On Mexico’s Costa Alegre find El Careyes Club & Residences, an elegant accommodation option. Costa Careyes is a verdant swath of land and sea framed by golden beaches and dramatic cliffs topped with lavish, jewel-toned villas.
Nestled in a biosphere preserve that is home to iguanas, dolphins, and elusive jaguars, the eco resort-meets-eccentric-playground for the rich and famous was founded in the late 1960s by a former Italian banker. It also boasts world-class polo grounds, a turtle sanctuary, and every level of accommodation including casitas, bungalows, and Ocean Castles. Careyes’ resident hotel has been refashioned into the elegant, contemporary El Careyes Club & Residences, offering new digs from which to launch your hiking, horseback riding, golfing, or seafaring fun.
Guests can choose from suites and private villas. Admire the breathtaking views of the bay on the Pacific coastline surrounded by rocky outcrops. Interiors at El Careyes Club & Residences are simply sleek with white bedding and wood accents. Wide windows allow ample natural light in and the sparkling blue Pacific takes center stage. Smell the salty air from the loungers under the swaying palm trees.
Perched on the point of the Peninsula de las Estrellas overlooking Playa Careyitos, private villas are the ultimate in privacy and perfection. Surrounded by a 360-degree infinity pool means guests can cool off in a spectacular setting with unparalleled views of the white boats gliding in the vast Pacific. Feel like a king in the Ocean Castle, a villa that can only be reached via private funicular. A personal butler and chef are available to meet all of your needs.
Casitas at El Careyes Club & Residences are tucked into the tropical hills and add a major dose of color. Take a snooze to the sound of the gentle waves in the outdoor hammock.
Bright bushes of vibrant bougainvilleas greet guests as they make their way to the Playa Rosa Beach Club for an evening of Mediterranean and Mexican cuisine. Gentle pops of color and patterns are everywhere. Support local farmers and fishermen at the fuchsia-hued Pueblo25, an intimate space where you can watch the chef prepare fresh meals.
Wander the Plaza de los Caballeros to see the art pieces and shop in the boutique. Make a splash on the unspoiled beach. Eco-conscious travelers will enjoy helping in the Hawksbill turtle conservation efforts.
In the evenings, dance the night away just steps from the beach as Moroccan lanterns cast a delicate glow that are still no match for the shimmering moon above.
