The rainy summer season lasts from June to October, when it can be very hot and humid. The best month to visit is November, when the surrounding countryside is verdant after the summer rains. Come between November and March to see nesting and hatching turtles, from December to March if you want to watch dolphins and whales, or in April to spot giant manta rays.

A fantastic family resort, complete with a Lazy River and fantastic kids club - this Four Seasons property offers a fantastic family getaway, in Mexico's relaxed Punta Mita. The resort is structured in a way to make the beach area as private as possible, offering guests a real opportunity to relax and unwind set against the wild Pacific Coast. The team here uphold the Four Seasons Brand impeccably, with everyone from bellboys to waiters all going above and beyond to meet the needs of guests. Whilst the rooms might lack some character, they are incredibly comfortable and polished up to the normal Four Seasons standards. As is expected - the dining is brilliant, with a fantastic range of options, that whilst may feel quite expensive - deliver great dishes in every outlet. Particular mention to Bahia for their incredible fresh seafood and beautifully thoughtout menu.
On a private peninsula 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, this 3,000-acre, 145-casita resort has become an escape for families who'd rather not lift a finger while on vacation. The usual Four Seasons–worthy service is especially impeccable here: Polite staffers suddenly appear beside your poolside or beach lounger bearing Evian spritzers and skewers of fresh fruit; your child's name is spelled out in colored bath sponges on the lip of your giant bathtub; and masseurs from the on-site Apuane spa make house calls—and beach calls—on request. If lounging at the shore grows tiresome, you can take a turn around the 18-hole, Nicklaus-designed golf course; play a few sets of tennis; or indulge in myriad water activities: diving, deep-sea fishing, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking (the last three are free of charge). New amenities are always on offer—among the latest are a 55-foot yacht for private charter, a lazy river pool with inner-tube rides around the family-oriented Oasis complex, and a 9,000-square-foot, five-bedroom Coral Suite designed by architect Diego Villaseñor. Top off a long day of pampering with a tequila-pairing menu at Aramara restaurant—es magnífico.
