Getting the Most Out of Punta de Mita for First-Time Travelers

Nestled into a 1,500-acre private peninsula located in the Riviera Nayarit, Punta de Mita is the ultimate luxury vacation destination. Situated just north of Puerto Vallarta, it is easy to reach this exclusive resort area. You will feel pampered to the highest degree when visiting this tropical oasis. Here is how to get the most out of Punta de Mita for first-time visitors.

Must-See Locations

You will certainly not be bored when visiting Punta de Mita. This privately-owned peninsula offers something for everyone. Golf enthusiasts will appreciate the two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. There is also a premium tennis center that is home to ten courts. All of this is in addition to the pristine coastline and warm ocean waters. Boasting 25 miles of stunning beaches, it is easy to find a variety of water sports options right at your fingertips. Many of the beaches are extremely secluded, giving you the chance to create your own personal oasis.

What to Eat

Regardless of your dining preferences, you will find something to satiate your appetite. There are more than a few great restaurants if you don’t feel like cooking on your own. It comes as no surprise that a resort area as luxurious as Punta de Mita boasts a wide range of high-end dining destinations. Popular places to consider adding to your dining itinerary include Tuna Blanca and Casa Teresa. For a more laid-back and authentic Mexican dining experience, consider stopping by Norma’s Tacos. A good breakfast spot to start your day is Naef Cafe, where you can enjoy a host of seasonal fruit such as plantains and mangoes.

Getting Around

Despite its seclusion from the rest of the world, it is relatively easy to reach Punta de Mita. The most common way to reach the resort area is to fly into Puerto Vallarta and travel 45-60 minute trip north. You can choose to drive a rental vehicle or take a public bus to reach the area. Having your own vehicle will give you freedom to explore the area in detail if that is important to you. If you plan to spend most of your time on-site at your Punta de Mita resort, arranging ground transportation may be a more economical and convenient option.

You will not regret choosing Punta de Mita for your next world adventure. The amazing weather, miles of beaches, and abundance of fun things to see and do will make you want to come back again and again.
