Rincón de Guayabitos is one of the best-known and most popular beach destinations in the Riviera Nayarit—no matter the time of year, tourists flock to it in search of great local food, awesome beaches, and fun souvenirs. Wait, you haven’t been there yet? Well, read on!
Enjoy the beaches
The beaches at Rincón de Guayabitos are idyllic, with emerald green waters at just the right temperature and the perfect tide for a swim at any time of day. Of course, if you’d rather just chill out on the sand, simply pull up a lounge chair and grab your favorite book.
Explore Isla del Coral (Coral Island)
Isla del Coral is one of Rincón de Guayabitos’ signature attractions and a favorite tour for visitors. The water here is crystal clear and turquoise green: Isla del Coral is also known as the Riviera Nayarit’s “Natural Aquarium” thanks to its underwater clarity. To get there, we recommend taking a boat from Rincón de Guayabitos; it’s about a 10- to 12-minute ride to get there. Consider heading out as early as possible so you can beat the crowds and enjoy it to the max. Keep in mind that in high season it can get pretty busy with people snorkeling and paddleboarding.
Savor the local food
Guayabitos offers visitors a fine variety of local food, but there are a few dishes you just can’t miss: the traditional shrimp and the pescado en vara, literally “fish on a stick.” It’s really the tastiest way to eat seafood on the beach. Follow that up with a ceviche raspado, a different take on the usual ceviche. For us, it’s even better!
Visit Los Ayala
Since you’re already in Rincón de Guayabitos we highly recommend a stop at another beach that we’re sure you’ll enjoy—Los Ayala. This is a great beach for families thanks to its translucent water, calm waves, and delicious food. It’s a must if you’re in the area!
