Last August 12 and 13, Punta Mita, the most exclusive destination in Riviera Nayarit and the Mexican Pacific, hosted a weekend full of great activities, outstanding food and amazing company at the 5th Annual Punta Mita Beach Festival!

Hosted by Punta Mita Ocean Sports at the Kupuri Beach Club, this two day event was lived up to and surpassed all expectations with wonderful weather. Over 300 participants of all ages participated around all the different activities, enjoyed delicious gourmet options off the grill from our Guest Chefs and toast with amazing cocktails from our mixologists, all with an amazing energy creating an unforgettable weekend enjoying Punta Mita lifestyle at its best!

This event certainly embodies everything Punta Mita represents: unique moments for the family and friends. It was definitely an adventure weekend that brought together the best beach activities with all the natural beauty and adventure that Riviera Nayarit has to offer. It’s a compilation of the very best of our destination!

The Punta Mita Beach Festival 2017  showcased  the extensive recreational experiences available to Kupuri Beach Club residents and guests through their Ocean Sport program. The program included activities suitable for everyone, from exciting family adventures with an underwater treasure hunting, to inflatable beach soccer, and of course, exceptional cuisine offers from renowned Punta Mita chefs like Esther Sánchez and Jesus Duron of Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita and The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, who along with executive chef of Punta Mita Beach Clubs, Pato Persico served up a gourmet beach bbq experience. Adam Finer and his team at Punta Mita Ocean Sports did a fine job in setting the stage for a perfect event with wellness events including yoga, windsurfing, paddle boarding, derby races and much more.

The main focus of this event has always been to celebrate life in a fun and active way, and we would like to thank all the attendees for participating on all the different activities, either recreational or competitive, and also we would like to congratulate the winners of the different events, all of you, together with the organizers and staff, made of this Punta Mita Beach Festival, an memorable event.
