, has arrived in the Riviera Nayarit, specifically to the beach in Bucerías. This new attraction consists of the installation of a series of inflatables in different shapes that together make up a fun circuit that gets the adrenaline pumping. Bouncy houses, slides, rope towers, bridges, domes, curves, walkways, half tubes and much, much more are part of the fun. Children aged four and up are allowed in the park as long as they know how to swim and they must wear floating equipment or life jackets. To complement Wibit’s own safety conditions and trained personnel, the area where the park was installed also coincides with a lifeguard tower manned by the Department of Public Safety. The price is $350 pesos per hour, per person, or $700 pesos for the full day. Groups of over 10 people receive a 20% discount. There are other discounts for residents of Bucerías and Nuevo Vallarta who have a photo ID. The park is open from 10 am to 7 pm.
