Nice people, good food, but fairly standard fare. Wait staff tries a little too hard, which is no fault of their own, but perhaps a little training would help.

We've had lunch here several times. Menu, kitchen and service are excellent, as well as the location. Anclote is on an pebble beach, boats for Marietas Islands depart only a few steps away. During low season, staff at Anclote will take care of your belongings while you take the tour.

cute little place in Punta Mita. There is public access to the beach right next to Hotel Cinco. The break there is super gentle, it is dubbed "Mexican Malibu", but for it to happen, the swell has to be 3-5 ft at Punta Burros.

I described this area as the "Drag" or Main Street of the town. As you walked down the hill from where we stayed, we were approached by salespeople promoting the boat ride to the Marietta Islands. There are pharmacies and small boutique shops on the right side of the street. Along with N/Shore Realty. The shops on this side had... More

Nice beach, with several bars and restaurants, looking out on the beach. Surfing was ok, nice little wave, but watch out for the rocks!

We tried most of the restaurants in Punta de Mita during our stay. Unfortunately we waited till our second last day to try El Anclote. It was the best place we ate so went back our last day as well. Make this your first stop not your last. Food was excellent so was service. They are right on the water.... More
