You may be pondering in your head if you should make the move to Mexico when you retire—or to just do it now with your entire family. Rivera Nayarit is a great place for kids whether you are planning on becoming a local or strictly just visiting. Here are our top 3 places to visit with kids:


  1. Banderas Bay

Top 3 Places to Visit in Rivera Nayarit With Kids 1

The Banderas Bay is a must-go for all in the Riviera– US News has rated it the 2nd best thing to do in this area. It is the largest natural bay in Mexico and it has beautiful blue waters and stunning soft sand. It is great for families because the water is shallow enough for young tots to wad and swim in, while the older kids can enjoy activities such as boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and/or actual surfing! The bay is also well known for humpback whales making an appearance!


  1. Grupo Ecolagico Sea Turtle Rescue

Top 3 Places to Visit in Rivera Nayarit With Kids 2

There are various sea turtle hatcheries all through the Rivera. This will definitely be a memorable activity as children can participate in the care and release of these endangered creatures. The Olive Ridley and Leatherback turtles lay their eggs from June-November, and it takes about 2 months for the eggs to hatch. So before driving out with you family, make sure to call the hatcheries and see that you will be able to participate in a release.


  1. Aquaventuras Park
