WALK THROUGH THE PLAZA DE ARMAS


Built on pre-Hispanic ruins from the 16th Century, the Plaza de Armas is the gathering place for both locals and visitors. Enjoy the pleasant climate while exploring the Presidencia Municipal and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, with its towering symmetrical bell towers, strolling among colorful fountains and cheerful people proud of their beautiful state. Be sure to buy local souvenirs at the portals with Nayarit names.


On Wednesdays, enjoy the danzon and dance on the cobblestone with the locals. 


WALK THE COBBLESTONE STREETS


Tour the city on El Tepibus, which takes you along the main avenues and tells you about the city’s stories and legends, in order to understand it better. While walking through the cobblestone streets and colorful Viceregal buildings, stop at the Regional Museum; it has archaeological pieces from all over the state. Admire the murals that adorn the walls of the Palacio de Gobierno. These murals narrate the country’s history through people of the state. On your way out, make a stop and behold a Mexican symbol at the old Alameda Park.
