The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is nestled in a captivating setting on one of the world's most alluring beaches on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Surrounded by white sands, pristine waters and lush tropical flora, the resort’s ambiance is as extraordinary as it is comfortable.
The area of Punta Mita (the name means "gateway to paradise") located at the Riviera Nayarit is a 1500-acre resort and residential community. It is home to discreet enclaves of private Villas and Residences, as well as two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses. Parallel with the latitude of Hawaii, Punta Mita is comfortable year round, surrounding guests with gentle sea breezes through balmy days and nights. The average summer temperature is 85 degrees; 75 degrees during winter months.
Guests exploring local seaside villages will find tradition blended with a touch of modernism. Fishing and agriculture are predominant, along with artisanal craftworks. One of the indigenous peoples of the area, the Huichol, are revered for their brilliantly colorful artwork and crafts, many of which are available in the local marketplaces. Shopping hours are Monday to Saturday from 11:00am - 9:00pm. Currency is the Mexican Peso even though US Dollars are widely accepted. Local Voltage is between 110 and 120 Volts AC.
Puerto Vallarta: Experience a variety of shops, restaurants and colorful colonial streets in this dynamic city, 50 minutes from Punta Mita.
San Sebastián (Huichol Villages): Nestled in the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains, San Sebastian's remote location and historic appeal have made it one of Mexico's last great getaways. Even though this little mountain enclave (elevation 4500 ft.) is not very far from Puerto Vallarta, this half-forgotten former mining town is a world away from typical resorts and ordinary tourist attractions.
The Marietas Islands: Situated at the northern end of Banderas Bay, the Marietas Islands provide a sanctuary for diverse marine and bird life. Whales, dolphins, giant manta ray, tropical fish, and indigenous birds such as blue-footed boobies and red-billed tropic birds form a unique and complex ecosystem in the shelter of these islands.
Other Activities Include: Whale watching, swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, hiking, canopy, jungle excursions, sailing.
