There’s no doubt the Riviera Nayarit has positioned itself over the past ten years as a destination that offers luxury, natural scenery and privacy—three elements that celebrities covet when they’re ready for some R&R and that can be found at their very best in Punta Mita, the Glamour Peninsula of the Riviera Nayarit.
Before we start, we’d like to give a special shout-out to the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, because Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kylie and Kendall have visited the destination so many times they are honorary nayaritas. Their favorite place is Casa Aramara in Punta Mita, owned by Joe Francis. But then we’d also have to mention Lady Gaga, Alessandra Ambrosio, Charlie Sheen or Jessica Simpson… Well, you get the idea!
