The Riviera Nayarit Wins “Best Luxury Destination” In The 2016 Travvy Awards

The good news just keeps on coming in this New Year for the Riviera Nayarit: during the most recent edition of the Travvy Awards, the Destination took home the gold statue for “Best Luxury Destination: Mexico.”

The Travvy Awards recognize entities with the highest standards of excellence in the tourism industry. The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) nominated the Destination.

“It’s very important to kick off the New Year with something like this to keep us top of mind with consumers,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit CVB. “We also need to point out the voting for these awards is done by the same agents that belong to Travel Alliance Partners, who are the ones who recommend and sell the tourism destinations.”

“This achievement is a result of all the work we’ve done to position ourselves as a luxury destination,” added Murphy. “There’s no doubt the backing of the State Government headed by Roberto Sandoval has been key. This is just one of the many excellent outcomes that have been taking place because of that.”

The Riviera Nayarit’s triumph was announced on January 6, 2016, in New York City. The Riviera Maya took home the silver and Los Cabos won bronze.

The New York office for the Mexico Tourism Board received the gold award won by Mexico as a country within the category of “Best Luxury Destination.”

 

Both hotels and hotel chains with properties in the Riviera Nayarit were among the winners in the long list of categories that made up the 2016 Travvy Awards. For a complete list of winners click http://www.travvyawards.com/

Nuevo Vallarta’s Bike Path: A Must In The Riviera Nayarit

Since its inauguration in March 2015, the Nuevo Vallarta Bike Path has become a welcome attraction to enjoy in the Riviera Nayarit. Every day, tourists and locals come to run, skate or cycle along this recreational trail.

The Fraccionamiento Náutico Turístico Nuevo Vallarta neighborhood is home to many of the Destination’s hotels, which is why building the bike path was an excellent decision on the part of the Nayarit State Government for continued development of this microdestination.

The bike path is nearly two miles long and follows the Avenida Paseo de los Cocoteros, just a few yards from the beach. As they meander down the trail visitors can enjoy the diverse flora and fauna of the area, especially the birdlife.

 

Bicycles have recently grown in popularity in Mexico, with both families and cyclists as a community always seeking safety, which is something the bike path offers with its well-placed street and transit signage.

It’s a known fact that North Americans love to run, and here they’ll find a great space to indulge their pastime when they visit Mexico’s Pacific Treasure.

The Riviera Nayarit hosts several races during the year, including a 5K, 10K and even a Tourism Half Marathon; thus the bike path has become an ideal spot for training and preparing for the competitions.

Brazil, one of the Emerging Markets of interest to the Riviera Nayarit, is also known for its runners. In fact, Brazilian journalists in town for a FAM trip participated in the last Tourism Half Marathon.

Connecting Flamingos With Bucerías

 

In case two miles isn’t quite long enough, the bike path connects with the Maestro Flamingos Condominium walkway, which extends another nearly two- and-a-quarter miles until it connects with the road. This segment also offers a chance to get on the road to Bucerías via a path that begins where the hotels end in Flamingos.
