A brief history about Punta Mita

A brief history about Punta Mita

The name Mita comes from the Aztec word “Mictlan”, which means “the portal for Paradise”. The evidence of civilization in Punta Mita and the surroundings date back to around 2000 BC and is believed that at least six great cultural groups existed in the area before the arrival of the Spaniards in the 16th Century. The first registered civilization in the area was the Cora, a small tribe that lived between 400 to 1200 AD, many of their descendants still live in the area. About 30 years ago, Punta Mita was a fishing village with its humble homes scattered throughout the area. Initially some millionaires discovered this place as ideal to reside privately in beach condominiums ensconced in the luxuriant vegetation. The world's most luxurious hotel chains followed suit, understanding the potential and built high-end resorts.
