After a short journey through the Mexican jungle, Careyes appears out of nowhere like a mirage or a vision: Perfectly paved cobblestone streets and immaculately manicured lush tropical gardens wind their way up to a kaleidoscope of colored private villas and ocean castles built into the cliffs that rise from the sea. In the bay below them, sits an emerald green island, lapped by azure waves, straight out of Neverland. Once you spot it, you know you have truly arrived and your adventure has officially begun.

Careyes is a private property comprised of Ocean Castles, Private Villas, Casitas and Bungalows. It is located in Costalegre on the Mexican Pacific beaches of the south coast of Jalisco, Mexico. Founded by Gian Franco Brignone in 1968, this continuously family owned and operated unique private beach resort combines the sensuality of the Mediterranean with a unique architecture and the hospitableness of Mexico. The community in Careyes is equally as important, beautiful and colorful as the place itself. Eccentric, elegant, educated, multi lingual and generally fascinating, they are all characters. Likewise, are the guests who are compelled to visit this most magical land. Careyes’ specific combination of natural beauty, architecture and sybaritic lifestyle, make it one of the world's most coveted destinations among the cognoscenti.
