Emerald green mountains, pristine beaches and magnificent sunsets are some of the many benefits of living along the coast of the Mexican Riviera. Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, a short and convenient flight from many North American cities.
Living by the sea offers a wide variety of experiences, from the peaceful and relaxing to adrenaline charged outdoor adventures. Choose from outdoor activities including swimming, surfing, waterfall hikes, fishing, stand up paddleboard, horseback riding and kayaking. For thrill junkies, there are zip lines, bungie jumping and off-road jungle excursions including the world’s longest extension bridge. Looking for something more mellow? A trip to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens should provide you with all the serenity you crave.
The sound of the waves and the ocean breeze can be very calming, providing a peaceful environment for relaxation and stress relief. Being close to nature and the outdoors can also improve mental health and reduce stress. So, wiggle your toes into the sand and feel the grounding energy of the earth.
Living by the beach offers stunning views of the ocean and surrounding landscape, which can be very aesthetically pleasing and good for the soul. Take a walk through the vibrant downtown Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, a hike into the jungle or a water taxi to the beaches of the South Shore, accessible only by water.
Community beachfront communities often have a strong sense of community, with many opportunities to socialize and meet new people. This can be especially important for retirees or those who may feel isolated in other living situations.
Living near the ocean can offer health benefits such as “jungle bathing”, exposure to natural light, and increased opportunities for physical activity. Just a brisk walk in the Romantic Zone or along the famous Malecon can help you burn off the amazing meals you will eat and get your daily vitamin D dose!
Living on the beach can feel like being on vacation every day, providing a relaxed and carefree lifestyle. Just remember, you’re a resident not a tourist so margaritas everyday can get you into trouble!
