There are 65 villas in Careyes, Mexico

Careyes, Mexico

Careyes, located by the sea, with jungle and desert elements between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, was the vision of Italian entrepreneur, artist and banker Gian Franco Brignone, who first visited in 1968 from Turin, Italy. At the time, Careyes was virtually inaccessible due to rivers, thick jungle and lack of roads.

Careyes, spanning over 20,000 acres including the reserve, now features a creative international community with 65 gorgeous villas of vibrant colors designed by the world’s most imaginative architects.  Villas come fully staffed, with the exception of chefs.  Private meals and chef service is readily available.

Many of the villas feature large infinity pools by dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean below, grand palm thatched palapas, and a design merging the indoor and outdoor spaces with a natural cohesion to the land.

Villas range from 4-7 bedrooms.  https://www.careyes.com/accommodations/villas
