When walking along the streets of Santiago Ixcuintla, the municipal seat of the area, you will be thrilled by the intense colors and essence of what it means to be Mexican.
You will delight in this town as you explore the archways of the main plaza, gaze upon the church and marvel at the homes, many of which are considered important pieces of cultural heritage.
This town is also known for its friendly people and abundant sense of culture and history found around every corner. And as testament to the history of this tranquil escape in the state of Nayarit, the “Nuestras Raíces” mosaic mural is fascinating with its 100 meters (328 feet) of intensely colorful tiles, which tell the story of our Mexican identity.
South of this town are numerous beaches such as Los Corchos, Sesteo and Boca de Camichín, where you can enjoy all the advantages of these almost completely virgin natural escapes. Aiming to protect these natural wonders, various ecotourism projects have been developed in order to give visitors to this municipality the opportunity to explore the area with out negatively impacting the environment.
