Costa Majahuas is the largest sub-region of Costalegre but perhaps the most desolate. It is quite flat with numerous large estuaries along the coastline that is made up of practically one long stretch of beach. It begins at Punta Las Penitas and continues southward to the San Nicholas River (also known as the Tomatlán River), where it borders the large estate/resort property of Las Alamandas. Along this coastline there is little to no development, except for the boutique hotel Hotelito Desconocido (which is currently shut down), located midway near La Cruz de Loreto.
At the southern end is the new development of Xala, developed by RLD of BK Partners, who also are developing a large project to the north of Puerto Vallarta called La Mandarina. Costalegre's new airport will be situated just behind the development. Xala is a large peninsula of land that has 8 km. of beach on its western border and a very large lagoon along its eastern length, 20 km. in total around its perimeter, totaling 1,268 hectares. The estuary actually meets the beach and is sometimes open to the open ocean. When developed Xala will consist of a luxury resort hotel (One & Only), perhaps a golf course, residences and condos with amenities such as spas, beach clubs, a hacienda, as well as an agricultural component. It will be based around a “Hacienda Lifestyle by the Sea” with the master plan designed to incorporate the social and cultural elements of the region including a town “Pueblo” and an incorporated fisherman's village.
Costa Majahuas Real Estate Options
The proposed One & Only resort hotel, to be called Santa María de Xala, will consist of seventy-five luxury villas and suites with private pools and the new One & Only Residences, when completed. There is nothing available in Costa Majahuas real estate market, however, at this particular time.
