Top Tips of Nightlife in the Riviera Nayarit You Should Check Out

The Riviera Nayarit isn’t famous for its nightlife. It has garnered international attention due to its couple of world-class marinas, its upscale gated community in Punta Mita, and its variety of quaint, bohemian beach towns such as Sayulita and San Pancho. But its nightlife is not as legendary as, say, Puerto Vallarta’s. There is a reason for that; its bars and nightclubs are scattered among different towns and not concentrated in a single pedestrian street. But Riviera Nayarit has a nightlife, and here you’ll get the best tips to make the most of it:

Choose your town and make sure you have a safe way back – Let’s say you are staying at a villa in Punta Mita and have decided to hit the funky nightclubs of Sayulita. Excellent choice, I would say. However, the problem with that plan is that the road to Sayulita is not exactly a superhighway. So, if you were driving and got a few drinks during the night, it could get a bit risky. This is easy to avoid just defining a designated driver in advance, getting a taxi or private chauffeur, or simply staying overnight, which has its own challenges.

Get some tacos before (or after) – You know that say “when in Rome, do as Romans.” It applies here. That’s the Mexicans secret for a long, fun night out. Let’s say you are going to The Drunken Duck in Bucerias to listen to some good rock and dominate the dance floor. Stopping at a nearby ‘taquería’ for an order of ‘tacos al pastor’ will help your organism better manage the upcoming doses of alcohol. If you forget and end up dancing on top of the bar with no shirt, some tacos will help you get back on track.

Book in advance – Some of the best bars and nightclubs in the Riviera Nayarit are hotels. If you would like to visit one of them while not staying in that particular hotel, make sure to call and check the hotel’s policy first. Some hotels allow visitors to their restaurants and bars (especially during low season); others may not let you in. To avoid any setbacks, make sure to call, and if you are welcome, book in advance.

Nuevo Vallarta and Sayulita’s nightlife scenes are vibrant – Sure, each town in the diverse and eclectic Riviera Nayarit has its own good bars and nightclubs options. But here, we are giving you some Top Tips, and if you can visit them all, our recommendation is to focus on Nuevo Vallarta and Sayulita. These two towns are very different, and that reflects in their nightlife. Nuevo Vallarta has plenty of options for high-end restaurants and sophisticated bars. For even more sophistication, Punta Mita has its own share of upscale bars. On the other hand, Sayulita is more about the hippie vibe, with cool beach clubs and reggae-inspired bars.
