The Riviera Nayarit Hosted The IX Pacific Alliance Summit

The Riviera Nayarit’s St. Regis Punta Mita Resort and Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita welcomed the IX Pacific Alliance Summit on June 19-20  uniting the countries of Colombia, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica and Mexico.

The president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, invited presidents Juan Manuel Santos, from Colombia; Michelle Bachelet, from Chile; Ollanta Humala, from Peru; and Laura Chinchilla, from Costa Rica.

The meeting united over 500 dignitaries and leaders from the political and economic spheres of these countries, as well as 150 members of the international media.

The Pacific Alliance is a multilateral mechanism that seeks the integration of this region of North and South America via the free movement of goods, services, capital and people.

The two hosting hotels are categorized as Five-Diamond properties, the highest ranking offered by the AAA. Since their inauguration both hotels have received awards and recognitions in different categories from publications such as Condé Nast Traveler, Travel & Leisure and TripAdvisor, among others.

Punta Mita is one of the top destinations in the Riviera Nayarit and was recently included into the top five destinations targeted by the Mexico Tourism Board for promotion at an international level.

This exclusive development located on the Riviera Nayarit’s so-called Glamour Peninsula has become the youngest destination with the brightest future within Mexico’s ample tourism offerings.

Since this summit the Riviera Nayarit continues to position itself as the host destination for important events on an international level. One other example is the 2nd Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons undertaken by the United Nations Organization, which took place during the month of February in the destination and included the participation of over 143 countries.
