Nayarit is a state rich in tourism, not only sun and beach but also adventure, rural, religious, and gastronomic, to mention a few.
It is best known for being a destination of large and luxurious hotels in the state's south, in the Riviera Nayarit. And now, the new government intends to generate actions for the benefit of sustainable tourism, as ecosystems worldwide are visibly damaged, both in that area and in the north of the state.
"The change in Nayarit is going to be of substance, not only of form," said Juan Enrique SuÃÂ¡rez, new Secretary of Tourism of the state. The beneficiaries will be the native and indigenous peoples for whom the recognition and vindication of linguistic rights and revaluation of the state's cultural, historical, social, and natural richness will be promoted.
The Marietas and Islas Marias Islands were included in the World Network of Biosphere Reserves of the Man and the Biosphere Program (UNESCO MaB) in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Nayarit has four sites in the List of Wetlands of International Importance, known as the Ramsar List, and six federal Protected Natural Areas.
In the cultural sphere, the town of MexcaltitÃÂ¡n de Uribe was declared a Historical Monument Zone by INAH in 1986, and the NÃÂ¡ayari (Cora) and WixÃÂ¡rika (Huichol) indigenous languages, with their various variants, were recognized in 2012 in the national inventory of intangible cultural heritage.
For its part, the federal government will also have a hand in boosting tourism in the state of Nayarit. "We are going to develop more the north of the state for tourism because everything that is the south of Nayarit has had a good development, what is next to Vallarta, Banderas Bay, Punta Mita, but towards the north even more development is required, and there is great tourism potential," expressed the president.
"That is why we are already building the new highway from Las Varas to Compostela, and we are also going to build the highway from Compostela to Tepic, and we are going to modernize the Tepic airport so that it will not only have access to those beaches from the Vallarta airport," he commented.
The Los Cabos Tourism Board introduced its new Loyalty Program, which allows travel advisors to earn redeemable rewards points for each guest night they book in the destination.read more
