Punta de Mita
Less than ten miles north of Puerto Vallarta, the community of Punta de Mita has become one of the most desirable destinations in the world for wealthy people seeking privacy and luxury. The Four Seasons Punta Mita is located here, as well as St. Regis Punta Mita, Casa Aramara and more than a dozen high-end housing developments. It’s also the location of Careyeros Hill, a prehistoric/archeological site, dating back to approximately 800 AD, long ago inhabited by humans.
The climate is quite favorable due to the position on the peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the ocean. The Marieta Islands, to the west of Puerto Vallarta, can be reached in 15 minutes by boat from Punta de Mita. Forbes Magazine has ranked this area Number Two in the world for its rating of famous private residences in the tropics. The well-staffed (35 person) luxury villa Casa Aramara is very popular among the celebrity set.
The name Punta de Mita, translates to Tip of Mita, indicating ownership of one named Mita. Though it’s hard to say if anyone named Mita still lives on the land, without doing in-depth research, we’ve found that locals object to the shortening to Punta Mita, just as they do with the abbreviated PV for those unable and unwilling to pronounce Puerto Vallarta. But they were given little choice and many now refer to it in the shortened version.
Though Punta de Mita has been somewhat invaded by the rich and famous, it’s also become the home of enterprises like a global conference including well known Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, patrons and sponsors. Their intention is to connect the thought leaders of Mexico, North and Latin America, in an attempt to initiate a stable structure for mentoring curriculum. They have named themselves MITA (Mita Institue and Tech Accelerator), in honor of the locale and their ambitions. MITA hosts an annual Tech Talks event in Punta de Mita. They embrace equality, animal rights and encourage the unification of leaders throughout the Americas in the sphere of the entrepreneurial network, using panel discussions and social media. Groups like this will change the way we are viewed globally.
Punta de Mita and the surrounding peninsula, from Puerto Vallarta to Sayulita, have a lot of offer in the way of sports and entertainment. Kite boarding and surfing are very popular on these shores and rental shops can help with lessons and equipment. The shoreline abounds with accessible beaches, even though there are some areas blocked off by the larger enterprises. Seaside restaurants in Punta de Mita, north and south, offer a variety of fare and prices. Bike rental shops in Bucerias and Sayulita are happy to help with bikes and the racks for your car so you can plan day trips. Horseback riding is available in Punta de Mita, as well, for those looking for a different pace.
Que es cómo es.
