Punta de Mita Real Estate
If you’ve ever explored a map of Banderas Bay, chances are you’ve identified Punta de Mita, Nayarit as the uppermost tip of the bay. This dramatically pretty peninsula with absolutely exquisite beaches and sweeping views of both the bay and open water has always been a popular weekend escape from Puerto Vallarta. But since the Four Seasons and St. Regis resorts opened a few years ago in the adjacent master-planned resort and residential community called Punta Mita, it is also attracting the attention of jet setters and those seeking the good life—many of whom arrive in their own planes. Next to Punta Mita, two contiguous villages, Emiliano Zapata y El Coral del Risco (also known as El Anclote), serve as contrast, with their traditional Mexican feel.
Getting to Punta de Mita
Driving to El Anclote from Puerto Vallarta takes approximately an hour along Carr. 200 Norte, taking the Punta de Mita/La Cruz exit right after Bucerias. Public transportation is also available from Walmart across from the Puerto Vallarta Maritime Terminal.
Neighborhoods & Neighboring Regions
The largest town of any consequence south of Punta de Mita is La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Northbound, the road through Litibú provides easy access to Sayulita and San Pancho.
Landmarks, Sights & Activities
El Anclote in Punta de Mita is the best gateway in the bay to a host of aquatic activities that include surfing, fishing, diving, whale watching and paddle boarding. In fact, some of the best fishing in the bay can be enjoyed near El Anclote, and a number of vessels available to position you at the ideal spots for you to enjoy a good catch, and many of the local restaurants will eagerly grill it for you afterward!
Punta de Mita is ideal for whale watching during the winter months, and a number of providers offer tours that take you out toward the Marietas Islands, a protected refuge.
Punta de Mita, as a region, actually stretches down the North Shore coastline and northwards to Sayulita. But for our interests here, it is limited to the small towns of Emiliano Zapata and El Coral del Risco, and the development of Punta Mita. These three communities share the point of Punta de Mita, and are nearly completely surrounded by ocean.
