A Trio of Luminous Mexican Golf and Beach Resorts
Traveling to Mexico’s west coast was a welcomed respite for this winter-weary Vermonter, and a superb choice of destinations for anyone in search of an idyllic sun-drenched location, delicious culinary indulgence, exceptional hospitality and weather made for ultimate relaxation, rejuvenation and rapture.
My time at the St. Regis and Four Seasons five-star beach and spa resorts with two Jack Nicklaus Signature courses in Punta Mita, and at LaTranquila Resort with Greg Norman’s Litibu layout a few miles north, was the whole enchilada.
Punta Mita, in the Mexican state of Nayarit, occupies a lovely setting on Banderas Bay, 40 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Miles of white sand beach and ocean surround a gated 1,500-acre lush tropical peninsular property developed by DINE, Mexico’s premier real estate developer.
