Traveling the world allows you to experience other cultures and see how other people live their daily lives, and when you vacation in Riviera Nayarit, you’ll be surrounded by Mexico cultures. While you’re here, embracing local traditions in Mexican culture and experiencing the most celebrated holidays will enrich your journey and give you unforgettable memories. Being a part of a holiday celebration or taking a local tour will show you what life is truly like in Mexico.

Head Out on Local Tours

Mexico cultures are diverse and unique across the country, and when you visit a new city, book tours that showcase the local culture. Food tours take you to where the locals eat, places where you’ll find authentic Mexican food. To immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Riviera Nayarit, book an eco tour for an adventurous Mexican experience, and a chocolate tour combines both delicious flavors and stunning scenery. With each of these tours, you’ll see more of Mexico tradition and life.

Visit Events and Festivals


The traditions in Mexican culture include both international holidays and uniquely Mexican celebrations. The most celebrated holidays in Mexico are Independence Day on September 16, Day of the Dead on November 1-2, and Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe on December 12 just before Christmas. Each of these holidays has their own Mexican culture traditions and practices. Even if you’re not visiting around a holiday celebration, the Riviera Nayarit calendar will be filled with festivals and events. From food and drink festivals to local farmers markets, each event shows you more of Mexico tradition.

Explore Small-Town Life

When you visit Mexico, don’t stay in one place. Take day trips to nearby towns to visit different Mexico cultures. The coast of Riviera Nayarit is dotted with surfing villages and coastal towns, and visiting Sayulita and San Pancho will make your mexican experience unforgettable. Take a surfing class, stroll through artisan boutiques, and dig into fish tacos on the beach. Head to Monkey Mountain for a vigorous hike and sweeping views of the ocean, or wander the cobblestone streets and boardwalk Malecon of Puerto Vallarta. Each of these cities offers you a new perspective on Mexican culture traditions.

Taste the Local Cuisine

Mexican Food Buffet: Margarita Cocktail, Enchiladas, Sauces

Of all the traditions in Mexican culture, nothing is more iconic than the country’s cuisine, and while most cities around the world have Mexican restaurants, there’s nothing like true authentic tacos, enchiladas, and mole prepared by local chefs. While you might be familiar with some of these dishes, complete your Mexican experience by branching out and trying new foods. In Riviera Nayarit, the local cuisine features plenty of seafood, like ceviche, grilled fish, and fresh octopus, and if you get to experience a holiday celebration, you’ll be treated to traditional foods like pozole and tamales.

Mexican culture traditions are diverse and vibrant, and traveling allows you to experience them for yourself. Whether you visit during the most celebrated holidays or book local tours, there’s always something new to discover when you immerse yourself in Mexico tradition.
