Moving further north, past Nuevo Vallarta, you start off in Bucerías and follow the edge of the Banderas Bay, past the highway exit in direction to Tepic, Nayarit, to the west, you’ll then get to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, a long stretch after that includes Destiladeras Beach and resorts like the Palladium until you arrive at Punta de Mita.

This map includes the hotels located from Bucerías all the way to Litibú, just north of Punta de Mita.
