The Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve is the first in Mexico to conserve tropical dry forest.  The reserve has a protected area of 131.42 square kilometers and is dominated by a hilly topography.  The reserve maintains a high species diversity, one of the largest concentrations of endemic species in the country.  The Reserve protects a combination of habitats, including 1200 species of plant, 270 of birds, 70 of mammals, 68 of reptiles, 19 of amphibians and many thousands of species of insects and other invertebrates.  Jaguars and turtles are among the unique sight experiences of the development.

The built environment compliments the natural by utilizing local materials and utilizing colors that reflect the weather and textures of the area. Rich patterns, detailed furniture and fixtures, and a lush landscape help sculpt the experience of the villas and casitas. You cannot help but admire the rich tradition of Mexico in its colorful tiles and superb use of elevation to maintain breeze and light penetrating the interior space.

    This looks like a villa in Casablanca, not Mexico. Because of it I found this project to be quite phony. And what's up with the zebras? Can someone explain to me what is the deal with that?

    It's halfway between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta. It's really like a zoo, there are not only Zebras (which are not endemic), also Caimanes, elands, gazelles and combines jungle with ocean. It's a really nice and huge place to stay.

    This is the fabled estate of the late Sir James Goldsmith. Phony? The main house, La Loma was inspired by St Sophia's mosque in Istanbul with Indian influences. It is nothing like a Zoo.. the is a natural reserve, there are now animals in captivity...The Zebras are of course not endemic to Mexico- they were rescued by Sir James and brought to Cuixmala. This is not a place for people accustomed to the Hilton in Cabo. It's a spectacular paradise with a wide range of price points for families. It has has a storied history, hosting Presidents, Kings, Captains of Industry and now has one of the most important turtle conservation projects in Mexico. Elevate your thinking as to what "vacation" can mean.

    Beautiful! a perfect example of Mexican architecture which is influenced by Spanish/Moroccan. I would love to see this place in person...whoever designed it had a perfect eye for color and dimension...the pool is fabulous and the beach looks wonderful.

    Brilliant! Absolutely beautiful! At work we are rewarded for a job well done frequently, at least twice a year, with trips abroad. Never been to Mexico so far. Lately, have been rather worried about its safety. However, based on this I just made a suggestion to our supervisor about taking the employees to Cuixmala next. He promised to get back to me on that. Let's see how it goes...
