With space and fresh air still top of mind, a trip to the Four Seasons Punta Mita could be just the vacation for the whole family this summer.
Located about an hour west of Puerto Vallarta, Punta Mita is a 1,500-acre private peninsula. Home to residential villas, two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, as well as the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, it is a hidden gem on Mexico’s West Coast. While the winter months are typically the high season, the rainy summer season can also be an amazing time to visit.
Why You Should Visit The Four Seasons Punta Mita
While many typically shy away from this region in the summer due to the expected rainfall, it is the savvy traveler’s time to visit. Unless there is a hurricane on the horizon, most rain fall occurs at night, providing many hot sunny beach days throughout the season. So, if you are looking for a beach destination for this summer, consider Punta Mita.
Accommodations at the Four Seasons Punta Mita
What makes the Four Seasons Punta Mita so special is the abundance of water views. With 177 casita-style guest rooms, 31 suites, and 32 residences and villas, each accommodation features either a private terrace or balcony giving guests the chance to enjoy the breathtaking views in privacy.
The stunning ocean views are accented by natural rocks and islands just feet from the sandy beaches. These create dramatic crashing waves, while still allowing for safe swimming spaces.
To really enjoy the view, opt for either a beachfront casita or an oceanfront casita. “Ocean” casitas will have an ocean view, but they are set further back in the property and may have semi-obstructed views of the water.
What to Do
There is really something for the whole family at this property. If you want to enjoy the sand and sun there are two large private beaches, multiple pools and even a lazy river where you can soak up the rays and cool down in the water until your heart is content. If you want to be active, there are dozens of fitness-focused activities you can sign up for including morning yoga on a cliff, a hiking tour of Careyeros’ Hill and kayaking tours.
And for the culinary guru, there is the “catch of the day” experience. Guests witness the fishermen bring in the days fish straight from the ocean and then the chef helps you choose a fish for lunch recommends the best preparation.
Dining at the Four Seasons Punta Mita
There is no shortage of amazing dining options at the Four Seasons Punta Mita. They bring in the local culture into everything that they do. Starting with the signature restaurant, Dos Catrinas, you can try the local cuisine at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And in the evenings, you can even go upstairs at the Dos Catrinas Bar and do a local mezcal or tequila tasting while enjoying the sunset.
On the beach enjoy a casual Mexican beach menu of ceviches, tacos and margaritas all served directly to your cabana or beach chair. And, if you want to mix things up a bit, head to Aramara for Asian fusion cuisine, that is created with lots of local produce, fish, and meat. There are several other dining concepts to try as well, including a feet-in-the-sand grill focused restaurant called Bahía by Richard Sandoval, and adult only pool restaurant called Tamai and several other snack and drink bars throughout the property.
Punta Mita is most easily accessible via the Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport in Puerto Vallarta. And the easiest way to get to the resort is via private transfer.
The Four Seasons Punta Mita is a place where families who have been cooped up for a year can stretch their legs, hop a surfboard, and gather at the dinner table. Try something new this summer and head to Mexico’s West Coast.
