How Did Punta Mita Become a Great Vacation Destination?

Chances are very good that the residents of Punta Mita, Mexico, have known all along that their rural fishing community is a little slice of paradise, and now the rest of the world is finding out just how wonderful this lovely village really is. People from all over the world choose Punta Mita as their favorite tropical hot spot, and that includes many of Hollywood’s elite such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Vince Vaughn, Orlando Bloom and Demi Moore. And both Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson chose to round out their special wedding ceremonies by honeymooning in Punta Mita. You don’t have to look very hard to see why the area is so popular, and there are many excellent reasons behind Punta Mita’s reputation as the perfect tropical vacation destination.

Perfection at Every Turn

Many people say that location is everything, and you couldn’t ask for any better than Punta Mita’s 1,500 feet of amazing beachfront right on gorgeous Banderas Bay. On three sides of the village, visitors will find over nine miles of pristine white-sand beaches that lead the way to the clear, beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean. It’s absolutely gorgeous all year long, and you can expect extraordinary weather conditions that are much like those of Hawaii. Temperatures stay at around 85 degrees in the summer months and 75 degrees in the winter months.

Endless Activities

Unlike other vacation destinations where you may have to work hard to find anything that is fun to do, Punta Mita offers an endless array of activities that may just make it difficult for you to do everything that you want to do in just one visit.

  • Fishing Excursions: Head out for some deep-sea fishing for the catch of a lifetime. Trophy sharks, marlins, tuna and sailfish have all been hauled in by visitors. You may also enjoy spear fishing, surf fishing and fly fishing.
  • Premier Golfing: Two extraordinary Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses are available to visitors. You can expect to play your 18-hole game along a stunning course that meanders alongside the Pacific Ocean.
  • Wonderful Dining Options: Choose one of the simple local restaurants that make fresh homemade foods daily that feature the local cuisine, and many of these allow you to bring in your fresh-caught fish for preparation.


  • You may also enjoy one of the fine-dining establishments for a special or romantic dinner.
  • Other Exciting Activities: Explore the clear ocean waters with snorkeling or scuba diving, or you could book a tour to swim with wild dolphins or see humpback whales migrating. You can take a hike up Careyeros Mountain to explore ancient ruins, take an exciting zipline ride through the jungle or dance the night away at a local hot spot.
