A Peaceful Fishing Village

Settled in the 1930s, the sleepy fishing town of Real del Mar sits quietly on a stretch of the Bahía de Banderas on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, surrounded by the golden sand beaches of Destiladeras, Punta de Mita, Careyeros and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Located on one of the largest bays in the world, Real del Mar enjoys warm weather year-round. A recently renovated marina allows worldly traffic. This paradise of sun, sand and sea offers a plethora of quaint, artsy shops and galleries, activities for the whole family and diverse dining options that range from refined international establishments to the most authentic, dressed-down tacos you'll ever taste.
