Photographer Anna Petrow travels because "life is better spent in new places." Among her favorite destinations is Mexico's Punta Mita, a small village on a peninsula overlooking the turquoise waters of the Pacific. Her most recent #FathomTakeover will instantly transport you to the town's colorful streets and peaceful beaches.
PUNTA MITA, Mexico – Despite its incredible growth since my first visit twelve years ago, Punta Mita has maintained every ounce of its authenticity and charm. My latest trip followed the usual relaxing agenda: beach strolls, jalapeño margaritas, ambles through town, and of course, capturing life through photographs.
The beaches of Riviera Nayarit are quite varied. Because Punta Mita sits on the coast of a peninsula, you can find everything from beaches lined with fishing boats to pristine, empty coastlines perfect for sitting down and enjoying view.

Punta Mita's Old Town is marked by a change in the road from pavement to cobblestones. The homes are more spread out and colorful. It's a wonderful place to explore.
