From Tenacatita, the well-known city of Puerto Vallarta is approximately 95 miles (153 kilometers) to the north.
Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, can only ever give you a limited view into the broader rhythms and life-ways of a region. So schedule in some time to delve into Jalisco's other attractions. Cihuatlan, lays 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west, while Chamela lies 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast.
About 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southeast of Tenacatita is Manzanillo, a regional city where you can explore La Mantarraya, Playa Miramar and Playa San Pedrito. Playa La Audiencia and Playa Olas Altas are just a handful of the many other interesting attractions in Manzanillo.
If the weather isn't ideal, fear not, Jalisco is home to plenty of indoor craft workshops, history museums and art museums, that will keep culture vultures busy. For an outdoor cultural activity that everyone will like, take the time to check out the region's open-air markets.
If you're the kind of traveler who prefers to take the slow lane while holidaying, this region is great for beach combing and picnicking. If you are after something a little different from seeing the sights, why not try a local watersport? Fishing and snorkeling are available here.
Everything has to end, but be rest assured, when you're ready to say "Adiós", you'll still have plenty of memories and keepsakes to remember your time here.
