Costa Careyes is a luxury development on the Pacific coast of Mexico (on the coast between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta) which reflects the whims of its 85-year-old Italian founder, Gian Franco Brignone, a onetime banker, who bought the land in 1968 and began inviting his jet-set friends soon after. Brignone has since built Careyes into a glamorous residential community and resort with accommodation comprised of Ocean Castles, Private Villas, Casitas and Bungalows.
The list of the activities is pretty long: paddle boarding, ocean kayaking in calm , snorkeling, scuba diving
fishing, surfing and coastal boat tours. And, land activites such as horseback riding, polo games, tennis, mountain biking and hiking, golf at El Tamarindo, spa services and yoga.
There’s also a contemporary art gallery, five restaurants, and 8 glorious miles of coastline.
This unique private beach resort combines the sensuality of the Mediterranean with a unique architecture and the hospitableness of Mexico.The community in Costa Careyes is equally as important, beautiful and colorful as the place itself. Eccentric, elegant, educated, multi lingual and generally fascinating, they are all characters.
