Nayarit

Regions and States

Nayarit crestThe state of Nayarit is part of the Central Pacific Region of Mexico, along with the states of Colima, Jalisco and Michoacán.

The capital city of the state of Nayarit is Tepic.

Tourism is important to the state’s economy. The coast of Nayarit varies from white sand beaches in the southern part of the state (which includes tourist towns such as Nueva Vallarta and Sayulita) to the virtually-uninhabited coastal marshes and swamps of the Marismas Nacionales. The town of San Blas was important during colonial times as a shipbuilding and provisioning port for voyages between Mexico and Asia.

The rugged eastern part of the state is home to the indigenous Huichol people, whose distinctive lifestyle, customs and handcrafts are exceptionally well documented on MexConnect – see our Huichol Resource Page.

Here are select articles and recipes related to Nayarit:

Yarn painting – images of a vanishing culture

The Huichol Indians, whose pre-Hispanic culture still survives in the remote Sierra Madres ranges, live a life woven of magic and sacred mythology. Believing themselves to be that part of creation which entertains the Gods, Huichols are sustained by their earthly representatives – corn, peyote and the deer – thus symbolically renewing their divinity daily.

Nayarit: San Blas, Tepic and in between

The fog of hallucination that occasionally seems to envelop Mexico hovers over San Blas most of the time. The amiable residents talk of their future as the next Puerto Vallarta while they wave towels to keep off the abundant mosquitoes, and inquire if you don’t find their town tranquilo while you yawn, stupefied from a night clamorous with the […]

Huichol art, a matter of survival II: Authenticity and commercialization
