Riviera Nayarit is inviting travelers to explore Mexico’s Pacific Treasure from the comfort of their own homes with virtual tours and more.

Since March 31, Riviera Nayarit has shared virtual experiences, recipes and cooking tips, webinars and other activities on its social media channels using the hashtag #StayHomewithRivieraNayarit. The destination has also created informative webinars for both travelers and travel advisors.

The destination has affirmed its commitment to the safety of travelers while respecting the preventive measures in place due to COVID-19, and will be maintaining a continuous presence on its communication channels to encourage travelers to visit the destination once the health crisis has passed.

“Dear traveling friends, we are facing a challenge that we will overcome together by working as a team,” said Marc Murphy, managing director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, in a press release statement. “Together we will move ahead and when we do, we will be here waiting for you with open arms.”
