Punta Mita’s Casa Familia: A Winter Wonderland for the Holiday Season

For many (if not most) the perfect Holiday Season getaway has sun, sea, and sand, plus something extra special to take it from “good” to “incredible”. Villas in Journey Mexico only works in “incredible” which means we’ve got plenty of options for a seasonal getaway. But we think we’ve found a true winter wonderland at Casa Familia, a gorgeous six-bedroom luxury villa in Punta Mita.

Nestled within the revered Ranchos Estate, this gorgeous six-bedroom getaway enjoys the Pacific Coast’s most inviting weather – think highs of 82°F (28°C), gentle breezes, and clear skies. Sitting on the edge of the Bay of Banderas, you might even be able to spot the migratory humpback whales which arrive every year to give birth and mate.

Dreamy winter days are spent strolling from Casa Familia, down the stone steps at the back, and onto a golden sanded beach. From here you can build sand castles or head onto the sea with a boogie, surf, or stand-up paddle board. The sea is great for swimming and the soft sands perfect for afternoon siestas and romantic, barefoot walks.

For those who enjoy a bit of healthy competition, the villa’s basketball court or games room is the place to be. For most, however, a couple of lengths in the ocean-facing infinity pool might be the extent of the day’s exertions.

Relaxation is found all over – just what you need during the hectic winter months. Luxurious bedrooms promise nights of deep sleep, while days can be passed snoozing on the sun loungers or relaxing in the hot tub. A full team of staff means you’ve nothing to do but chill. Two full-time chefs take care of every meal while housekeepers, a concierge, and a house manager ensure the smooth running of the vacation.

Adventures out of the villas are extensive and exciting. Golf lovers can pick between two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, Punta Mita Bahia and Punta Mita Pacifico. Scuba diving and snorkeling can be found at Los Arcos and the Marietas Islands, while other sea adventures include sport fishing, sea kayaking, and sailing.
