This authentic Mexican fishing town provides a variety of activities and attractions that cater to all kinds of personalities and interests. As a down-to-earth, unconventional tourist town, La Penita offers an eclectic mix of things to do in and around town for locals, tourists, and retirees who have chosen this friendly place as their preferred destination. One delicious reason to visit is the many varieties of fresh fish and seafood that are caught off shore each day.
Other reasons why visitors and residents come to La Penita is its location in the heart of the Riviera Nayarit. Surrounded by natural wonders such as golden sand beaches, the deep blue sea, tropical rainforests, rolling hillsides, exotic wildlife, and rare sea life, it also has everything that accompanies it, such as Humpback whale watching, dolphin sightings, sport fishing, sailing, snorkeling, diving, surfing, birding, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, four wheeling, zip lining, and even more.
Featuring such incredible natural inspiration, this midsize town is naturally focused on community enhancement and nature preservation. Nearly everyone living here is involved in or benefits from some kind of community program that serves to support this town and its neighboring communities on Bahia Jaltemba Bay. La Penita is the heart and soul of the area, offering business and tourism services for the immediate area.
With that much soul, there are plenty of bars and clubs – some with music – beckoning residents and tourists to unwind and laugh after a long day of work or play. For being a hardworking active town, there’s still plenty of fun to be had but not at those fancy nightclubs and trendy bars found in mega resort towns. This beach town has a character of its own with folksy nightlife at traditional Mexican bars and clubs.
In addition to the casual everyday activities are organized tours and attractions that travelers value, whether they prefer cultural attractions or adventure tours. This practical fishing town has more than enough character to keep nature travelers and adventurers happy.
