Fiestas Patrias (15 – 16 September)

The celebration of the Independence Day is one of our most treasured traditions, and the Riviera Nayarit makes the Grito, or yell, a very special occasion. The festivities begin on the evening of the 15th with the Grito de Independencia, a ceremony that’s replicated in nearly every plaza in nearly every coastal town, along with fireworks and fairs. The celebration continues on the 16th with a military and sports parade to commemorate another year of Mexico’s Independence.
