Tropical Musings from Paradise September 2019 Edition

Posted by AdminGalvan on September 4, 2019

We cannot believe that it is already September and we will begin welcoming friends to Riviera Nayarit as soon as early October.

This month we would like to take everyone to the Pueblo of Los Ayala which is located about 10 Kilometers from Lo de Marcos and certainly worthy of a visit.

Los Ayala –

Discover Los Ayala, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. A beautiful little town in the Pacific Coast of Mexico only 45 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Los Ayala is special for many reasons. It is a town that can still boast the allure of a traditional, fisherman’s town, but with enough modern comforts to create the perfect balance for welcomed tourists.

Los Ayala has it all: culture, nature, recreation, gastronomy and more. It’s privileged geographic location gives it beautiful beaches where you can enjoy a nice walk down the golden sand or engage in more adrenaline-packed activities such as boat tours, diving, marine wildlife observation, party boats or snorkel. There is an activity for those seeking thrills as well as those in serious need of R&R. So needless to say there is something for everyone.
