Careyes is an oasis within Pacific Coast where the jungle meets the sea, with cobblestone streets, lush tropical gardens, and a kaleidoscope of colourful properties built on cliffs that rise from the sea. It is in this eden where one can connect with their inner voice, nature and with a vibrant community. Careyes unfolds from the imagination of the visionary artist and entrepreneur Gian Franco Brignone, who first visited this majestic place in 1968, when it was inaccessible due to its rivers, extensive jungles and lack of roads.

Careyes covers more than 20,000 acres, hosting a diverse community of characters that perfectly represents the destination, with natural beauty, architecture, and  symbiotic lifestyle, making it one of the most coveted places in the world. Not only is it a land of natural wonders, it is also a place of spirituality that provides a unique experience to those who visit it.

Located in the centre of the ecological reserve of Chamela-Cuixmala, Careyes has contributed to the preservation of more than 70 species of mammals, 270 species of birds, and more than 1,200 species of flora and fauna. It is with this dedication that they created the turtle release program, which rescues more than 2,000 turtles a year and has supported the release of 1.5 million since its inception in 1983.

Being “green” and sustainable has become especially important to Careyes in recent years. Cobblestone roads have been constructed by hand with rock and dirt rather than asphalt, and the villas maximize cross ventilation to lessen the use of air conditioning.  Outdoor lighting is also limited at night to conserve energy and avoid the light pollution that detracts from the stars and creates difficulties for turtles nesting on the pristine beaches of Careyes
