winter living series – beach getaways – careyes

This is the 3rd installment of the weeklong series on winter beach gateways and today’s is certainly one of my faves anywhere … the exclusive and rather reclusive Costa Careyes in Mexico’s Pacific coast.

Gian Franco Brignone, founder of the Costa Careyes, gave himself the task in the late 60s to create a private resort inspired by the Agha Khan’s Costa Esmeralda Sardegna Resort in Sardinia.  He would set this in the pristine and untouched spectacular natural setting of  the Mexican Pacific and give it a vibe that combined the sensuality of Italy’s Mediterranean with the colors and friendliness of Mexico.  What resulted was a non plus ultra private resort that offers an array of luxurious accommodations.  From a couple of staffed Estates with heliports perched  atop a mountain with extensive and hypnotic views of the Pacific (above) to small bungalows a few meters from the beach for the barefoot-chic (below), the resort caters to the international well-heeled whose only interest is to remain unpretentiously anonymous enveloped by some of the most spectacular settings, food and people in the world.
