    Make sure that you have life jackets

    Travelling with children is really difficult because we have to make sure that they are safe at all times. When I went to Punta de Mita and I wanted to see the Blue Footed Boobies at the Islas Marietas, my daughter was scared to get into the boat because she does not know how to swim and scared with the big waves. But, with a little bit of coaxing, she came joined me. I could not leave her on the beach at the Punta De Mita. Nobody will babysit her there. So, my choice was to bring her.

    If you have children, make sure to put them on life vests. It is better to be safe than sorry. I also wore one since the waves were very big and strong.

  • construction Punta de Mita

    by tartansntulips Written Jan 15, 2008
    Noisy construction across from El Anclote Condos

    Just a heads up for those travellers wishing a quiet time on your rental deck. We are staying at the El Anclote condominiums building #1. The condo itself is everything the write-up said they just forgot or omitted to tell us about the construction between us and the ocean. It is excrutiatingly loud all day long, with chainsaws, sanders, generators, compressors, tile cutters going on all day. It has made relaxing on the deck impossible. The Punta de Mita Beach Club and Spa right on the beach has been in construction since summer 2006 and is not finished yet. We had 2 Sundays and Christmas day when they have not worked. The buildings further away are not so noisy as the one we are in.

  • Traffic "fines" Punta Mita to Puerto Vallarta

    by brilliantjeni Written Oct 25, 2006

    We stayed in one of La Punta Realty's villas after we heard they were the most luxe in the Puerto Vallarta area. They were fantastic and by far exceeded our expectations- however... we were pulled over a number of times by the local police and later found out we could have avoided this by not paying the initial "fine" requested by the officer. Don't pay fines or imaginary tickets! They will insist you have to, but if you insist you do not have the money on you, the only thing they can do is take your license to the local traffic authority building, where you can go the following day, pay $30 and get it back on site. Also- I noticed the previous poster's problem with the same company we used. They really were fantastic and bent over backwards for us, but they do ask that you tell them ahead of time if you have children or not as this can effect where you stay apparently- may want to double-check these details after booking just to be safe.

  • La Punta Realty - do not use!!

    by Mtuchscher1 Written Jan 19, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Please beware La Punta Realty is not a reputable realty or management company. We had the worst experienced of our collective lives. We rented a large ocean front condominium through La Punta Realty for the 2005/06 holidays. During our stay, we were robbed 3 times (video recorders, cameras, lap top computers) and on the second day of our vacation we were told we would have to relocate to another condominium because children were not allowed. It was amazing to us especially since our rental agreement noted our 2 teenage children and there respective ages. We were moved to an adjacent condominium which was under construction so we were greeted each morning at 7:00 am by saws and hammers. To make up for all the inconveniences La Punta Realty promised to refund $1,000 of our $2,500 rental fee. We never received the refund. Please never use La Punta Realty or stay at Punta Vista condominiums!!
