One of the greatest natural spectacles that we can see today has already begun in the Pacific. Since December, you can already enjoy the whale watching season in one of the best locations for it: the Riviera Nayarit, on the shores of the Mexican Pacific.

Located on the west coast of Mexico, this region is considered one of the best places on the planet to observe all kinds of marine species and specifically in the coming months for whale watching.

Riviera Nayarit

From mid-December to the end of March, numerous marine giants migrate to the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean that bathe the Bay of Banderas, coming to feed, mate and give birth to small calves. In its waters, we can see abundant humpback whales, orcas, and dolphins in very few places in the world.

Hundreds of whales gather in this Nayarit destination’s warm and calm waters to surprise tourists and onlookers who travel to the destination at this time of the year. The giant cetaceans travel thousands of kilometers searching for a safe and comforting place where they can mate and give birth to their new calves.

Whale watching in the Riviera is one of the most spectacular attractions in the region. The majestic humpback whales arrive in Banderas Bay, after passing through many of the coastal towns of the destination, as part of their annual migration. Their spectacular jumps amaze all visitors from many parts of the world to see this incredible event.

There are numerous places where you can enjoy whale watching in Riviera Nayarit, from Nuevo Vallarta to Bucerías, Punta de Mita, Sayulita and Rincón de Guayabitos, and all the way down the Pacific coast to the town of San Blas.

Yet, if there is one attraction that will really make a trip to Barcelona shine, it’s the Sagrada Familia. This Catholic basilica, designed by Antonio Gaudí, is the ultimate example of Catalan modernist architecture. It’s also the most visited church in Europe after St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. When completed, it will be the tallest Christian church in the world.

The Riviera Nayarit Visitors and Convention Bureau recommends booking a whale watching tour in small boats. This type of transportation has a low environmental impact and allows travelers to get closer to these mammals without disturbing them. Because whales are an endangered species, some tour operators allocate part of their profits to the research and conservation of this species.
