MEXICO Party by Anthony Dias Blue Four Seasons Punta Mita This beautiful 26-acre resort has 173 rooms, many of which are suites. All the rooms are in single story casitas that face the shimmering waters of the Bahía de Banderas. Each casita is guarded by a locally-crafted ceramic jaguar. One of two dramatic Jack Niklaus– designed courses at Punta Mita. THE FIRST PUNTA MITA GOURMET & GOLF CLASSIC IS A RESOUNDING SUCCESS in Punta Mita M exican tourism has taken a hit lately. Reports of kidnapping and violent drug gangs have put a damper on the flow of U.S. visitors to our sunny neighbor to the south. But there are still parts of Mexico that are completely safe—and one of those places is Puerta Vallarta and, specifically, Punta Mita, 35 minutes to the north on the Riviera Nayarit. Punta Mita is a beautiful, verdant 1,500-acre gated peninsula that is home to two dramatic resorts: the Four Seasons and the St. Regis. There are 36 holes of Jack Nicklaus–designed golf on the property, featuring the famous par-three island hole where golfers have to hit their tee shot over the ocean. The St. Regis Resort Punta Mita is located on Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit. 78 / the tasting panel / july 201 1 PHOTO COURTESY OF FOUR SEASONS
