It’s not uncommon to see fishermen’s nets set out on the beach alongside their little boats as the sun rises at La Penita, Mexico (also known as La Penita de Jaltemba). You’ll also see a large number of pelicans soaring in the sky and gently gliding over the water. La Penita, also known as La Penita de Jaltemba, is another beautiful fishing town in the Nayarit area in Mexico.
It is a natural retreat that houses a fascinating variety of sea life and picturesque scenery. The quaint fishing community of La Penita on the Riviera Nayarit is a welcoming holiday spot with all the amenities of a bigger town.
As the biggest town on Jaltemba Bay, just 40 miles outside Puerta Vallarta, La Penita offers a wonderful warm tropical climate from November to May, making it an ideal escape for those in colder areas across the continent.
If you are in La Penita, pay a visit to the Fishermen’s Statue, the Church and Plaza, Bull Ring, the Fishermen’s Market, and other notable landmarks.
La Penita’s beach offers calm and gentle waters unlike any other place in Nayarit. The long beach line is ideal for walking and enjoying the view day and night.
