Improve your bridge game while you take in the beauty
of Puerto Vallarta/Punta De Mita and all the services the resort has to offer.

This Bridge Academy's emphasis is on learning and practicing what you have learned with practice hands and supervised play. There will also be some competitive duplicate bridge games  with black points.

We start Sunday evening with a reception to meet  your group and ending on Friday at noon.

Pre and post nights are available so that you can extend your trip.

Bridge is a game for a lifetime. Come here to move your game up to a new level, meet new friends and above all have fun.

Perched on the ocean in the heart of one of Mexico’s most gorgeous
beaches, W Hotel Punta de Mita invites you to immerse yourself in a
truly remarkable hotel experience. Here colonial grandeur blends
seamlessly with the extraordinary artistry of the indigenous Huichol
peoples.

dining venues. Our group will be located in the Jungle rooms with a
private balcony or patio. Ocean view rooms may be available for a
higher rate.

 

This is a campus style property with guest rooms just a
