Journalist Fam Program

The Riviera Nayarit CVB supports numerous media familiarization (FAM) trips a year, that highlight the destination’s various hotels, attractions, restaurants, world class spas, championship golf courses, wedding venues, adventures/tours, shopping, and more.

To be considered for the program, journalists must have an assignment with a media outlet with a readership and/or viewership that is aligned with our target audiences in key markets.

Freelance journalists must have an assignment letter or correspondence from the editor of the outlet indicating that the story will be published.



  • Media are responsible for incidentals such as phone calls, mini-bar, non-scheduled meals, and laundry.
  • Sponsorship does not extend to guests of the media and the CVB is only able to make arrangements for journalists on assignment.
  • Outlets that request to send a photographer or additional crew/staff members in addition to a journalist, must produce a feature story that reaches The Riviera Nayarit target audience (this will be determined on a case-by-case basis).
  • All media traveling to Riviera Nayarit on a sponsored trip must complete a Media Profile Form before they arrive at the destination.


If your editorial policy prevents you from accepting sponsored trips, we are happy to provide media rates and serve as a resource as you develop your Riviera Nayarit itinerary.
