Riviera Nayarit’s Anniversary was held from December 15th to 17th at La Patrona Polo & Equestrian Club in San Francisco with a unique and unparalleled event: “Riviera Nayarit 10 years Polo Cup”.
10 years of achievements were celebrated on Riviera Nayarit’s Anniversary, “The Treasure of the Mexican Pacific”. The “Riviera Nayarit 10 years Polo Cup” was organized to honor this commemorative date.
The polo cup was held at La Patrona Polo & Equestrian Club, considered one of the most beautiful Polo clubs in the country. The Polo Club was built with a strong emphasis on sustainability, creating the ideal environment to enjoy the “Sport of Kings”. It also has a gastronomic center that celebrates the culinary and cultural traditions of San Pancho and its surroundings.
The Riviera Nayarit’s Anniversary Celebration began on Friday, December 15th, with a cocktail. Later that day, a polo exhibition and a Huichol ceremony were held, followed by the introduction of the participating teams.
On Saturday, December 16th, guests attended a Brunch at Hacienda San Pancho. Subsequently, the Polo matches and equestrian exhibitions were held. The day closed with an incredible After Party at the newly opened Beach Club of La Patrona.
However, the most exciting moment was on Sunday, during a close final match. The team Moranza – Hacienda San Pancho was victorious after a round of penalties carried out after a draw.
Los Cuentos – La Patrona team was led by Tomas Elliot, Equestrian Manager of La Patrona Polo & Equestrian Club. Tomas has more than 25 years practicing professional polo and mentioned that his team was focused and effective despite the bad weather conditions, which limited the deployment of the teams during the tournament.
Among the sponsors, Marival Residences Luxury Resort® proudly celebrates the Anniversary of this young destination, as well as promotes the practice of Polo, the “Sport of Kings”, in the region.
