Hacienda Alegre – Punta de Burro – Bahia de Banderas, Nayarit

The Location:
Hacienda Alegre sits along the shore of Mexico’s largest bay, in the best surfing and best beach area of the bay. It is 32 kilometers north of Puerto Vallarta, 10 minutes drive from Punta Mita, which is home of arguably the best Four Seasons Resort in the world.

The Experience;
Hacienda Alegre is a unique creature in the Bay of Banderas. The main house stands on a 25-foot cliff overlooking the beach. You enjoy sweeping and uninterrupted views east to Puerto Vallarta, with Matisse-style mountains providing a backdrop right around the horse-shoe-shaped bay. And to the west, you look along the rugged coastline towards the Pacific Ocean. Surfing is daily delight. The sunsets are totally magic! During the winter and early spring seasons, the bay is visited by whales and dolphins, and other interesting sea characters. Every day, summer or winter, the theatre of lines of pelicans gliding along the tips of the ocean waves never cease to amaze one! Hacienda Alegre is the best location on the Bay to experience all these beautiful happenings of nature, and Hacienda Alegre is the only residential property in Banderas Bay offering an expansive ocean frontage, tennis court, family-size swimming pool, sauna, games room, exercise room, and a spacious garden of tropical surprises – all in one place! It’s an ideal venue for large families, special business get-togethers and weddings!.
