Punta Mita is a 1,500-acre (6.1 square kilometers) beachfront village located on the north end of Banderas Bay in the Mexican state of Nayarit, about 10 miles (16 km) north of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. There is evidence of prehistoric (pre contact) human settlement in Nayarit. On the Punta de Mita peninsula, a hilltop archaeological site known as Careyeros Hill has been dated to circa 800 AD. Punta Mita is surrounded on three sides by nine and a half miles of Pacific Ocean beaches and coves including Litibu Bay. Punta Mitas has several residential communities ranging from condominiums and townhomes to private, single-family villas. It is also home to five-star resorts such as the Four Seasons and St. Regis.
