Surfing in San Blas




The area is also noted for its surfing, and many beach activities for the whole family.

San Blas Beach
The word is that this area has remained virtually undeveloped by the larger hotels and condominiums that are more prevalent along the Riviera Nayarit coastline due to the pesky jejeenes or sand flies, more commonly referred to as no-see-ums.


The VTours crew has spent a good deal of time in San Blas and has never experienced these bothersome little creatures. They usually show up in the mornings and late afternoon and are not present if there is a breeze. Do not allow this hear say to keep you from visiting San Blas, it is well worth the trip!

San Blas is the  northernmost point of a stretch of the State of Nayarit coastline called the "Riviera Nayarita". Riveria Nayarit extends south past the towns of Chacala, Los Ayala, Punta de Mita and Nuevo Vallarta to end at the Río Ameca, just near the border of Jalisco and just north of Puerto Vallarta.

San Blas Tourist Information and Images

You can drive or stroll through the neighborhoods of San Blas which still maintains an ambience of a small Mexican seaside town.





The town square, typical of any Mexican plaza with the main church on one side and the municipal building on the other,  is artfully decorated with colorful blossoming trees and bushes.

The protected inlets are a safe place to lay back on lounge the day away on your sailboat.

The mocha colored sandy beaches are good for surfing while still safe enough for the youngest of swimmers and seaside frolickers.

Along the San Blas shoreline you will find open aired palapa style restaurants, serving up authentic Mexican meals accompanied by cold cervazas and lucious margaritas. 

You can find  places to rent beach toys, surf boards and engage in other water activities. Or you can rent rent horses by the half hour or longer for yourself or the entire family.

There are multiple accommodations for your stay in San Blas, including Palapas along the beach, but so far the area only hosts one or two, of what could be perceived as a luxury hotel.

San Blas is not Puerto Vallarta! It is far  more relaxed and easy going. A place where you can blend with the locals and have a wonderful time.

Puerto San Blas Old Fort

High upon a hillside upon your entry to San Blas and to the left are the ruins of the old fort and church of Puerto San Blas. A wonderful afternoon outing.
