By Claudette Covey

Coming off a highly successful 2014, and with a slate of new hotels, airline routes and attractions coming online, Riviera Nayarit tourism officials believe the destination is poised for still more growth over the year several years. “Looking at 2015 and beyond, I am confident that Riviera Nayarit will continue to see a rise in the number of travelers visiting the destination,” said Richard Zarkin, public relations manager for the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “The new routes being offered by Southwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines, hotel debuts like One&Only Mandarina and new attractions like Cirque de Soleil help illustrate the rising popularity of this Pacific Coast destination.”

In 2014, the number of travelers visiting Riviera Nayarit increased 17 percent over 2013. “Last year, we welcomed a total of 2.42 million people to the destination and saw an eight percent increase in tourism revenue to $1.8 billion,” said Zarkin, adding that the boom in business is continuing undiminished this year.

As Riviera Nayarit’s star continues to rise, its tourism infrastructure is becoming increasingly more sophisticated, with new hotels coming online and existing properties undergoing major renovations.

For starters, ground is expected to break by year’s end on the ultra-luxury One&Only Mandarina, which will house 145 villas nestled in a rainforest, with accommodations ranging from ocean cliff villas, tree house villas and mountain villas.

The Matlali Hotel in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle recently opened its doors, featuring 40 villa-style accommodations with ocean and mountain views, fully equipped kitchens, and separate living and dining areas.

In the beach town of Bucerías, work is scheduled to begin at year’s end on a boardwalk with shops restaurants and bars designed to enhance the new marina. Bucerías will also soon be the recipient of an artificial reef that will extend nearly 100 feet.

In still more developments, Riviera Nayarit is about to become more accessible, with a new swath of 30-plus miles of highway between Jala and Compostela set to open this summer.

Air connectivity to the destination has been enhanced as well. Southwest Airlines received approval for flights from Houston to Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport in Puerto Vallarta, with service scheduled to commence in October. On June 7, Southwest will add flights to Puerto Vallarta from Santa Ana, Calif. Alaska Airlines plans to add thrice-weekly between Santa Ana and Puerto Vallarta, pending Department of Transportation approval.

On the hills between the Pacific Ocean and Sierra Madre mountains, Matlali is a hotel that appeals to everyone. Families, honeymooners and adrenaline-junkies all flock here for the adventure, culture and natural beauty. In fact, Matlali is situated in its very own nature preserve just outside the cobblestoned-fishing village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. And the gentle surfing spots of Sayulita and Punta Mita are a short drive away. Adventures are at every turn here and thanks to Matlali’s upscale, homely comfort, you’re recharging and relaxing for the next day’s escapades within no time. From the Junior Suites and super-sized Villas big enough to lose yourself in, to the ancient Hikuri and Haramara therapies in Makawé Spa, it’s all about kicking back then getting stuck in. Of course, days may be spent lolling about by/in your private pool followed by dinner on your terrace or the ocean-facing Raixes restaurant. But a shuttle ride to Eva Mandarina Beach Club is a must for seafood fans where the freshest ceviches and catch of the day are matched by potent margaritas courtesy of Beach Club Manager Israel Díaz Pelayo. Top adventure: hop on a boat and check out Marieta Island for some scuba diving or snorkelling then head along Playa Escondida to catch a glimpse of humpback whales, sea turtles and rare blue-footed boobies.
