- Type: Beaches
NileGuide Expert Says:
The beaches are very nice with a bit bigger waves for all you surfers and boogie boarders. You can even camp right on the beach for a nominal fee, where you get your own palapa area so you can put your hammock up and relax and enjoy the beach.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Make reservations if you want to see the Four Seasons (it's the only way to get on the property). But beware -- there is a dress code! No shorts, tank tops or flip flops and men must have close toed shoes). The food is worth dressing up for and the service is unsurpassed. You'll feel like royalty.
- Punta Mita, a once a remote, tiny, almost inaccessible fishing village perched on a 1,500-acre peninsula at the northern end of Banderas Bay, was the best kept secret on Mexico's Pacific coast. About 15 years ago, the secret leaked out and developers quickly discovered its more than nine miles of breathtakingly beautiful beaches, panoramic views, and ideal surf breaks. Add to this indescribable beauty average summer temperatures of 85° and 75° in winter, and you can understand why investors stood up and took notice. The new Punta Mita has built a solid reputation as one of the world's premier luxury destinations. Visitors can choose between high-end hotels, including the Four Seasons, St. Regis, and Rosewood, or a variety of posh vacation rentals. In spite of the dramatic changes and plans for future development, Punta Mita's developers are committed to low-density and environmentally friendly development. Each year a few more trendy retailers and restaurants join the fray of the chic Playa Anclote (sometimes called Restaurant Row).
