Arguably the most coveted residential development in Punta Mita, the Ranchos Estates features just 20 ultra luxe residences, each sitting on their own stretch of private white sand beach. The Ranchos Estates is located on the southern side of the Punta Mita peninsula, overlooking the Banderas Bay, where it is not uncommon to see a humpback whale breaching in the water, or a pod of dolphins cruising by. In the distance are the Marietas Islands, teeming with natural beauty and diverse wildlife. To the west, the town of El Anclote is visible a few miles away, as is the Puerto Vallarta skyline in the far distance to the south west. Ranchos Estates sits on its own, without borders to any other developments, making it a very private, stunningly beautiful, oceanfront retreat for your Punta Mita vacation.
