Best golf courses: Banderas Bay, Mexico

Golf in Banderas Bayor Bahia de Banderas: Visitors to one of the largest bays in the world can enjoy breathtaking views from any of the hills that surround the big-name resort city of Puerto Vallarta. In Puerto Vallarta, we discovered the Four Seasons Punta Mita, whose Pacific course is one Mexico's finest championship layouts, featuring scenic ocean views, including those of whales in all their majesty during their seasonal migration.

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.
