La Huerta, Mexico



Cuixmala, the legendary private estate of Sir James Goldsmith, is set in lush vegetation on a 3 km. golden sand beach on the Mexican Pacific. This stunning estate of 25,000 acres of land, lagoons and beaches, was conceived as a private home for his family and friends. Today Cuixmala offers a unique experience whether it be a family vacation, an adventure holiday with a group of friends, or a romantic retreat for a couple.



Cuixmala is located one hour north of the Manzanillo International Airport and two and a half hours from Puerto Vallarta. Cuixmala has a private landing strip suitable for prop planes, and air charter is available from both Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo. Transfers by car are also available from both airports. Cuixmala is located 10 minutes from Careyes, 30 minutes from El Tamarindo, and 40 minutes from Las Alamandas.


The casitas are a cluster of charming small houses set within a lush tropical garden which surrounds a large pool terrace. Each of the very private one bedroom casitas has a spacious outdoor living and dining terrace and a cozy TV room. The large king bedrooms open to the terraces and the views beyond. The beautiful Cuixmala villas were designed to blend light, space and striking colors with panoramas of the lagoons, river and ocean. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens in a cocoon of unspoiled nature, these villas are an oasis of tranquility. Each villa is fully staffed with a cook and butler, providing the ultimate in personalized service.


Most of the food served at Cuixmala is produced by Cuixmala's own organic farm or by the family's El Jabali ranch in the Mexican Highlands. Whether it be the "in villa" dining provided at La Loma and the Villas by your personal cook or the restaurant dining at Casa Gomez, all the food at Cuixmala is made from the freshest and finest ingredients. Cuixmala also offers unique and memorable dining experiences from lunchtime picnics at Caleta Blanca to beach barbecues with bonfires on Playa Cuixmala.
