Punta Mita is an ultra-luxurious 1,500- acre resort and residential community. It lies on a private peninsula surrounded by white sand beaches, stately rocks, Pacific Ocean waters and lush tropical flora. Home to two 5-Diamond Rated Resorts; Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita and The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, tennis and fitness center, water activities, restaurants, spas and a broad array of real estate opportunities. The community of Punta Mita is one of North America’s most sophisticated and exciting developments. Framed by lush tropical forest and the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains overlooking the Marietas Islands, where elusive bluefooted Booby birds fly, and divers thrill to underwater caves and kaleidoscopic coral reefs. This is Punta Mita. An inviting seaside playground, a natural magnet for aquatic adventures.

The sparkling waters, pristine beaches, coral reef and occasionally rocky coast inspire a host of delightful experiences, above and below the surface: spearfishing, sea kayaking, whale watching, surfing, paddle boarding, sailing, diving, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, horseback riding and more.

The legendary Jack Nicklaus has designed two spectacular signature courses at Punta Mita that offer extraordinary ocean views and world-class play. Pacifico, with seven holes directly facing or playing alongside the Pacific Ocean, features spacious fairways and greens and the “tail of the whale”, the world’s only natural island golf green. Bahía, Nicklaus’ second championship course in Punta Mita, has five ocean view holes and provides a perfect complement to its sister course Pacifico by undulating fairways and greens protected by deep greenside bunkers
