Punta de Mita is the Mexico you thought didn't exist any longer. Far away from the towns that cater to students on break and conventional tourists, it is a secluded paradise that offers miles of beaches, an awe-inspiring collection of mountain and ocean views, warm Mexican ambiance and sunsets that light the sky.
There are plenty of activities for families, who shouldn't miss the annual turtle release, whale-watching and the Marietas Islands' Bluefooted Boobie. You can also enjoy watersports such as surfing, snorkeling, diving and kitesurfing. Even with so much to do, it's the peninsula's quiet charm that keeps visitors coming back.
Formed thousands of years ago by volcanic activity, the Marietas Islands are a National Preserve from which humans are banned. Wildlife such as the Blue Footed Booby is allowed, as is viewing the island by boat -- a bird-watcher's dream.
Annual releases of sea turtles and their offspring draw visitors to the Riviera Nayarit area, including Punta de Mita. Sea turtle releases occur from July to December every year on beaches throughout the region and can be seen on your own or with a guide.
Punta de Mita offers world-class deep-sea fishing with a bounty of snapper, grouper, roosterfish and mahi mahi. Once you've reeled in the big one, ask a local restaurant to cook your catch for a true ocean-to-table experience.
Whale season in this area is typically December through March, when the humpback whales come south to give birth. Many adventure guides offer whale-watching tours that get you up close, and often you'll see mothers with their young.
Punta de Mita provides easy access to several beachside towns, as well as the larger city of Puerto Vallarta. Head to Sayulita to get a feel for Mexican surf culture, then over to San Blas to explore the mangrove swamps and crocodile reserve.
A remote fishing village in Banderas Bay, Yelapa is accessible only by boat; take a water taxi and spend the day on the golden sand. Try Raicilla (the local moonshine) and indulge in a piece of pie, made fresh daily and delivered to the beach.
Punta de Mita bathes visitors in warmth and sunshine year round, with frequent showers from June through October. Enjoy moderate temperatures that rarely drop below 60 degrees or rise above 85 degrees.
