Punta de Mita is about 40 minutes from Puerta Vallarta airport. The resort is located on a quiet and secluded stretch of beach that is expansive and long with powdery white sand and decent size waves for surfing, also perfect for long walks. There are many places to go and things to do in the surrounding area to experience the local culture and enjoy the lush natural environment.
With loungers and private cabanas available, the outdoor WET pool is the place to soak up the hot sun, enjoy a craft cocktail or swim in the warm pool. The pool area is all about music and fun with a DJ playing tunes continuously throughout the day. Then there is the spacious spa retreat with expert massage therapists ready to help you relax and rejuvenate. If you feel the need to get some exercise, there is a fitness center on site to help you stay in shape and burn some extra calories. Conveniently, there are scooters and bikes available to help you get around the property. Then there is the "muy" cool main bar, the Living Room, that serves finger foods and plays a hot music beat all day.
The Spice Market main restaurant delivers Southeast Asian style cuisine, where a variety of small plates for sharing as well as main dishes are offered. The Venazu has food available all day with live cooking stations and a unique make-your-own-meal area and offers a buffet style breakfast every day with a variety of items to suit any tastes. The poolside restaurant, Wet Deck, offers fresh tacos, quesadillas, chips and salsa, and sandwiches. There is also the Chevicheria offering traditional ceviche and craft beers from an unusual setup - a 1950s Chevy. For an exclusive gastronomical experience for a small-size group, there is the MESA1 where you will have a personal chef create their culinary masterpieces through a seven-course tasting menu.
So, consider immersing yourself in the sensory experience that is the W Punta de Mita. If you want to travel here without the crowds, mid to late January is not as busy.
