What To Do In Punta Mita

Stroll around Punta de Mita Village and Marina

One of the best ways to get to know Punta Mita pueblo (town) is to just stroll around it. There are many cute boutiques, stores, cafes and corners to get to know and admire.

Start by strolling down Avenida las Redes where you’ll find the town’s best boutique stores and some great cafes. From here you can follow the oceanfront road to the marina to cool off in the refreshing sea breeze and check out the boats and local fishermen as well as the tiny ‘el faro’ or lighthouse.

Right next to the marina you’ll find the town’s main public beach, Playa Punta Mita where you can relax and get a drink right on the beach. You can also opt for surf lessons here too.

Behind the Punta Mita beach, there are lots of little streets that are full of local activity, delicious restaurants and even a market that’s on every Saturday down Calle Emiliano Zapata.

Relax on Punta Mita beach

Around Punta Mita, you’ll find a few main beaches where you can relax for the afternoon and rest.

In town, you’ll find nearby Playa Punta Mita and further away Playa Careyeros and El Anclote beaches which are also worth a visit.

On the Playa Punta de Mita, you can rent a deck chair and relax under the shade of an umbrella or simply spread out your beach towel on the sand to top up on Vitamin D.

Punta Mita’s public beach probably isn’t the best beach along the Riviera Nayarit but it does have extremely white, fine sand similar to what you might see in Tulum or Playa del Carmen.

Surfing at Playa La Lancha

Further south along the coast towards Puerto Vallarta you’ll find the lovely, little beach of Playa La Lancha, one of the best spots in the area of surfing.

Many locals come here to surf – easily the most popular of all water sports in the area – but word is getting out that this is one of the best beaches in the area to catch a wave. There isn’t much infrastructure here and there aren’t too many surf schools in this area either. To get there you’ll want to park right byWildMex Surf School where you can rent a board or even get a lesson and then hike from the road through the jungle to the beach.

If you’re an intermediate or more advanced surfer this is one of the best breaks in the area as the town’s main beach, Playa Punta Mita tends to get much smaller waves, shallow water and good low tide conditions perfect for beginners.

Shop along Avenida las Redes

Avenida las Redes is one of Punta Mita’s best shopping streets and having a wander down here is easily one of the best things to do in Punta Mita.

Here you’ll find a number of lovely boutiques selling mainly homeware and clothing, some of which is very unique and worth a look. My favourite boutiques are KM33 and Velia Sierra for clothing and Hanna Waxman Design and Concept Pt Store for beautiful homeware you can have shipped to your own place to add a little Mexican touch.
