El Anclote condo description
This condo is perfect for surfers wanting to access Punta Mita's fantastic surfing. It is full of surf art and overlooks the El Anclote surf break known as the 'Mexican Malibu'. It is located on the second floor of Building two, which is the quiet side of the complex and has stellar views of the surf. This is a perfect condo for a couple looking to get a relaxing vacation away from the throngs of tourists in Puerto Vallarta.
El Anclote's Beaches
The wind at El Anclote blows straight offshore every afternoon making for hot and sunny days on perfect white sand beaches. In fact, some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Mexico are found right here. By walking east (to the left looking at the ocean) you will pass beautiful beach after beautiful beach, each one more impressive than the last. If your vision is to find you own little cove to have solitude in, this is where you will find it. Add to the beaches the amazing surf found in the area and you have the basics for a wonderful vacation. If you surf and / or fish, you will not find a better vacation condo anywhere at this price.
El Anclte Restaurants
Once a sleepy little fishing village, El Anclote has grown into an international destination! The new malecon (boardwalk) along restaurant row has made the entire area a visitor's delight. Gourmet ocean front restaurants are complimented by themed boutique eateries and local restaurants that are to die for. You could easily spend two weeks in Punta Mita and not even scratch the surface of the wonderful restaurants that are located there. And, yes, it is entirely safe to dine at any of them without fear. Even the salads are completely safe. With patrons from the Four Seasons Hotel, the St. Regis and numerous boutique hotels and private residences, restaurant rown in El Anclote is reason enough to visit.
El Anclote Surfing and Fishing
The surf in the Punta Mita area is primarily Southern California type point and reef breaks with a couple of beach breaks thrown in. The best way to reach the breaks (other than the ones right in front of the condo) is by panga. Each of the surf shops in El Anclote offer panga transfers to whatever break you would like to surf. There are rights and lefts both in El Anclote and at the nearby breaks. While there isn't bone jarring wide open beach breaks, you will find several high quality point breaks that will keep you stoked.
The banks of El Banco and La Corbaina are considered the number two place in the world for giant Yellow Fin Tuna. the fishing in the area is off the charts for just about every variety you can imagine. In shore fishing, surf fishing and deep sea fishing is available daily from the panga right in Punta Mita and the best thing of all is that you save an hour each way from fishing out of Puerto Vallarta.

We stayed at El Anclote for a week at the end of May 2013 and we absolutely loved it! We were there for our ten year anniversary and for some surfing. The condo is very clean and well appointed. We had everything we needed to get started. The view from the patio is amazing! Punta Mita itself was a wonderful place to spend a week. We surfed six days in a row and visited many of the local oceanside restaurants. Our favourite meals were from Tacos Y Papas and a lovely Italian restaurant run by some Canadians. Overall, fantastic Holiday and we would absolutely go again!!!

The condo was great.When you enter, the first thing you see is the view of the ocean from the second story patio which was a perfect place to hang out and read or just tune out and enjoy the scenery. It was super clean and had everything we needed from a blender for my morning smoothies to a hair dryer for my wife. The location was great! It was situated right above the cobble stone and tile street where there is an amazing amount of restaurant choices at every price range. We also like the pool as area and hardly ever had anyone out there. October seems to be a slower time of the year. This location in Punta Mita is super quite with little car traffic and the gated condo complex makes for a safe location to park if you rent a car. It's only a few minutes walk down the hill to the beach where you can find just about anything to do from paddle boarding, surfing, fishing and even a boat ride to the local surf spots. I liked the location because it was so close to many local surf beaches. The ocean water was 87 degree's when we were there. You will have a great time here!

This was our second year and each year we fall more in love with this place. Both the condo and Punta de Mita. The condo is very well furnished, as we could move in tomorrow. The view is awesome, nothing better than waking up and having coffee on the balcony watching the early morning surfers or we have seen whales also from this spectacular view. There are some wonderful places to eat nearby like Cafe Como No, Rosa's, Margarita's, El Dorado. Just to name a few. There is an awesome bakery in Bucerius called "Pie In the Sky", The BEST chocolate cake we have ever tasted! There is a great farmer's market in La Cruz on Sunday's and is so worth the trip. Thanks to the owners Joanie & Tom for all the great help! We wish there were more owners like this to rent from.

