Nestled inside one of Mexico’s most exclusive private beach communities, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is preparing to host the third annual installment of its Punta Mita Beach Festival. Consistently rated as one of Mexico’s top five luxury hotels, The St. Regis masterfully combines relaxation and rejuvenation, gourmet food and adventurous beach sports on this breathtaking, oceanside property.

This year’s Punta Mita Beach Festival pairs guests with world-renowned professionals, teaching the sports and activities they are passionate about. From surfing, diving, snorkeling and standup paddleboarding to volleyball or beach yoga, this destination event caters to enthusiasts from beginners to advanced. To cap off a full day on or in the Pacific, join other guests for a celebrity chef dinner on the sand paired with cocktails.

Round out your trip enjoying all this premiere resort has to offer. Arrive in time to enjoy St. Regis’ signature sunset Champagne Ritual while your personal butler unpacks your suitcase in your beautiful casita. Text or call your butler anytime to schedule a signature treatment at the immaculate, 10,000-square-foot Remède Spa; a lesson with a tennis pro; or a tee-time at one of the two Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship Golf Courses nearby.

Relax together by one of the two adult pools or splash with the kids at the family pool before choosing one of St. Regis’ five restaurants. Enjoy their famous catch of the day (captured off the shore of the resort and brought in with much fanfare each afternoon) or dinner under the stars at their signature restaurant, Carolina.

Only a short, three-hour flight from Los Angeles, let Punta Mita welcome you to your completely planned summer family vacation. This year’s Punta Mita Beach Festival runs July 9–12. So surf, paddleboard or snorkel your way down south for a coastal respite not to be missed.
