Paradise Preserved

Nuevo Vallarta is quickly becoming one of the most alluring destinations in Mexico. While the area is lined with luxury accommodation options and world-class dining opportunities, there is a backcountry that has remained preserved amidst regional developments. Lush vegetation, untouched beaches, and the sustained culture of the Huichol Indians qualifies Nuevo Vallarta as more than just a trendy vacation destination. Visit the ruins of the Fort San Basilio, explore La Tavora Springs, and catch some waves off of Matanchen Bay. Not to say that we don’t want you to laze your vacation away, but it’d be a shame if you didn’t get out and meet the locals.
