Beat the heat… Beat it to the Beach

Hola Amigos!

I do not care where you are in the world, if you were born and raised in the Northern Hemisphere you will always equate July with summer.

This is the month you were meant to be by a body of water enjoying long, sunny days of laziness, water sports, beachcombing, suntans and tropical cocktails.

July was never a month to be locked inside with air conditioning, looking out at the sun through the office window and wishing you could smell the spray of the ocean. July is the month to BE by the ocean! Now is your opportunity. BOOK NOW for a last-minute summer getaway!

Visit our fabulous Punta Mita beaches

Here in the beautiful Riviera Nayarit, we have beaches galore all around us. We have beaches for everybody.

  • Beaches with every luxurious accoutrement you can think of – sunglass cleaning, cold towel service, face spritzing…
  • Busy beaches with fabulous water sports opportunities and great people-watching.
  • And hidden pristine beaches where you will not find a single footprint.

Pick a different beach for every day of your vacation. Discover them all – you’ll be absolutely delighted at what the Mexican Pacific Coast can offer you and your family in terms of the most diverse beach vacation.

As soon as you land, explore your beautiful new rental property and pack away your things.

Next, you’ll want to jump into a bathing suit and head straight for the beach. That first mad dash across the hot sand to fly (if you’re like me – probably belly first!) into the ocean. Ah, the sting of the salt on your face, the waves lapping around you – heaven! You made it! You’re here enjoying summer in Mexico! Yeah!

Punta Mita Pina Colada
Cool and refreshing, on the beach or anytime!

Quench your Thirst with a Cold Beach Drink

“This is life the way it’s meant to be enjoyed!” you say. “Hmmm, but something is missing…. What could it be? Of course! A super icy, tropical-tasting, smooth-as-can-be Pina Colada!” What beach vacation is even thinkable without the ubiquitous Pina made here with the freshest local ingredients?

Yes, Relax and Enjoy the Local Punta Mita Beaches

And if the beaches on hand aren’t enough for you, well, not a problem! The Punta Mita peninsula alone boasts 9 miles of golden, sandy beaches. I can suggest some alternative Litibu beaches you can explore to make your beach vacation complete.

Get Pampered at our Exclusive Beach Clubs

Here in Punta Mita, we have two wonderful beach clubs. They’re the perfect place to spend lazy, hazy summer days with the family. And, you do not have to stray far from your rental home.Punta Mita Surf Lessons

Enjoy the charming, family-friendly Residents’ Beach Club on Manzanillas Beach – a beach shared with guests of the Four Seasons Hotel. The younger crowd will love the kids’ pool and play area. Adults can head over to the wonderful gauzy, breezy beach cabanas for a relaxing massage or facial by the ocean. Or, you can opt for a meal or an “in the sand snack” from the club’s restaurant and bar which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Kapuri has a beach club for the exclusive use of renters with Premier Membership cards. The water here is quite shallow and generally provides safe swimming.

Our other exclusive destination, Punta Sayulita, offers guests staying within its gates a wonderful private beach club with pier, swim-up bar, water toys and a restaurant.

A Surfer’s Paradise

After a couple of days of lounging, you may want to hit the serious surf and make like a local. Guests come from around the globe to pit themselves against some of our surf breaks.

As you probably know about me by now, I am not exactly the surfer sort. Brooks Brothers doesn’t have a surfer look that fits my style, so I leave the wet stuff to Lisa and my kids. I do recommend you try it at least once. But before taking the plunge – read Lisa’s practical advice for newbie surfers.

If you’re ready to give it a try, you can book surf lessons through our concierge (

After all, when in Rome…

Enjoy your summer!
