Punta Mita, Riviera Nayarit Mexico

A picturesque fishing village nestled on Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit, Punta Mita is an oasis of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters that boasts some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, surfing and golf in the world.

Just 45 minutes drive north of Puerto Vallarta. the latitude is the same as Hawaii, and although it’s January, the sun has baked away any chill you might have brought with you.

The newest jewel of Mexico: Punta Mita, where you’re staying at a private, gated and guarded estate large enough for your whole group and staffed by those same people who greeted you like a long lost relative the minute you stepped away from the smiling limo driver.
