Up for a splurge? This long weekend is worth it—trust me. Friday, fly to Puerto Vallarta, drive 45 minutes north to the swanky resort area of Punta Mita, and check in to your luxe seaside digs (options include Hacienda de Mita villas and the new St. Regis; from $555; puntamita.com.mx). For dinner, stroll into El Anclote village for a toes-in-the-sand meal at Blue Water Grill (there's no phone; ask around) or try the fancier Café des Artistes del Mar (hoteldesartistesdelmar.com). The next morning, head to El Anclote's Accion Tropical surf shop (acciontropical.com.mx) and ask for local instructor Fox or Eduardo. They'll grab boards and whisk you and your better half, via small boat, to a gorgeous cove with breaks for both of your levels. Post-surfing, hightail it to the Punta Mita Residents' Beach Club, claim two chaises on the stunning beach, order shrimp tacos, and book side-by-side, open-air massages. Stick around for sunset. Sunday: Repeat.
