Buying a Beachfront Property in Puerto Vallarta, Part VI: Playa el Anclote, Litibu, Punta Sayulita and Sayulita

In our final article on Buying Beachfront in Puerto Vallarta, we are going all the way to the northern-most tip of the Bay of Banderas. Soft tides, and luxury exemplify this part of the Bay.

Punta de Mita: Playa el Anclote
Playa Anclote is a perfect spot for spending the day—or the rest of your life, if you’re lucky! The beach is protected from some of the stronger ocean currents by a peninsula of land hugging the area. Here you can relax for hours at one of the many palapa style restaurants eating perfectly prepared seafood, sipping a drink and utterly and completely forgetting about your worries back home. The children have a gentle beach to swim in, which is always a plus for mom and dad.

Punta de Mita has several personalities. One is that of a sleepy fishing village, with easy and less expensive access to boat rental to take advantage of a day on the bay. The other is that of a super elegant and luxurious resort. This is where the rich and famous (or the rich and discreet) come to play and get away from it all. Fabulous condos and villas abound. And, we just heard that Bill Gates bought the Four Seasons Hotel and Resort out this way, to give you an idea of what to expect. Great golfing; exquisite architecture; and every amenity that you can imagine—it’s all here in Punta de Mita.

Heading north from Punta de Mita is the exclusive resort area of Litibu. Gorgeous golfing, perfect beaches, with some stronger tides, as you are now directly on the ocean and not protected by the Bay of Banderas, there’s a lot of surfing in the area. Also, some very eco-friendly property ownership options are available, which are nestled in the beautiful jungle. You can purchase your own lot at Rancho Litibu and build the house of your dreams.

Punta Sayulita and Sayulita
Punta Sayulita is up from Litibu and is located at the very point on the ocean that leads into the Bay of Sayulita. Another beautiful jungle hideaway, with some spectacular lots and development properties available for purchase and construction.

We can’t say anything about the town and beach at Sayulita that hasn’t already been said— a beautiful and totally unique spot on the Riviera Nayarit. Here you can surf, shop, eat, and flashback to 60’s. A little piece of Santa Cruz California tucked away on the west coast of Mexico. The properties here range from simple open-air casitas to luxury villas. Pretty much anything goes on this beach. A great spot for people- watching and for letting your freak flag fly!
