WELCOME TO SAN PANCHO
THE CULTURAL CAPITAL OF RIVIERA NAYARIT
Located just 45 min north from the Puerto Vallarta international airport, San Pancho, as San Francisco Mexico is lovingly called, is considered the “cultural capital” of the state of Riviera Nayarit, thanks to the numerous initiatives carried out here to promote Mexican culture and education.
San Pancho beach welcomes anyone in search of relaxation, sun and a tropical backdrop. It is also a perfect spot for those with a more adventurous spirit that wish to defy the waves of the Pacific Ocean on their surfboard. You’ll find that San Pancho is one of the most remarkable Nayarit destinations.
The streets of San Pancho are filled with cultural centers, galleries, small restaurants, local bars that serve mezcal and microbrews, traditional and international bakeries, and boho-chic boutiques. Also worthy of praise is the La Patrona Polo Club, a symbol of San Pancho´s unique travel experiences. Here, fans of Polo can become members of the club, take private lessons, and participate in national and international polo tournaments. And for those who do not play polo, La Patrona also includes other facilities such as a high end Tierra Tropical Beach Club and Restaurant and already famous in the area – Sunday Brunch at it´s main restaurant. Culturally enrich your visit to the Riviera Nayarit with a stop in San Francisco Mexico. You will appreciate the incredible Huichol handicrafts, the art pieces on display in the galleries, the exclusivity of its polo club, and the tranquility of this traditional fishing village.
