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.

It may be a warm and steamy August, but the local Navy League Council is already hard at work preparing for the 22nd consecutive year of raising funds to distribute toys to needy kids during the Christmas holidays. They’re collaborating with their many local sponsors, importantly including the Marriott CasaMagna Resort & Spa, Vista Vallarta Golf Club, Coldwell Banker Real Estate, and others to make this the best year ever.
Over the past 21 years, the local Toys for Tots program has distributed more than 175,000 toys (and smiles!) to some of the neediest kids throughout the Bahia. This year we hope to raise enough money to hand out at least another 8,000 toys! In addition, we plan to add to the dozens of playgrounds we’ve constructed over the past 20+ years.
Our two major fundraisers will be held in early December. First up will be a charity golf scramble on Saturday, December 7 at the Vista Vallarta Golf Club. You can sign up yourself or as a Team by contacting Jerry Lafferty at LAFFJA@aol.com. This is a fun annual outing that raises loads of money for a very heartwarming and fun cause.
Next up will be the annual Toys for Tots Charity Ball at the Marriott Hotel the evening of December 8. It will be an evening of great dancing and a delicious dinner served by the award-winning Marriott chef. Again, contact Jerry Lafferty if you also plan to attend the Dinner/Dance.
Plan to attend both events, even if you’re a novice golfer (or dancer.) We have prizes for about every skill level – the idea is to have fun!
We’ll be in contact later in the year regarding plans for the distribution of toys throughout the Bahia de Banderas. It will be done in early January, when the kids return from Christmas vacation on or near Three Kings Day.
We’d love to have you join us on this heart-warming day, a day you won’t soon forget. Be prepared to shed a few tears!
