Hello San Pancho, folks on the Riviera Nayarit and beyond! We hope all of you are finding yourselves well, and we thank you for viewing and supporting our local website. We are getting a lot more rain this last week, as everything is flourishing, as the river is finally running to the ocean and the jungles are turning very green once again.  The rain is really helping to cool down the hot parts of the day.  One of the things I like about living on the Riviera Nayarit all year long is that the next morning after a storm it is another blue-bird day! Sunny with the Mexico Blue skies, and the amazing San Pancho sunsets.
Thanks for tuning in to, and many Blessings for your day!

Step out of your comfort zone . . . but not too far! 

I love the quote “life begins at the end of your comfort zone” by Neale Donald Walsch.  It’s so true! When you leave your comfort zone you’re opening yourself up to new challenges, learning and growth.  However, it’s also true that if you step too far outside of your comfort zone you’re setting yourself up for anxiety, stress and a date with all the sweet foods in your fridge.  It’s definitely worth it to spend some time exploring your comfort zone and your personal limits. Read on for some ways you can explore your zones.

A healthy way to step gently out of your comfort zone.
Starts TOMORROW, July 25th  
This is your last chance! Sign up here! 

Gently step outside of your comfort zone
It’s so easy to slip into a daily routine that is comfortable and safe.  But is this the best way to live your life? Can you recall the last time that you pushed yourself out of your comfort zone and did something that challenged you . . . or maybe even scared you a bit?
Stepping out of your comfort zone is often where the magic of life happens! 

Giving yourself a healthy challenge is a huge part of the nourishment equation.

But beware! If you step too far outside of your comfort zone you may find yourself in the “anxiety/stress” zone.   You don’t want to spend too much time in this zone. This is a place where stress levels are high and your health is at risk.

 It’s simple to divide the zones of your life into 3 parts:

 1) Your comfort zone.
2) Your learning/challenge zone.
3) Your anxiety/stress zone.

It’s worth it to consider these different zones in your life.  Click here to begin exploring your zones.

Whale Watching and Snorkeling Tours

I was visiting Los Compadres Resort on the hill overlooking La Peñita de Jaltemba, I was looking out at the Jaltemba Bay and  I saw a couple whales breaching the water out by the island. I decided it was time to get out on a boat and see them up close. I went out with Gil on the Chica Loca from Riviera Nayarit Adventures in Sayulita.  They launch their trimaran from the marina in La Cruz.

A Mexico vacation is considered as the top tourist destination in Latin America and currently the tenth place in the world. Areas such as the Riviera Nayarit are teeming with historical sites, rich culture, and exciting attractions that many people, even the locals, have come to enjoy and love. Although this country is renowned for its iconic monuments and dazzling white beaches, there is one thing that you must try especially when you happen to visit this colorful nation between the months of January and March. It is called whale watching.

Whale watching has become a celebrated tourist activity especially in the Mexico Pacific where these big cetacean mammals usually show themselves off shore, proudly spouting water from the blowhole above their heads while flapping their huge tails against the sea surface. Not too many people are fortunate enough to see real live whales in person and witnessing this kind of whale action can certainly lead you breathless and in awe.

Whale watching season usually starts on November and ends in April. However, January and February are the best months for you to get a glimpse of these species (particularly humpbacks and gray whales) in Banderas Bay and Matanchen Bay. If you want to have a more memorable experience by closely interacting with these gentle giants, then you might want to try whale watching in Jaltemba Bay. In here you will find shallow waters where gray mother whales take care of their calves. You can touch and see them eye-to-eye, thus giving you an amazing experience that you will never forget.

There are daily whale watching tours and overnight excursions that are readily available for you to choose from during these months. These tourist companies will not give you a guarantee for whale sightings, but you will have better chances (usually nine out of ten tours) when you visit the Mexico Pacific at the end of January to April.

There are some reminders that you need to watch out for as soon as you have decided to try whale watching at the sunny beaches of Mexico. There are several types of whale watching tours that is suitable to all kinds of tourists. If you are doing this with your small kids, you need to choose a day tour where you would spend less time in the water and more time on the ground. If you are a whale specialist, then interacting with the whales will be more suitable for you so you might want to select the kind of tour that enables you to get near them. Chica Locca Magical Tours out of Sayulita has a wonderful Tri-Hull Cateraman with soft comfortable pillows and pads that is great for adults and children alike. And,  they can get close to the whales! They include transportation, breakfast, lunch and all you can drink,  which makes for a great all inclusive day where you don’t need to worry about a thing!  Whale watching, snorkeling or a sunset cruise…so, what  are you waiting for? After all, you are on a Mexico vacation!
They also are great for private parties, and special celebrations as well.


Book a trip to Sayulita and take a Sayulita Whale Watching Tour in Banderas Bay.
