You must see Puerto Vallarta at least once

Riviera Nayarit tours? Not far from the white-sand beaches of northern Nayarit is a refuge for crocodiles, water walking lizards, jaguars, and a slew of migratory birds. A boat tour through the National Marshes (also known as the San Blas mangroves or Marismas Nacionales) will give you an up-close view of this region’s vast network of lagoons and, if you’re lucky, the elusive wildlife that inhabit them. These marshes—occupying 2,000 square kilometers—is a haven for reptiles. Its combination of fresh water and salt water supports more than 300 species of birds, according to the North American Bird Conservation Initiative. The area welcomes 200,000-some shorebirds per year.

More Mexico destinations: Another interesting Mayan site that is easily accessible from Cancun’s main resort area – this one located at the north end of the main beaches – is the El Meco Archaeological Site. Originally inhabited around AD 300, it rose to prominence as a Mayan trade center from the 1100s until its decline after the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. Of particular interest is the 12.5-meter-tall El Castillo, the only pyramid of its kind to have been built in the area. Perched atop the pyramid are the remains of an old temple from which you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over the coastline and Isla Mujeres.

Climb aboard for a thrilling speedboat ride over the brilliant waters of Banderas Bay, where a brand new view of the fantastic lush coastline will reveal itself to you. As exciting as this ride is, it culminates in a relaxing visit to the fishing village of Quimixto. Home to just 400 people, Quimixto is nestled by the La Puerta river mouth and is accessible only by a boat ride into the village. The lack of cars means life unfolds at a slower pace here, and you’ll have the opportunity to shop, look around, take photos and simply unwind before you continue your day of exploration. The relaxation continues as you mosey back to the seashore for an amazing snorkeling session in a secluded cove full of rock reefs and teeming with colorful sea life.

Extra Mexico places to visit: Love sea turtles? So do we, and that’s why we always stop by the Turtle Farm in Isla Mujeres. Since large sea turtles have made Isla Mujeres their breeding ground for generations, the Turtle Farm gathers up the eggs it finds along the beaches and incubates them at the Turtle Farm thereby greatly increasing their chances of survival. Depending on the time of year you’re there, you can see hundreds of turtles in the tanks growing up in the large tanks around the property. There is a great celebration the day they’re released back into the wild.
