The American tour publication Frommer’s included the Riviera Nayarit in its list of “Top Destinations” for 2014. Taking second place right after Hawaii’s Big Island, the Riviera Nayarit is clearly among the best of the 14 recommended worldwide destinations for travelers next year.
During their participation in the East Coast Road Show, the public relations team of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) had the opportunity to interview Pauline Frommer and her team. That presentation left such a positive impression that today the Riviera Nayarit is in the world tourism spotlight.
The www.frommers.com webpage receives 495,917 unique visitors a month from around the globe. The editorial also sends its publication out to the media and its tourist markets, making it a top influencer within the world’s tourism community through its commentary and advice.
“Move over, Mayan Riviera! The so-called Riviera Nayarit, a blessedly undiscovered (for now) 192-mile stretch of Mexico’s mid-Pacific coast from San Blas to Sayulita, is positioning itself to become Mexico’s next big (tourist) thing,” read the article, published this month.
In devising their list of the most promising destinations for the coming months, Frommer’s editors looked at politics, accessibility, popularity, major events – and most importantly, whether a destination is potentially affordable for the average traveler.
The text continues: “With its perfectly preserved colonial towns, exquisite white sand beaches, hipster surfing enclaves, and raft of nature experiences (bird and whale watching, turtle nesting communities and more) it has the raw materials to become a major fun-in-the-sun draw.”
Among the other destinations that made the list were Bali, Indonesia; India; Berlin, Germany; Taiwan; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina; Umea, Switzerland; Liverpool, England; and others.
The article concludes: In just the last five years, a slew of high-end, all-inclusive resorts have opened. So go now, before the crowds descend – and they may do so sooner than later, as there’s soon to be more airlift from the U.S. to Puerto Vallarta, the gateway to the Riviera Nayarit.”
