Riviera Nayarit's La Tovara National Park might not look like much to a first-timer. The entry sign is a little worse for wear, and the parking lot is perfunctory and mostly empty. But this is probably how the birders prefer it. Set some 100 miles north of Puerto Vallarta near the colonial town of San Blas, La Tovara is a premiere destination for bird-watching.

There are plenty of reasons for travelers to stay put in Puerto Vallarta, from raucous bars to shiny all-inclusive resorts overlooking the Pacific. But those in search of a quieter scene with more locals than tourists might consider driving north about 100 miles to San Blas, a Spanish colonial town in Riviera Nayarit that's rife with history and natural beauty.
