Beach at Punta Raza

To get to Punta Raza Nayarit Mexico, which is midway between Lo de Marcos and La Penita de Jaltemba, you must travel along a narrow path that weaves through the hills starting in the town of El Monteón.

Here begins the magic of one of most original Riviera Nayarit destinations. Along the two-kilometer (one-mile) hike to Punta Raza you will have the opportunity to appreciate exuberant vegetation of the region. Walk through giant palm trees that provide protective shade. Then enjoy a panoramic view of the nearby towns surrounding the beautiful beach at Punta Raza, with its exceptional turquoise-blue waters.

Future of Punta Raza Nayarit

Currently Punta Raza Nayarit is one of the remaining untouched beaches in Riviera Nayarit, offering near privacy for those who visit. The warm Pacific Ocean waters have a strong surf and undertow making the beach best for strolling through the sand and listening to the wave’s crash. From December through March you may even spot humpback whales swimming off shore.

Like other destinations on the west coast of Mexico, Punta Raza is awaiting interesting tourist development projects that have been planned. These development projects will provide visitors with all the necessary services for their dream vacation in Riviera Nayarit including resort hotels, condominiums, spa services, shops, and a golf course.

The newest addition is the luxurious One and Only Mandarina, just 10km from Punta Raza and due to open on November 1, 2020 so book early!

The future is very promising for this beautiful community on the Pacific Ocean. In addition, a marina and commercial village is planned to support all the new hotels and residences in Punta Raza Nayarit.
