Los Veneros Resort in Punta de Mita is an Inspirato member favorite. The sprawling white sand beach, resort pools, and luxurious residences make it easy to understand why. I had the opportunity to spend a week there with friends and I had the time of my life. Although the resort is spectacular, it’s also a very relaxing getaway. If you’re looking for an adventure, here are my tips on the top activities in the area.
Whether you’re looking to fish, sail or just have a recreational day on the water, BIP Yacht Charters have you covered. My group rented a 42’ sailboat to take us to Las Marietas and we had an incredible time. On the way there we saw whales and dolphins and on our return trip, we enjoyed cold cervezas, fresh guacamole, and fishing. I even caught a Bonita that they cleaned for us to be served later as ceviche. They have a large fleet of boats ranging from small Super Pangas to a 68’ Catamaran and all the way up to a 120’ Benetti super yacht, all manned by a friendly and attentive crew.
Avoid the crowds and maximize your day with a customized itinerary.
Unless you are an experienced shortboard surfer, avoid the beach break right off of Los Veneros. If you’ve never surfed and want to learn, Punta de Mita and Sayulita are the perfect places. I would personally recommend Sayulita. The bohemian beach town has kept its Mexican flavor while supporting a healthy tourist population. The waves are mellow and the breaks are long, making it an ideal learning environment.
WildMex is a well-known outfitter but you can also just rent boards on the beach. If members in your group don’t want to surf, there are a ton of great cantinas, jewelry stores and local vendors to explore.
While staying at Villa Escondida, I was lucky enough to have Holly Bryan, our Experiential Travel Manager, as our neighbor. She absolutely raved about Rancho Mi Chaparrita’s canopy tour and wouldn’t be the first Inspirato employee to do so. With 13 cables and three suspension bridges covering a total distance of 1.25 miles and reaching heights of 410 feet above sea level, your adrenaline is sure to be pumping. One highlight is that the zip-line covers the length of three football fields. Holly said that as fun as the course was, it is the staff that makes the experience. They’re fun, engaged and fluent in English all while keeping your safety their primary priority.
With great weather year-round, there are always a host of activities to enjoy while vacationing in Punta de Mita. Ask your Personal Vacation Advisor what they recommend while planning your trip and your Destination Concierge will surely have some local insight into what’s seasonal.
