Punta Mita is a gated peninsula enclave just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, which is served by flights from several U.S. cities. Noctiluca’s eighteen beachfront acres provide absolute privacy and are adjacent to the Four Seasons Punta Mita, whose recreational amenities are available to Noctiluca guests. Noctiluca offers expansive Pacific Ocean views of tidal surf, oceanfront flora and native wildlife including migrating whales, dolphins and giant manta rays.


Noctiluca’s guest palapas, great room, dining and theater/library palapas total 30,000 square feet. Their architectural style represents a successful marrying of Aztec and pre-Colombian designs and shapes, with soaring thatched roofs. Among the guest accommodations, which accommodate up to 16 guests, is a breathtaking Presidential palapa suite.
