Our family has been visiting Punta Mita for the last 5 years and it never disappoints. We used to go with just one other family but were joined by 5 others this year--and I would bet they are all coming back.

We have always stayed at the St. Regis Punta Mita. With young kids, it is the perfect balance of pool, beach, and fun. The kids club is situated right next to the pool so the kids can seamlessly move between playing in the pool to arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, and countless other fun activities.
After a few days at the pool, the beach is a great change of pace. Tacos for lunch at Mita Mary cannot be beaten. Speaking of Mita Mary, the dinner rivals lunch as one of our favorites. They are great with big groups (yes all 6 families ate dinner together there multiple nights in a row) and the best part is the tables sit in the sand along the beach so the kids can run around and play while they wait for their food. The spicy Margaritas taste even better with the amazing view, and the surf and turf platters have something for everyone.
It is easy to relax and stay on the property, but we always take at least one night to visit the town and go shopping before dinner. Some of my favorite stores are Mita Mita and Calaverita de Mita. Si Senor for Dinner is an institution, but they recently re-branded as Mina--thankfully the food, vibes, and service haven't changed. 
When we need a break from all the chips and salsa, or we want to go to an adult dinner, we make our annual visit to Restaurant Sufi for some Mediterranean with a Mexican twist (Mediterranean). The views and food are the best.
Other things to do: a Catamaran day trip to go snorkeling or to see whales; Marietas Island if you like nature/adventure, and if you are up for a "toughish" swim you can visit the hidden beach; beach club hopping (if you have older kids El Surf Club is a must); and almost all the hotels offer kayaking, paddleboarding, and surfing.
For me, and probably many of you, sometimes we all just want a break from our over-scheduled hectic lives, and Punta Mita is truly the best escape for doing a whole lot of nothing.
