Double-digit tourism growth predicted at Jalisco’s haciendas and manors

They’re pricey, but visitors can expect much more than just a place to lay their heads

Double-digit growth is predicted in visitor numbers this year to rural Jalisco, where an overnight stay at a historical hacienda or manor is one of the unique experiences on offer.

Both Mexican and foreign tourists are increasingly willing to pay rates of between 2,500 and 10,000 pesos (US $130 to $520) a night to stay at properties that provide a rich experience full of culture, history and art, according to a report in the newspaper El Economista.

Antonio Gutiérrez Martín, president of the Association of Haciendas and Manors of Jalisco (AHCJ), said that visitors who opt to stay at such properties can expect much more than just a place to lay their heads.

“For example, in the city of Sayula, you could have a rate of 2,500 pesos [per night] but that doesn’t mean that they’re only going to give you a bed and a bathroom. It implies a complete experience, your senses – sight, smell and touch – will be awakened . . .” he said.

Gutiérrez added that visitors to Sayula, a municipality about 120 kilometers south of Guadalajara, can visit the house where acclaimed writer Juan Rulfo was born.

Sampling regional specialties such as cajeta (caramelized goat’s milk) and ponche de granada (pomegranate punch) and visiting workshops where knives are handmade by skilled artisans are also popular attractions in Sayula, he said.

Returning to the subject of unique, traditional accommodation, Gutiérrez said that the target market for historical haciendas and manors is people aged 40 years and older.

“Due to the rates we charge, it’s not easy tourism, it’s tourism in which the standards are quite high,” he said.

“We have rates of up to 10,000 pesos. For example, there are rooms at Hacienda El Carmen in Ahualulco de Mercado [a municipality 75 kilometers west of Guadalajara] where it’s quite an experience . . . [having] a private space with a private pool and spa,” Gutiérrez said.

He said that AHCJ data shows that 80% of people who stay at the organization’s 40 properties are Mexicans and the other 20% are foreign tourists.

The latter mostly stay at properties in or around the better-known tourist destinations of Tequila and Puerto Vallarta, Gutiérrez explained.

People who choose to stay at the haciendas and manors in Jalisco can expect a high-quality and memorable experience, the AHCJ chief added.

“. . . We have committees that review quality standards of each of our associates and that means there is a guarantee that the experience will be positive.”

BUCERÍAS: ART AND WATER SPORTS

BUCERÍAS: ART AND WATER SPORTS

Relaxing in Bucerías can be very easy, with its wide range of entertainment including excellent restaurants, a thriving music scene, an art walk and both residential and commercial areas. The town’s name comes from the word “bucear” (to dive), as this activity is related to fishing, which has sustained the town since its founding. The Estatua del Buzo (Statue of the Diver), close to the main square, perfectly captures this tradition and is an ideal place for souvenir photos.

Bucerías: art and watersports, vallarta lifestyles

To Start

After breakfast at one of the various options in this Riviera Nayarit micro-destination, a short walk along its streets is the best way to begin. Thanks to its oceanfront location, Bucerías’s main square is the ideal place to get a feel for the town’s lifestyle and relaxed pace. To one side is the Artisans’ Market, which is very lively on weekends. A little hidden, but easy to reach, is Paseo del Beso (Alley of the Kiss), a pedestrian passageway connecting the market with the town, featuring curious murals highlighting romance.

Beaches

Bucerías’s long, wide beach, with its fine sand and gentle waves, is undoubtedly one of its main attractions and one of the favorite destinations for families with young children. You will find many restaurants here, especially near the center of town. Due to its excellent climate throughout the year, this beach is an ideal place to practice and admire extreme watersports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing. And it is consistently included in SEMARNAT’s list of the cleanest beaches in Mexico.

Dining

From the simple to the gourmet, there are a number of options to consider here, many located on Lázaro Cárdenas and nearby streets, right next to shops and art galleries. Starting from the main square and heading north along the Pacific, a wide variety of oceanfront family restaurants offer exquisite specialties based on fish and seafood.

Shopping

One of Bucerías’s busiest areas is the Zona Dorada (Golden Zone), where there are lots of boutiques, shops and galleries with different types of art. Consider taking the opportunity to admire the mystical and colorful Huichol crafts, especially the yarn paintings and beaded animal figures—not to be missed!

Nightlife

You can start the evening at one of Bucerías’s coffee shops, where you can enjoy blends from different parts of Mexico and the world, as well as exquisite fine pastries.

