Cuixmala, Mexico

Cuixmala, the former residence of eco-warrior Sir James Goldsmith, is located on a three-kilometre stretch of golden sand along Mexico’s Pacific Coast, and is now a magnificent property with lagoons rich with birdlife, beaches and herds of ebra, blackbuck and eland. Cuixmala means ‘resting place for the soul’, and it lives up to the name.

Casa Cuixmala is the centrepiece of the 11,110-hectare estate, with guests able to stay in the regal retreat, or in the bungalows, private villas and casitas around the property.

Ride horses on Playa Cuixmala, snorkel at Caleta Blanca beach, explore the grottos at Playa Escondida, or participate in Cuixmala’s Turtle Protection Programme – one of the most successful in the world.
