Idyllic Punta Mita, just 45 minutes from Puerta Vallarta, sits on 1,500 acres (607 hectares) overlooking Mexico’s Bay of Banderas. In this quiet and relaxing locale, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, México, is the perfect place to enjoy white-sand beaches and countless activities for the whole family.

Whale watching

Join a group tour in search of migrating humpback whales, November to March. Or charter the Four Seasons yacht for a private excursion, and add in a snorkelling stop at Marietas Island. You can also try swimming with dolphins in nearby Puerto Vallarta.

Water activities

Try snorkeling in the warm waters off the beach or down the coast. Glide by schools of colourful fish, dolphins, turtles and manta rays; and swim into caves and coves. The Resort’s Lazy River and the oceanfront Nuna Pool, an infinity-edge pool complete with a hot tub, offer opportunities for cooling off. Let the little ones play in the shallow splashing area of the pool, or build the perfect sand castle on the beach with complimentary toys provided by the Resort.

Star gazing

After dark, join the Resort’s cultural concierge, Enrique, for a star-gazing session. He’ll point out constellations and teach kids how to spot them for themselves.

Educational opportunities

Sign up for a family lesson and learn together. Practice Spanish, try stand-up paddle boarding, schedule a golf clinic or discover the history of chocolate. Budding naturalists can learn about the local ecosystem during a nature or beach walk. Ask the Concierge for suggestions tailored to your family’s interests.

Kids-only entertainment

The Resort’s Kids For All Seasons programme gives children an opportunity to run off energy and take part in creating Mexican-style art, collecting shells, playing on the Puerto Vallarta coast line and much more. Children under the age of five can join in on the fun when accompanied by an adult.

Delicious food

Find outstanding, kid-friendly cuisine without leaving the Resort, from traditional Mexican dishes at Ketsi to fresh-from-the ocean seafood at Aramara. Children’s menus include a variety of options, such as quesadillas and chicken fingers. For a date night, book a babysitter through the Resort, and dine at the relaxed oceanside grill Bahía by Richard Sandoval.

Room to spread out

The Resort’s airy, Mexican-style casita rooms – available beachfront, oceanfront, or with garden or ocean views – have plenty of space for families; while suites include private plunge pools and hammocks where families can relax and play. The Coral Suite even has its own private drive. For a large or multi-family vacation, the five-bedroom private residence villas provide ample space and the ideal home base.

Opportunities to relax

Take in the ocean breezes and turquoise-water views from the comfort of your patio. Sway the baby to sleep, or enjoy a restful afternoon nap in the outdoor hammock. If you can’t leave the room, you can still indulge in a Four Seasons Apuane Spa signature treatment, by arranging for a massage therapist to come to you.

If you do have time for an escape, synchronize mind, body and spirit with a holistic therapy, or enjoy the Punta Mita Massage, which uses tequila, sage oil and Mexican healing techniques to leave you feeling like new. There are also plenty of treatments specialised for men.