During the winter season, there are events such as the Farmers Market and the Bucerías Art Walk, which organizes art-related festivities. Throughout the year, there also are workshops in various disciplines.

When night falls, many bars have live music, performed by residents or some of the renowned musicians who visit. And the town’s culinary offerings have increased recently, with the addition of gourmet restaurants featuring various specialties, including Mexican, Asian and Italian dishes, among many others.

One of Riviera Nayarit’s most visited micro-destinations, Bucerías is ideal for anyone looking for a quiet weekend getaway and/or spending the day in the company of family or friends.

CHRIS EVANS FILMS SERIES IN THE RIVIERA NAYARIT

CHRIS EVANS FILMS SERIES IN THE RIVIERA NAYARIT

The Riviera Nayarit is in the headlines again, thanks to a visit from Chris Evans: the famous “Captain America” from the Marvel Universe is filming a new series for a streaming platform in the destination. Evans is also the series’ executive producer.

The news that “Captain America” was in Mexico’s Pacific Treasure began circulating this Wednesday on social media. It was quickly picked up by local journalists and later confirmed by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).

Over the course of more than a week the production took full advantage of the destination’s beautiful natural scenery and luxurious hotel infrastructure for its shoots, which also included extras from the local community.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series “Defending Jacob”—developed by Mark Bomback and directed by Morten Tyldum—consists of 8 episodes and is based on the homonymous novel published in 2012 by William Landay. Although there’s no date set for the premiere, it’s rumored to be by end of year.

Chris Evans has become a world-class star thanks to his role as “Captain America” in the Marvel series. The character has its own film trilogy including: “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011), “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014), and “Captain America: Civil War” (2016).

Though “Captain America” has appeared in cameos and small roles in other Marvel films, he’s one of the main characters in the Avenger movies, which feature several superheroes from the comic book universe.

Over a hundred movies, including the well-known “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” “Limitless,” and “Elysium;” programming from top stations including Univision, Telemundo, Televisa, TV Azteca, Canal 40, BBC, The Discovery Channel, National Geographic, MTV, NHK Japan, ESPN, and Redneck Island Reality Show; plus a long list of music videos and TV commercials have been filmed in the Riviera Nayarit.

DON’T MISS THESE RIVIERA NAYARIT FAIRS, FIESTAS, AND TRADITIONS

DON’T MISS THESE RIVIERA NAYARIT FAIRS, FIESTAS, AND TRADITIONS

The true essence of Mexico is best experienced through its traditions, the legacy of the Spaniards and indigenous people. Fairs, religious festivities, and other colorful ancestral celebrations are part and parcel of Mexican life, all of them vibrant with music, chants, food, and fun.

In the Riviera Nayarit, these events also help to promote tourism in coastal towns such as Bucerías and Sayulita, for example, where every year religious festivities attract thousands of visitors. Gastronomy and music are a fundamental part of the celebrations.

Consider the Riviera Nayarit for your next vacation! Here’s a list of the Fairs, Fiestas, and Traditions you cannot miss!

Bucerías’ Feast of Our Lady of Peace
The Bucerías Patron Saints Feast in honor of our Lady of Peace has traditionally been held between January 16 and 24 for the past 59 years. Besides being an essential part of local tradition, over the past few years, it has become a tourist attraction as well. Cultural, artistic, and athletic activities take place during the festivities, but there’s no doubt one of the most colorful is the fishermen’s seafaring pilgrimage. The fishermen deck their boats out with flowers, colorful ribbons, and religious motifs. The plaza is dotted with stands selling Mexican treats; there is folk dancing, fireworks, and lots of other activities that involve both locals and visitors.

San Blas Patron Saint Festivities
Every February 3 the people of San Blas celebrate the Patron Saint who protects hunters with a very colorful and unique party. The activities begin at dawn with a heartfelt rendition of “Las Mañanitas” and the traditional Midnight Mass. The celebration includes dances, processions on land and sea aboard gaily decorated boats, and the main pilgrimage lead by an image of the saint. The procession leaves the church to bless the ocean so the seamen can have a successful fishing season and prosperity comes to the port.

Bucerías Oyster Festival
Every April 28 Bucerías hosts one of its most symbolic events. The Oyster Festival celebrates local oyster divers with a party that emphasizes togetherness and brotherhood within the community. That day marks the end of the season for the El Punto oyster bank (separate from the general conclusion of the season on June 1). Other festival activities include crowning the festival queen, who represents the divers and is chosen by the festival attendees. Of note is the fact this event is unique in the region and is one of the many great attractions offered by the Riviera Nayarit.

