Imagine that you found a hidden treasure somewhere in the world? What would you do? Would you keep the treasure all to yourself, or is this treasure simply so amazing that your heart tells you to share it with the world? That is what happens to many people who discover Lo de Marcos and Riviera Nayarit. For many years, this part of the world was a secret, and many people viewed it as something so precious, they would opt to keep it to themselves, leaving many in the dark that such a magical part of the world even existed. However, this trend is changing and many have opted to be selfless and share this gem with everyone. After all, beauty can only be admired if there is someone there to admire it
Lo de Marcos is unlike any place. It is a paradisiac, little town with all the charm and sparks that you would expect from a traditional, Mexican town, but with all the added modern comforts people appreciate while on holiday. Imagine living in the Mexico of 20 years ago, but with elements of modern time. Lo de Marcos has it all: local, authentic Mexican cuisine that ranges from street vendors to gourmet, as well as an increasing gastronomical district where every season we see new, innovative restaurants pop-up.
Lo de Marcos is simply lovely. From its cobblestone roads to its legendary town square, it is a town that engulfs you in a sense of peace and comfort. The true gems of Lo de Marcos are its three beaches: Lo de Marcos Beach with its two kilometers of virgin, golden sands adjacent to an estuary that seems taken out of a fantasy story; Las Minitas Beach, which is an iconic beach that seems like a painting inspired by the Blue Lagoon, and Los Venados Beach, which is hidden by the jungle and is just as breathtaking as its sister beaches.
Everything about Lo de Marcos is alluring. The kind nature of the local townspeople, who go about their day in their paradise as if it was the norm, and the perfect blend of nature and civilization that cleanses the soul and liberates the mind. The diversity and heterogeneous nature of the people will shock you but refresh you as well. After all, why settle for ordinary when you can get extraordinary?
Many businesses help Lo de Marcos thrive, but I found that there is one that stands above the rest. If you decide to visit Lo de Marcos, you will inevitably hear about a real estate company that has solely become the single largest promoter of Lo de Marcos, and another magical town named Los Ayala (located 15 north). Both part of the enchanting Riviera Nayarit. This company is named Galván Real Estate and Services. Galvan compels tourism from all over the world to come and live the Lo de Marcos and Riviera Nayarit experience, and this directly benefits the tourism industry of the town. An increase in occupancy rates, new restaurants, activities, and stores, are all evidence of the impact GRE has had on this little chunk of paradise. It is their mission as a company to make a connoisseur out of everybody, and they work diligently to make sure everybody knows that this wonderful place exists. More of us should follow suit.
So allow us to share our treasure with you. Visit Lo de Marcos and Riviera Nayarit. But be forewarned; you can fall into a love spell. Once you are captured by the essence of this region, you won’t want to leave. But then again, we will not hold it against you, for only a fool would ignore such a beautiful paradise available to all those who want to experience it.
