Punta de Mita, Riviera Nayarit
Pontoque covers approximately 85 acres (approx. 2100 linear feet of beach frontage) of jungle fringed swimmer friendly beach with sugar soft sand.
Ground cover varies and includes greenery with palms as well as low shrubbery and vines that are lush during the rainy season but dry out for approximately 4-5 months of the year.
Some creek beds run perpendicular to the highway, where hundreds of years of sediment have accumulated. Those areas have palms and greenery year round. Pontoque is one of the lushest beaches in the entire area, which may point to the existence of natural underground wells.
The climate on the north shore of the bay is dryer and less humid than that experienced in Puerto Vallarta and the south side of the bay. The North shore receives roughly 40 inches of rain per year from June through October and only very occasionally during the rest of the year. This however is enough to sustain the greenery in the drier areas until February or March.