Our Home Away from Home
This was our second year coming to Punta Mita and staying at El Anclote and renting this unit. We will be writing this same review years from now, only saying this is our "3rd, 4th, 5th 6th year" because Punta Mita has become our 'Home Away from Home'. This is truly a special place and the setting allows you to take a break from the external pressures of daily life on the mainland and just "be." For us "being" is either by the pool reading, swimming laps, surfing at the local "walk to" breaks" dining at the local restaurants in the town or just making a leisurely breakfast in the condo and overlooking the ocean and the town on the balcony. The community of owners and renters is always friendly and welcoming. We feel safe in Punta Mita and we would recommend renting this unit. The owners are a wealth of information about the area and have an on-site property manager also available if you have any questions. They thought of everything and we are truly grateful for the experience to come to Punta Mita and just relax and we hope you decide to come and experience it for yourselves.

Owner response: Leigh & Brian, Thank you so much for visiting us again this year! You are both a delight to have as neighbors and we cannot wait till you come back again next year. Punta Mita loves having you here as we do. Come back soon...and thank you for the wonderful review. Joanie & Tom and of course Zoe...
My friend and I both surf, and we stayed at the El Anclote condos in late November hoping to score surf at the break right in front of the condos. Unfortunately, it wasn't happening during our stay, which only gives me another reason to come back! And when I do, it will definitely be at this condo again. It was very clean, cute, comfortable and so convenient to everything in the town. The air conditioning was GREAT since it was super hot the entire time we were there. We also felt very secure knowing there was 24 hour security (not that the town was dangerous - far from it! we walked around at night feeling totally at ease, and everyone you see on the street or encounter anywhere is very friendly). The kitchen, though small, was well equipped and stocked. Having the videos in the living room came in handy when we both came down with a bad case of Montezuma's revenge and had to stay in all day one day. Loved the terra cotta floors, the shower, and of course, the BALCONY. The view literally took our breath away when we first arrived! There is a tiny resident gecko in the property, but he's completely harmless and will even eat any bugs that might be bothersome. Go to Accion Tropical for all your surf needs - if El Anclote is flat, there are breaks about a 5 minute panga ride away. La Lancha is a gentle, mushy wave that's perfect for longboards! And the water is so warm and beautiful. We both also really loved the town. it was small, sleepy and compact and we got to know a lot of people, especially Debo of Debo's Cafe - great breakfasts! also loved the Cheeseburger in Paradise:) Debo herself was a sweetheart and gave us lots of great tips. Other restaurants we liked: Margarita's (great view, with tables right on the jetty and good, strong drinks), Rocio Restaurant (best and most authentically Mexican oceanfront setting, good food) and Mariscos Tino's (AMAZING seafood spaghetti! and the sweet corn ice cream was so rich and delicious - though we felt the waiter was a bit terse). Renting a car is great and very convenient for going to the Mega Comercial in nearby Bucerias to stock up for your stay, and of course, do some sightseeing. The 25 minute drive to Sayulita from Punta de Mita is gorgeous. If you choose to skip the rental car, the tiendas in town do carry basic items like tortillas, milk, eggs, etc. I really, really loved our stay in Punta de Mita and especially loved the homey feel and convenience of this condo. Can't wait to come back!!

Excellent and beautiful place!!!
My husband and I went to this beutiful condo for a couple of days. Everything was absolutely great, the weather was perfect, sunny and warm, but what made the trip was the tranquility of the place, nobody bothers you and everyone respects privacy. We loved it so much we are definatly going back again, hopefull for more days this time!. The maid did a super job everything was so clean, the condo is so much BETTER than the pictures, once you are there you can see the BIG difference, so clean, so well decored, if you want to cook will find everything you need in the kitchen. Very nice beaches at Punta Mita and nearby and the food was super in all the resturants that we visited. The owners are very nice people, very polite and so kind! We will be back soon!! Thank you Joanie and Tom!

We had a great time in El Anclote. The condo was clean and well-maintained, the view spectacular, the on-site manager more than helpful and the complex staff super friendly. We have been to a lot of beaches throughout the world and Punta De Mita is at the top of the list. We sure will be back again and we'll bring the whole family next time.
