Experience the authenticity of a real Mexican town with a visit to San Francisco, or San Pancho, in Nayarit. The area has maintained its traditional, agricultural essence, but still offers plenty of exciting opportunities for visitors looking to get away from the usual Mexican tourist destinations – without having to venture too far off the beaten path.

A quaint pueblo situated along Nayarit’s Pacific coast, San Francisco boasts a broad stretch of beach filled with warm, golden sand – backed by some of the most lush jungle vegetation Mexico has to offer. With cobblestone streets and friendly locals, San Francisco is a perfect retreat where travelers can relax in the warm Mexican sun and enjoy a more traditional Mexican vacation.

Vacation rentals are a popular option for accommodation in San Francisco, but visitors can also find a hotel or hostel to suit their budget. The hostels here are quite busy, welcoming tourists from around the world to this small, quiet beach town. Beachfront villas are also available, giving visitors the opportunity to get a taste of life on the Pacific.

San Francisco’s stone-paved streets are home to a wide variety of restaurants, arts and crafts shops, galleries, and activity providers. Tours and excursions can be booked here, for more adventurous travelers who want to participate in watersports, rent bicycles or kayaks, or venture into the jungle to learn more about the local wildlife. Many of the larger resorts in the area offer golfing and spa services, as well.

Only an hour from the airport in Puerto Vallarta, San Francisco makes a great alternative for vacationers looking for a quiet hostel or hotel to spend their beach holiday. Taxis and shuttle buses are available to bring tourists from the airport to this picturesque, traditional pueblo to enjoy a few days (or weeks) soaking up the sun and experiencing the “real” Mexico.
