Make Your Surfing Easy
Punta Mita is an oasis of white-sand beaches and turquoise waters boasting fabulous surfing, golf, snorkeling, scuba diving and world class fishing. Four Seasons Resort sits on a remarkable piece of real estate with commanding views and secluded beaches. The casitas are decored in the style of chic Mexican beach homes. Here, your morning surf followed by a round on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course should always be washed down with a sunset margarita or two.
Luxury Mexican Surfing
At Tropicsurf, we pride ourselves on the ‘art of luxury surfing’. Our resident Tropicsurf guides embody this philosophy in every lesson and guided excursion at the Four Seasons Punta Mita. Our guides represent decades of surf coaching development, which shortcuts your progression, and will share local knowledge to ensure you get on the best waves. We’ve got you covered; wax, sun protection, expert coaching and a world-class quiver.
More Time to Play at Punta Mita
With luxury surfing made easy, your days are freed up for optimal rest and relaxation. Afternoon siestas, beachside cocktails, or if you’ve still got the energy, make your way over to one of the two award winning Jack Nicklaus golf courses. You might even have time to master the ‘Tail Of The Whale’ hole, where the green sits out on it’s own island just off shore.
Something For Everyone at Four Seasons
The beauty of a trip to the Four Seasons Punta Mita is that the whole family is taken care of. Coupled with their unrivalled Four Seasons service, the resort also offers a wide range of activities that provide ample opportunities for fun. A Tropicsurf favourite is Stand Up Paddleboarding around the beautiful bays of the resort.
Fantastic Food For Fuel
There’s hunger, then there’s post-surf hunger. Luckily eating well is easy at Punta Mita, where seafood doesn’t get much fresher. Choose your fish from the daily locally caught selection, and the chefs will prepare a sumptuous feast that’ll keep your energy levels high enough to be surfing every day.
Waves at Punta Mita
Blessed with consistent swells in the small to medium range, and a regular supply of chest to head waves, Punta Mita offers a range of playful, reef waves, a classic right point that can be epic on its day, and options for endless explorations further along the coast. The house wave located just off the resort beach is ideal for beginners. Other breaks are conveniently accessible (from 5-20 minutes) using Tropicsurf’s regular, guided boat trips picking up from the Four Seasons beach daily.
El Anclote Leg Burners
People wait all year for the start of the winter surf season as this is when the right-hand point breaks, which break off the corner of land that curves into the Bahia de las Banderas, wake up. As October comes to an end the North Pacific enlivens and sends long range NW swells that light up these reefs. Perfectly suited for longboards, fishes and people wanting to get rides long enough to make their legs ache.
Perfect for Progression
There are not many places that offer the expert coaching of a Tropicsurf Guide, along with a steady progression of surf breaks that are perfect for development and improvement. At the Four Seasons Punta Mita, we’re fortunate to be able to raise the bar each time you need a new challenge. From the perfect learning ground of the house-wave, to the bowly walls of The Cove, Punta Mita offers the perfect conditions to test out your newly acquired techniques and skills.
The summer season of April to October sees south swells roll into all the different nooks and crannies of the Pacific, lighting up the warm waters of fun reef waves and bays. As this season subsides, epic north west swells take over and bring the long point breaks to life. It’s rare to see a day at Punta Mita where there isn’t something fun to ride.
There’s something special about sharing waves with your kids, whether it be their infectious energy or how their stoke levels fly through the roof. Year after year we see families return to surf these friendly waves together; that’s part of the beauty of surfing from Four Seasons Punta Mita. Family surf at the playful peak of La Lancha in the morning, quesadillas with your feet in the sand for lunch, and then maybe an afternoon golf round? Sign me up.
High Performance Potential
The Cove, known locally as La Bahia, has a punchy right-hander that maintains a wall that offers a perfect canvas to work on getting more radical. The left is shorter but provides equal opportunity to find a power pocket. Just a short boat trip from the Four Seasons Punta Mita, a sunrise session here is the perfect way to start the day.

The variety of exciting excursions offered from the Four Seasons Punta Mita is truly extensive. The resort's whale and dolphin watching tours are always a hit, and a visit to the secret beach of an offshore island is an absolute must. Here, you might even catch a sight of the rare Blue Footed Booby bird as you come up for air while snorkelling the waters of this protected nature reserve.
A Journey in Cuisine at Punta Mita
There’s no denying that the Mexican people take their food seriously as it’s rooted deep within their culture. Four Seasons Punta Mita strives to give you that local flavour, while adding twists of world-class ingredients, and imaginative chefs, to ensure that it’s a food fiesta that’ll keep any post-surf appetite happy. Fresh locally caught fish tacos, mango salsa and a cold local brew on the beach...that doesn’t sound bad at all.
