San Blas

San Blas is both a municipality and municipal seat located on the Pacific coast of Mexico in the state of Nayarit. It is a port and a popular tourist destination. It is located about 100 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, and 40 miles west of the state capital Tepic.


San Blas boasts several attractive beaches, which have been kept safe from large-scale development by the area’s notorious population of jejenes or no-see-ums, that are mostly active at twilight. San Blas sits between two estuaries, the Pozo and El Rey, which are the main entries into a vast wetlands system. The many rivers that flow through the mangrove forests serve as the breeding grounds for fish.
