Costa Careyes Real Estate

Stretching from Chamela down to the Cuitzmala river, Costa Careyes is even more rugged than the coastline of Chamela to the north, with larger, more protected coves and bays, and spectacular high rocky cliffs that plunge precipitously into the ocean below. It is home to two luxury resorts and not much else. But what resorts they are!

Careyes was founded in 1968 by Gan Franco Brignone and continues today under the guidance of his son Giorgio. It is built around the beachfront Costa Careyes hotel with 40 luxury homes and assorted bungalows perched on the cliffs surrounding it. The Brignone family, in building and owning a number of these homes themselves, created what has become known today as the “Careyes Style” of architecture; where the Mediterranean meets Mexico.

For years its lifestyle of the rich and famous have enjoyed in these homes where development has been slow, but purposeful. The result is one of the most coveted coastlines in the world. 

Careyes is not what you really would call a mega-development (although it certainly is large enough to be one). But it is significant because of the impact the Brignones have had in Costalegre in providing leadership in the region and assuring it remains low-density with high-value real estate, as well as their strong involvement and support of the regional communities.

Cuixmala, just 10 minutes south of Careyes, was the private estate of James Goldsmith which he built to entertain family and friends. It consists of over 1,000 hectares, set within 13,000 hectares of the Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve that is made up mostly of tropical forest, lagoons, spectacular beaches and all types of wildlife. Today it is owned and managed as a very high end luxury resort hotel by his family. Travel & Leisure article has an excellent article on Cuixmala and the Goldsmith's.

Goldsmith donated much of his land for the Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve, a foundation formed in cooperation with the National University of Mexico. It features 1,200 resident species of plants and trees; zebras, elands, and endangered jaguars; and the rare and venomous Mexican bearded lizard.
