What is Punta Mita known for?

punta mita villa rental

Some people would say Punta Mita is a part of Puerto Vallarta, but that may be because they don’t know the area. Punta Mita is the peninsula where the Bay of Banderas meets the Pacific Ocean. This distinct location makes Punta Mita cooler, the beaches softer, and the ocean more diverse.

Many people even judge Punta Mita as a small village in the region. However, Punta Mita is so much more than a small village. It is a whole area that starts just outside of Cruz de Huanacaxtle and ends just before going to Sayulita. Some of the best resorts, beach clubs, and adventure clubs sit in this region because of its diversity.

The Luxurious Gated Community

People in the know choose the Punta Mita Rental home because this gated community is one of the finest in the bay area. The homes built in this community are ultra-gorgeous and luxurious. Internationally acclaimed architects built them, and designers and all homes sit on the peninsula surrounded by two championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus.
