Conde Nast Best Places to Go in 2021
Conde Nast—Megan Spurrell
Riviera Nayarit, Mexico
“Many of the resort towns in Mexico were designed as tourism destinations,” says Zachary Rabinor of Journey Mexico. But that’s not the case with the Riviera Nayarit, on Mexico’s Pacific coast, where new resorts coexist with, and incorporate, a thriving local culture and population. “The Riviera Nayarit has a long history of Indigenous cultures that evolved into vibrant modern-day fishing, farming, and mining villages.” One such town, the ancient island of Mexcaltitán, just earned recognition as a Pueblo Mágico (an area of preserved cultural heritage), joining the surf town of Sayulita in the distinction.
That essence is more meaningful than ever, as the Riviera Nayarit gets a long-awaited smattering of new resorts in 2021. The One&Only Mandarina (pictured above) has just opened in a secluded swath of jungle, with a Polo & Equestrian Club to follow. This spring, Auberge will open its boutique Susurros del Corazón (pictured below) overlooking Banderas Bay in Punta Mita. By the end of the year, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve Riviera Nayarit is expected to join them.
Flying in will get even easier. Daily nonstop flights on American Airlines from cities like Dallas, Phoenix, and Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta Airport will be reinstated by the end of 2020, along with a new route from Charlotte, North Carolina. United Airlines will also begin seasonal flight routes from Denver, L.A., and Chicago in fall 2021. Southwest resumed daily flights from Houston in October, in addition to adding one new flight from Phoenix. Read the full article here.
