One of Mexico’s Best Kept Secrets: W Punta de Mita

Looking for an authentic Mexican vacation with all the trappings of a 5-star destination resort? Travel 40 minutes from Puerta Vallarta Airport to the culturally rich region of Riviera Nayarit. Located on one of the area’s most pristine and secluded beaches, you’ll find the incomparably hip W Punta de Mita.

The 119-room and luxury suite resort sprawls across acres of lush greenery, offering a jungle vibe with classic ocean views. Room décor is inspired by the area’s bohemian surf culture with unmistakably Mexican accents, surfboards, and imaginative murals. Recharge in bold, open-concept bathrooms, with deep soaking bathtubs and glass-enclosed showers. Signature W beds set the scene for a rejuvenating sleep.

The W escape pays homage to Punta de Mita’s profound cultural history and the extraordinary artistry of the indigenous Huichol peoples. These elements exist with a stylish sophistication, extending throughout the property. An outdoor runway made of more than 700,000 individual mosaic tiles with designs inspired by the Huichol extends from the point of arrival all the way out to the ocean, a focal point of the design.

W Punta de Mita boasts a handful of incredible dining options. Celebrate the sensuality of South Asian cuisine at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Spice Market, enjoy fresh seafood, hand-crafted cocktails, and light bites poolside or delivered directly to your beachfront cabana, or book the exclusive Mesa1 for a private outdoor chef’s dinner under the stars. Afterwards, indulge in a selection of tequilas and Mezcals at the Agave Lab.

W guests are challenged to explore the surrounding beach towns. Just 20 minutes away, Sayulita is a hip surfer’s village that some even call the “new Tulum,” but luckily, it still flies under-the-radar as one of Mexico’s best kept secrets. Known for its trendy boutiques, cocktail bars, authentic restaurants, great surfing, music festivals, and more, the colorful and charming ‘pueblo magico’ – towns recognized in Mexico for their historic and cultural significance – offers something for everyone in the family.

Back at W Punta de Mita, unwind at the gorgeous AWAY Spa edged with lush jungle, take a dip in one of the oceanfront swimming pools, try a surf lesson, learn to make ceviche, or simply lounge in your oceanfront suite, taking advantage of your private plunge pool and direct beach access. No matter how you define relaxation, W Punta de Mita is a truly safe, unforgettable escape. ¡Salud!