The Battle of the Saints in Mexcaltitán
The Battle of the Saints is one of the most representative traditional ceremonies on Mexcaltitán island, located in the municipality of Santiago Ixcuintla. The festivities are in honor of San Pedro and San Pablo; the community prays to them for a good shrimp season. On June 29 a pilgrimage is made emulating the Mexicas or Aztecs, who are said to have left Aztlán to establish the great city of Tenochtitlán.

Jala and Xalisco Corn Festival
The communities of Jala and Xalisco—located a short distance from the coast of Nayarit—celebrate several events to commemorate their Corn Festival (Feria del Elote). This celebration takes place on August 13-15 and includes cultural activities and artistic presentations. In Jala, they also host horse races and a traditional contest for the biggest ear of corn in the world. Of note is the fact this particular celebration takes place during the patron saint festivities in honor of the Virgin of the Assumption.

Feast of St Francis
The Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit celebrates its patron saint festivities in honor of St Francis of Assisi from September 26 – October 4. During those days the Plaza del Sol and the town itself are brimming with athletic, religious, artistic, and cultural activities. As tradition dictates, the Friendship Torch is raffled off, and the novena begins in honor of the Patron Saint.

Day of the Dead in Sayulita | Bucerías
According to legend, the souls of the departed return during the first days of November to visit their loved ones. The Magical Town of Sayulita prepares a welcome from October 31 – November 2 with the ¡Vivan los Muertos! (Long Live the Dead!) Festival with a program filled with music, flowers, processions, and delicious offerings, not to mention a colorful riot of altars for the dead. The festival has been held for the past nine years to help preserve Mexican tradition. It’s an experience much beloved by both locals and visitors from abroad.

This year, Bucerías will join in the festivities with a cultural and artistic program, though it’s well-known that the town already hosts a traditional exhibit of altars for the dead in the main square.

Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Sayulita
The Magical Town of Sayulita celebrates Our Lady of Guadalupe from December 1 – 12. The festival and its demonstration of faith bring together families, businesses, and civil associations from around the community as well as neighboring towns and tourists. During the novena, the different neighborhoods host processions with floats in honor of the Virgin. The townspeople then accompany the floats through the main road to the sanctuary created in the Virgin’s honor at the town’s central plaza. The organizing committee also coordinates other cultural activities besides the pilgrimages, with the main festivities occurring on December 12.

PYROTECHNICIANS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD WILL MEET IN PUERTO VALLARTA

PYROTECHNICIANS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD WILL MEET IN PUERTO VALLARTA

This week the International Symposium on Fireworks will be held in Puerto Vallarta, where the objective is to address issues related to safety, explained Miguel Zamora Nuño, president of the Union of Pyrotechnics of Jalisco.

As a representative of the country to visitors from 36 nations that will meet in Puerto Vallarta from May 6 to 10, Zamora Nuño explained that they seek to standardize criteria worldwide regarding the safety of manufacturing, transportation, and storage of Mexican pyrotechnics, and create an internal contingency plan to respond in a timely manner to an emergency.

The largest buyer of pyrotechnics in the world is the United States and the intention of Mexican producers is to meet the quality required by the US government, to be able to sell it, the leader of pyrotechnics in Jalisco added.

“The laws that regulate us do not allow us to use certain materials that we need to reach a commercial grade with the United States and that is why we initiated a regulatory reform, because 85% of the product we manufacture stays in Mexico and the pyrotechnicians want to show their products to Latin America and in the United States. ”

He added that the Mexican authorities have demonized the pyrotechnics and do not listen to the producers, but they do allow importing, especially pyrotechnic from China, which is more dangerous and represents about 40% of what is sold in Mexico.

THE VERY BREAST OF JOANNA! AT THE RED ROOM

THE VERY BREAST OF JOANNA! AT THE RED ROOM

The New York Times has hailed her as “One of the Best!” and the Florida Sun writes that she is “Beyond impressions, Parody and Burlesque.”

Danny Mininni, Act II’s founder recently shared this about JoAnna. “13 years ago when I first moved to Puerto Vallarta, I was on the beach and this man walked up to me and said hey you want to see a show. We chatted a bit and he told me he did this show at Peter Deep’s Club Mañana, they had a small showroom back then. This was my FIRST introduction to PV Cabaret, well really the first time I had ever seen this sort of show. ALL LIVE SINGING DRAG QUEEN SHOW. I will never forget it. It was Aunt JoAnna back than and she shared the show with Kim Kuzma and I thought ohhhh they need to have their own shows.
