San Blas is a warm place whose beautiful surroundings and pleasant climate have made it an ideal place for those in search of calm, delicious local food, sport fishing and waves that are perfect for surfing. Ecotourism enthusiasts can come into contact with nature and its fascinating animal life. San Blas is the main port city in the state of Nayarit and one of the most popular in the state, since it offers a variety of attractions such as beaches, estuaries, colonial architecture, history and nearby places of interest. Founded in the second half of the 18th century and during the colonial period, it was the starting point for several expeditions, the most important of which were those led by Fr. Junípero de la Serra and Father Kino. It was also a point of arrival for the Nao de China and was such an important trading place that the first customs house of New Spain was built there. During the War of Independence, it was the scene of bloody, decisive battles. The city’s main attractions include the former Maritime Customs House (only vestiges of which remain), the Port Captaincy, the Cerro de la Contaduría, containing traces of the Templo de San Basilio, dating from the 17th century, and the building of the Antigua Contaduría, the former accountant’s office, as well as its beautiful main beach.
The waters of San Blas are perfect for sport fishing, and the International Fishing Tournament, during which sailfish, marlin and dorado are caught, is held there every May.From San Blas, you can sail or kayak along canals lined with exuberant vegetation to the estuaries near La Tobara, El Conchal, El Pozo and Singaita. The port offers access to yachts and small boats
