Zona Norte / Punta Mita

Zona Norte, or the North Zone, is the collective name for the towns and areas above Puerto Vallarta.

Our picks of hotels are all in Punta Mita, a small village filled with luxury resorts and eateries. They are well connected to the city via taxis or public transport whilst allowing you to take a breather from the hustle bustle of the gay city centre. You’ll be staying at the tip of the bay so get your camera ready for some great panoramic shots of this gem on the seafront.
