El Banco Estates

“Luxury mansions adorning an oceanfront plateau.”

With only a handful of prime sea-front lots, El Banco is one of the most coveted private estates in the Punta de Mita area. Just a five-minute drive from Punta de Mita village, gourmet restaurants, boutique stores and world-class golf, the exclusive gated community commands a stunning ocean bluff and white sand beach.

Peace, tranquility and jaw-dropping sunsets abound while fully-staffed villas and immaculate estates tend to your every desire and passing whim. More like a luxury retreat than a gated development, the sounds of nature and a soft ocean breeze serenade at every turn. We dare you not to relax in this heavenly locale.

The community is the brain-child of Tim Koogle, Yahoo’s founding CEO, and his wife, Pam Scott, whose vision it was to create a high-end luxury village on this unique plot of land distinguished by striking rock formations and a beautiful beach. Its name, El Banco, refers to its topographical singularity, like a giant bench poised on the edge of the shore.

If you love surfing, golf, hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, bird-watching or total peace and quiet, this private community will be your heaven on earth.
