As 2011 comes to the close, it is the ideal time to reflect on the accomplishments, challenges and the collection of sweet memories formed during the past year.
We hope time enjoyed in Punta Mita has been a part of these memories – and will be a part of your coming year.
Our community’s spirit and common bond grows stronger with each season, and we are thrilled that so many of our owners are choosing to spend more – and longer – periods of time here. Friendships have been forged and events in the community are popular coming together points. Whether it’s morning yoga or PowerRopes classes, weekly golf socials, or monthly movies under the stars on the driving range of Punta Mita’s golf course, there’s more than a little bit of magic each day enjoyed here.
If you are spending the holidays in Punta Mita, you’ll find there is an abundance of festivities to enjoy. Our resorts have planned a menu of creative dining experiences from beachfront barbeques, to elegant gourmet affairs. The Beach Club will be geared up to welcome our many guests with special kids activities, and the new Kupuri beach pool and watersports palapa will be open and operating. Golf, tennis, fitness trails, surfing, paddle-boarding, scuba and snorkeling are all easily enjoyed within the Punta Mita resort. There’s no better place to enjoy time with family and friends celebrating the festive season, than under the warm Punta Mita sunshine.
Discover why Punta Mita continues to attract new residents, and why many of our early purchasers are choosing to “upgrade” into larger homes or custom home sites for building their dream residence. Discover and enjoy the barefoot luxury lifestyle of Punta Mita.
DINE, Master Developer of Punta Mita, together with Punta Mita Properties International Real Estate, Club Punta Mita and the Punta Mita Master HOA, wishes each of you a blessed holiday season, in the warm company of your family and friends and in the spirit of joy and generosity which this festive time honors.

Chef Richard Sandoval adds his signature touch to Bahia oceanside restaurant
Chef Sandoval reinterprets coastal Latin cuisine in his newly crafted menu at the Four Seasons Resort’s oceanfront dining venue, Bahia Coastal Latin Grill, where he blends traditional Latino flavors with global ingredients. Start your meal with a variety of small plates, made for sampling and sharing. From the wood-burning grill, your fish or seafood entre is—literally—served ocean to table. Prime cuts of beef, pork or chicken are seasoned with vibrant Latin marinades. Signature sauces and spice blends accompany each dish, together with plentiful sides of local market produce.

At the Asian-influenced Aramara, Four Seasons will present special festive menus and selected a la carte choices on December 24 and 25, and a decadent Chef’s Tasting Menu on December 31.

The evening begins with a special sunset menu of local and organic foods at tables set up around the Nuna Pool, including raw bar and caviar selections; ceviche and tiraditos stations; salad bar; freshly-made sushi, sashimi and tataki with just-caught seafood from local fisherman from the costal region of Puerto Vallarta; a hot dogs and sliders station; grown-up “mac ‘n cheese” with shrimp, lobster and truffles; stir fry and grill stations; and of course a fabulous sweets corner.

Special Punta de Mita Foundation Message
On Saturday November 26, the Punta de Mita Foundation held its fifth fundraising Gala at the Haitia development located in the neighboring community of Litibu. Haitia was very generous in hosting and fully underwriting the event so that 100% of the proceeds would go directly to the Foundation.
The event was attended by many Punta Mita area residents, who enjoyed a presentation of the Foundation’s work and achievements by founding Board Member and Master of Ceremonies for the evening, Greg Stanton. Those present also enjoyed a play that was written and performed by area high school students, highlighting the impact that trash has on us and on the environment.
During his presentation, Greg Stanton gave special thanks to all the committees that now work within the foundation including:
In closing, Greg Stanton thanked all who have participated in the Foundation’s work, citing his words at the first Foundation event held four years ago when he stated:
“Tonight is the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of those who live in our surrounding communities. Thanks to those who have served on the Board, its committees and most of all the donors. Lives have been changed and the community has improved. With your continued support the Punta de Mita Foundation and its committees will continue to bring forward new projects that will continue to improve the quality of life for those that live in our surrounding communities”.
