San Francisco, Mexico, is a small, quiet village in Nayarit where locals ride horses beside the crashing waves of the beach. Enormous banyan trees, situated around the village, provide shade to San Francisco's environmentally conscious population.
Examples of green living are evident in the various solar energy projects, windmills and ecological foundations based in San Francisco, which is also often called San Pancho. Further proof is the lovely eco-boutique hotel, Costa Azul Adventure Resort, which familiarizes guests with the local environment through its sea turtle program and numerous ecotours.
A good time to visit San Francisco is November-May, when you can watch or play polo at the town's Polo Club. While there, don't miss a stop at the main plaza with its murals that depict the town's history. You'll also enjoy the uncrowded beach there, though some sections are better suited to surfers than swimmers.
