It is sophisticated, elegant and private. Your senses open up to a different dimension, the infinite turquoise ocean, the white sanded secluded beaches, and the marvelous sunsets.
Amenities such as golf, spa and a personal butler, willing to make your wildest dreams a reality are signature to Punta Mita, the luxuriest Mexican destination.
It is located 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta airport, nestled between jungle hills and the white sanded beaches bathed by the Pacific Turquoise Ocean. The weather is very gentle year-round, being my favorite season mid-November through April.
If you are looking for the best service, not on a budget, this is your destination.
After 15 years of experience planning weddings, I know the importance of THE venue. It does not only provide the setting and space for such a memorable occasion; among other things, the right wedding venue will set the tone and style, facilitate a good flow and help create a unique ambiance for everybody to enjoy and celebrate.
A venue with a unique character will not need as many decorations and details since it will stand out by itself and will likely benefit the overall budget. I have come to appreciate venues that offer unique architecture, wedding-friendly lay out, breathtaking views, amazing oceanfront location and of course, outstanding service.
Here below is a selection of properties which can offer such a special combination of features as your wedding venue around Punta de Mita area:

Marweddings’ initial tips for a scouting trip:
- If you are planning to come down to Punta Mita looking for a place to get married, contact a local wedding planner to make the different appointments and explore all your options. It is always a good idea to see all these venues accompanied by an expert that can understand your vision and knows the local resources and possibilities.
- In high season, we recommend doing a scouting trip early week, Monday through Wednesday, as all these houses may be occupied closer to the weekend and hard to look at calmly.
- When planning your trip you should know: tentative wedding date, approximate number of attendees, target budget and your guests’ special needs.
- To make the best use of your trip, we recommend you consider the below topics in your agenda :
A. Start working on the scouting trip agenda at least with two weeks anticipation
B. See options for guest accommodations and family accommodations
C. Do a couple of food tastings for rehearsal and wedding day
D. Visit different venue options for rehearsal dinner
