Casa de Mita

» Activities


Horseback riding is popular. A local caballero will guide you for a tour of the beaches and nearby villages. Be sure to visit the local turtle hatcheries. You will get a closer look when turtles are released from the beach (in season). We can arrange for a private boat and captain to take guests for a tour of the Marietta Islands or whale watching. Whales, from mid November to mid April, can be seen from the villa while enjoying breakfast around the pool, or by boat with where guests get a close-up, exhilarating look. The Marietta Islands are home to many rare bird species including the blue-footed booby. Each island has several picturesque beaches and caves and is home to breathtaking sea and avian life.

Guests of Casa De Mita have access to world class golf. There are several award winning golf courses in close proximity to choose from.

At Casa De Mita, we are dedicated to bringing you the best that Vallarta and Mexico have to offer. With that in mind, an air expedition is a great way visit historic cities, discover ancient archeological sites, interact with more indigenous cultures, and enjoy extraordinary scenic beauty. Charter a private plane to Huichol villages and monarch butterfly sanctuaries…

Surfing lessons and tours are offered. Take a tour of the world famous Porfidio tequila factory or swim with the dolphins (dolphins must be booked well in advance). Deep sea fishing is also very popular. From lobster to tuna. Catch your favorite dinner and we will grill it up for you.

Casa De Mita is a year round destination. In the summer, take a hike through the local villages and into the pristine jungles to natural hot springs where wild orchids are in bloom. Many arrangements an more information is available via

During the summer, tides are lower and snorkeling/diving is easy and unforgettable. Sea turtles and manta rays pass through schools of colorful fish and coral. Octopus, lobster, and moray eels are as curious about you as you are about them.

If its nightlife or shopping you prefer, we can arrange transportation service to Puerto Vallarta, the home of many of Mexico’s finest restaurants and exciting nightlife.

Of course a trip to the beach is not complete without some downtime. Take a walk down our secluded beach or simply lay by the pool with a good book.

Sometimes the biggest challenge is doing nothing at all… let us show you how.
