Star Gazing in Punta Mita


We suppose it all started with John Huston´s 1960´s film Night of the Iguana filmed in the then tiny fishing village of Puerto Vallarta with Ava Gardner and Richard Burton. In 2010 the Hollywood glitterati moved north to the latest celebrity hideaway in Mexico: Punta Mita. The perfect star gazing spot: from the five-star digs so fancy that the views have views, outstanding beaches and climate, the verdant jungles, and when needed, privacy.  This past holiday season Punta Mita was jam-packed with stars of all kinds starting with the meteor shower in early December and continuing with Rock Stars of all kinds from Classic Rock to Corporate Rock, the Hollywood Jet Set, Mexican politicos, and even a famous dog!  Here´s a rundown:

Roger Waters the founding member of Pink Floyd was on a worldwide The Wall tour that included Mexico City. He later flew to Puerto Vallarta and vacationed in Punta Mita with his wife, children and Seamus, the family dog for Christmas and New Year´s at one of the Ranchos estates. One of our local Las Palmas residents son hung out with him on the Punta Mita golf course, how cool is that?!

Another rock star, Laurence Geller, President, CEO, Director and Founder of Strategic Hotels & Resorts rung in the New Years Eve at the fantastic celebration on the beach at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita. We love that out of all the Four Seasons Hotels in the whole wide world he came to OURS.

Michael J. Fox, his wife and actress, Tracy Pollan and their daughter Aquinnah also celebrated the holidays in Punta Mita. Our first heads up was via Twitter when one of our fellow tweeters posted the following, ” Just had dinner next to Michael J. Fox in Punta Mita, Mexico”  Saturday night Familia Fox also shared a delicious dinner with Punta Mita residents at one of the Dine / Four Seasons Cantiles Villas overlooking our stunning coastline. We are pleased to know the J. Foxes were out and about in Punta Mita.

Casa Teresa Trattoria has also become a hot spot for celebrity dining. The minute we heard that Debra Messing was dining there (for the second time!) with her husband, Daniel Zelman we couldn´t resist and ran over for a sneak peek. Debra is absolutely natural and gorgeous on and off screen. Almost locals after frequently dining at Casa T, Christie Hefner and her husband Bill rang in the New Year. Nigel Lythgoe, one of the judges from So You Think You Can Dance and the executive producer of  American Idol had a New Years Day feast there.  We so hope that Nadia and Martin danced for him.

Diahann Carroll stayed at Casa de Mita Boutique Hotel with it´s secluded, simple elegance in Punta Negra and took a night off from their delicious food and ventured to Casa T´s with our dear friend Marc, owner of Casa de Mita and our local rock star.

Winston the dog of Men in Black fame has been frequently spotted throughout Punta de Mita this last month. Whether  under a large umbrella at Cielo for breakfast located on the rooftop at Hotel des Artistes, “dining” at Casa Teresa or beachfront during cocktail hour at El Coral he is a man about town and VERY well mannered.

To top it all off our last Mexican president, Vicente Fox is currently at the Four Seasons as one of our local residents just tipped us off!
