The resort is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico mid-way between Puerto Vallarta and Punta Mita. Situated on Banderas Bay, this region – christened the Nayarit Riviera – is distinguished by the striking presence of jungle-clad mountains descending to the golden beaches of the ocean shore.
It is just five minutes from the new 400 slip Marina Riviera Nayarit and yacht club which has a number of restaurants and shops in addition to the nearby village La Cruz. The city of Bucerias is nearly as close which is filled with shops and lovely restaurants and modern supermarkets including Super Walmart and Mega Grocery store. It is nine miles south of both Punta Mita and Sayulita. Please note that the Resort map is a bit out of proportion due to it being two dimensional. The Sea Stars are built on a raise above the pools offering you commanding views of the bay.
