go to original
October 5, 2018

Sports, gastronomy, and fun in the sun and on the beach - what more could you ask for? Come to Mexico's Pacific Treasure, the Riviera Nayarit, and experience a great start to the fall season!

Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico - We're in the tenth month of the year and with it come endless opportunities to enjoy the many events happening in the Riviera Nayarit in the upcoming weeks. These activities are all part of the year-round actions taken by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) to attract more visitors to the destination.

Marc Murphy, director of the CVB and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB), mentioned these entities are constantly working on capitalizing the interest Mexico Pacific's Treasure generates among event organizers. One of the offices' commitments is to increase occupancy rates not only during high season, but also during the less busy months of the year.

We want you to enjoy your visit to the max - here are a few of this month's activities:

San Pancho Pee Wee Surfing League (October 13–14)
San Pancho is ready to welcome the 2018 Pee Wee Surfing League from September 8-9, the fourth stop on the children's circuit that began last June.