At Punta Mita, the Four Seasons are passionate about sharing all aspects of Mexican culture with their guests. The in-house tequila expert guides intrepid tasters through the history and process of a myriad of styles. Cosy organised star gazing evenings are coupled with stories of how the ancient civilisations of Mexico interpreted the stars in their day-to-day life and mythology. It’s truly a well-rounded experience here.
In the style of chic Mexican beach homes, each guest room at Four Seasons offers simple, sumptuous décor and opens to a furnished terrace or balcony. Choose from a diverse range of room types and views - garden view, ocean view, ocean front or beachfront. Authentically styled casitas are great for couples, families enjoy the sun soaked suites.
Punta Mita Magic
There are plenty of reasons why so many people keep on returning to the Four Seasons Punta Mita. Whether it be waking up to views of migrating whales jumping out to sea, or the sounds of gentle pacific waves lapping at the shore, there is something truly magical about this place. It’s almost too easy to spend the days kicking back on your private balcony with a book, or pair of binoculars, in one hand and an ice-cold margarita in the other.
At Punta Mita, authentic Mexican architecture is complimented beautifully by local furniture and artwork, making you feel like part of the culture. Cosy enough to feel romantic, yet still providing plenty of space that only expands in the stunning views of Bahia de las Banderas. People return year after year for this ‘home away from home’ vibe.
For the ultimate in Mexican decadence choose from one of the many private residences. Beautifully nestled into the hillside, set right on the beach or perched on a seaside cliff choose from three, four or five bedroom villas, all of which offer breathtaking views of ocean ideal for picturesque sunsets.
Families, Four Seasons Style
This is a fabulous location for families with children. ‘Kid-friendly’ surf breaks are everywhere – including the Four Seasons, house-wave. Four Seasons Kids For All Seasons program is also renown for offering stimulating activities across a broad range of ages. Activities could include traditional Mexican crafts, making a tie-dye shirt or Hawaiian necklace, nature walks, beach crab hunts, sports and pool time. There’s a great outdoor playground and a big treehouse in the middle of the playroom.
Fun For All Ages
At Punta Mita, there’s no need to feel guilty about leaving the kids while you head out for a surf, round of golf or massage; they’re probably already off hanging out with the friends they’ve made through the Kids For All Seasons. This is a location where kids are socially stimulated too; doing laps of the lazy river, playing basketball and hanging out at the Four Seasons Punta Mita Gelato Shop with their merry band of new buddies.
Punta Mita's Safe Surfing
No transport is needed to get to our ‘house-wave’- just a few sandy steps to the waters edge - which means that parents can watch in style as their children are guided through their first steps of becoming a surfer. Starting in calm waters, and then leading in to some gentle rolling waves, our Tropicsurf Guides prioritise safety, fun and learning. There’s always a soundtrack of laughter and high-fives coming from the water.
With the Resort’s ideal location on the Pacific coast of Mexico, surf cruises aboard Four Seasons' luxury yacht is particularly practical. At the same time, apres surf diversions can be just as exciting. Guests can also enjoy fishing, snorkelling and diving from the yacht, and from December to March, there’s the opportunity to watch the annual humpback whale migration, a truly memorable experience.

Wonderful team at Tropicsurf
I just got back from spending a week at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita and surfed with the tropic instructors multiple times while I was there. First let me say what wonderful team you have down there, everyone was very nice and welcoming. In particular, I wanted to reach out on behalf of my entire group to say what an amazing instructor Pepe was. Although a few of us admittedly have no business on a surfboard, Pepe was able to get everyone up, even catching multiple waves. More importantly, he is super outgoing and speaks incredibly fluent English which made our experience that much more fun.
Thank you for the great experience and we will surely be back.Joel, via email
Great surf coaching
I'm writing to provide positive feedback on our surf instructor, Pepe. My 15 year old daughter and I had 5 days of lessons with Pepe in Punta Mita. Pepe was excellent!! He was able to teach, engage, and challenge my daughter in an appropriate way for a 15 year old, while also providing excellent teaching and technical training for her more analytical 50 year old father. Both of us improved significantly and had so much fun with Pepe. We highly recommend him for surfers of all skill levels and ages and thank Pepe, Gavin, and the rest of Tropicsurf team for an amazing vacation and surf experience. We will definitely be back for another Tropicsurf experience.Brett, via email
Tropicsurf guides are absolutely wonderful
The kids had an awesome time with Hannah and Brad yesterday!! They are absolutely wonderful. My younger son said he will only surf with Tropicsurf from now on because he has so much fun with them and they really talk to him.Siobhan, via email
A very happy future repeat customer
I’m sending this email to tell you that your operation here in Punta Mita is awesome. Every instructor I had, Pepe, Brad and Job, was fantastic. They were helpful, informative and just great people. And Hannah, who handled all the organizing, was the same. These are exactly the kind of people that will keep clients coming back and spreading the news. Give them all raises. They deserve it.Michael, via email
