100m to Punta Burro beach - an easy walk across a quiet cobble stone street. Nice surf break, beautiful sandy beach. 3x/week house keeping included.

About the Neighborhood

Punta del Burro is a private, gated community with 24/7 security. The community is quite quiet and is made up of about 42 homes. The beach is long, sandy and private. From our house it is about a 5 minute walk down the beach to the Burros break. The community is between La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and Punta Mita in Nayarit, MX and is about a 10 minute drive to either and about 30 - 45 minutes to Puerto Vallarta. Our location is an easy trek via car or hired boat to many surf breaks along the coast of the Bay of Banderas and to the North along the Pacific coast. In addition to Burros, some breaks that are in fairly close proximity are La Lancha, The Cove, Veneros, Anclote and El Faro among many others.

We recommend renting a car so if you want to go explore other breaks it is an easy option. With that said, the bus is quite reliable and stops at the end of our road.

Nearest break at 0.3 miles

Also known as Punta Burros. Burros is an excellent right point reef break. The main peak at Burros is a fast rippable right with a short left. It has enough power so that shortboarders can rip it, yet is forgiving enough to be tons of fun on a longboard too. Another peak closer to the beach will have good lefts and the occasional fast right. Burros is known to hold any size swell as well as be a wave magnet when other spots aren't breaking. This is a classic Punta Mita surf spot. Consistency is year-round with the best condition in summer.
