Exploring and Sailing Venice by Riva

Exploring and Sailing Venice by Riva by www.carlosmeliablog.comExploring and Sailing Venice by Riva |  Venice. Italy  |  If there is a perfect way to explore and discover Venice, is by having your own private riva. This is an experience I enjoy very much, and try to do as long as it is available (have done this in the past in Paris along the Seine, Bath, UK on NarrowboatsBangkok, Thailand along the Chao Praya River on luxury rice barges, in Varanasi for the Ganga Arti, Istanbul along the Bosphorus, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico to the Islas Marietas… among many others worldwide. It gives you a different perspective, and without a doubt the Riva is indeed unique and sophisticated experience. As you can see I am a big fan of boats and specially private ones.  Continue reading Exploring and Sailing Venice by Riva

Sailing onboard Four Seasons Yacht

Sailing onboard Four Seasons Yacht   |  Riviera Nayarit, Mexico  |  What an amazing way to close my week stay at the Four Seasons Punta Mita at Riviera Nayarit, Mexico that onboard the Four Seasons Yacht sailing along Bahia Banderas, all the way back again to the Marieta Islands, and then sunset dinner along Anclote Beach, back to the marina over a fabulous dinner by the Executive Chef of the Four Seasons Punta Mita. OH and the final touch, a school of Blottenose Dolphins following our yacht and jumping around like saying farewell, such a magical afternoon.

The Four Seasons Yacht is stunning. A luxurious 17-metre (55-foot) yacht for guests to charter privately on a daily basis. The spacious yacht features a living room and kitchen with dining table, a separate shaded relaxation area on the upper deck, and sunning areas on the bow, stern and rear upper deck. The ship also sports a Wave Runner for guests to ride when the yacht is anchored.

A private 10 guests group may charter the yacht for six hours during the day or for sunset. Each charter includes a catered assortment of snacks and drinks. Our private setting in Punta Mita – less than an hour from Puerto Vallarta – allows for an intimate journey that conveniently leaves from Marina La Cruz located 20 minutes from the Resort.

Charter options include snorkelling and diving along the pristine coast or cruises among the protected Marietta Islands, which boast a thriving bird and fish population; whale-watching during the months of December through March; and fishing in the bountiful waters of the Punta Mita area. Lounging on the yacht while soaking up the sun and breathtaking scenery is another popular option.

Without a doubt, the perfect way to close my visit to Punta Mita and Riviera Nayarit. Great new friends, Margaritas, MOET, food, music and the picture perfect sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. Hope you enjoy the photos, and next time you visit Four Seasons Punta Mita, have a try sailing the yacht, you will love it. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
