Did you know that Punta Mita is situated along the same line of latitude as Hawaii? This is what accounts for its marvelous weather and conditions year round. However, that alone is not the only reason to book a Punta Mita holiday today. The option of an Isle Blue villa is definitely another reason to turn your vacationer’s attention to this area of Mexico, and yet even the ancient people of the region chose it for their retreats too!
Almost an island, it is situated on a peninsula jutting out into tranquil Pacific waters, and if the weather, idyllic locale, and Isle Blue villas were not enough to tempt you, consider these reasons:
The food in Punta Mita
If you are a fan of fresh, local seafood, this presents a huge reason to visit Punta Mita. The daily catch is brought into the village of Sayulita each day, and you can head to the taco stands there to sample some ridiculously fresh and delicious meals, or you can purchase fresh fish to prepare in your villa. Don’t feel like cooking? The restaurants of the area are often in the resorts or highly rated, and you can also speak to your concierge about an in-house chef coming to prepare some meals for you as well.
Punta Mita’s Beach Weather
Warm and dry throughout the year, even the “off” season has the most challenging weather in the evenings. The period that runs from June through September tends to feature warm and sunny days and a few evening thunderstorms that leave the air crisp and fresh for the morning sunrise.
Birding Native and Migratory Birds
Even those unfamiliar with the birds of the world cannot ignore the amazing diversity of the bird life here. It is due to the unique ecosystem of Punta Mita, and enormous numbers of native and migratory birds call it home.
The annual migration of Humpback whales makes for a particularly impressive experience, and you will also find that even a single boat trip can allow you to see them for yourself, or some of the thousands of dolphins that make the waters their year round home.
Punta Mita proper is charming and picturesque as it sites right on the beachfront. Enjoy a pier, a wonderful promenade, and direct access to some of the best restaurants on the peninsula. Just 20 minutes away is the active little fishing village of Sayulita, with a “surfer’s” culture in addition to a small town vibe. San Pancho is 30 minutes from Punta Mita,and here you enjoy the usual nightlife, bars and clubs, upscale waterfront dining, and more tourism oriented sites, but still with a more appealing, laid-back charm.
Golf in Punta Mita
One thing that must appeal to even the novice golfer is the golfing in Punta Mita. With two Jack Nicklaus designed courses, players literally dream their entire lives of such opportunities. One of the courses even runs right along the sea, offering golfers a chance to do some whale watching between holes.
If you want a balance of peaceful and idyllic settings and also urban excitement, it is another reason to choose Punta Mita. After all, the enormous tourism hub that is Puerto Vallarta is within easy reach of the area. You can hit the shops, the restaurants, and the nightlife without driving for hours, and be back in the peace of your Isle Blue villa for the sunrise.
There is much to see and do in Punta Mita apart from the things listed above, and if you wish to experience a truly refreshing escape, you will want to book today.
