Punta de Mita, La Cruz and back again

We're back to a week or two of real water play here in Banderas Bay.  After our trip home, we were eager to go exploring more of the greater bay, and actually don swim suits as our daily wear. 
Rob is getting very good at the SUP surfing.   We found a relaxing group of friends on the beaches of Punta de Mita (Mita for short) north of La Cruz.  Each day there would be radio talk on surf conditions and where to meet.  Several days a dinghy or two full of intrepid surfers, ages ranging from 10-65 would pile in with their boards, and head out to the 'happening' surf break.  Several hours later, usually after sunset, they would return, exhausted, but happy in their waveriding accomplishments.
I enjoyed exploring the small village of Mita, eyeing the dinner menus, possible sunset locations, and tiny tiendas as well as higher priced boutiques. Daily purchases would be fresh fruits and vegetables, but we enjoy dining out with friends each night.  With the nearby St Regis and Four Seasons, there is something for everyone.

This is where we have been surfing at Anclote Beach.  The conditions here are perfect for  beginners.  You can catch waves all day.
