  • Cuixmala is the coastal estate of Sir James Goldsmith. Part of a 25,000-acre nature reserve, this is a wonderful place for a family eco-adventure. Surrounded by a jungle and private beaches, you will find crocodiles and turtles, and even open land with zebras, gazelles, and antelope. Brightly colored guest accommodations featuring Oaxacan fabrics and furniture crafted by Mexican artisans include one to two bedroom casitas and fully staffed (cook and butler) three to eleven bedroom villas. All villa units have private dining terraces and spacious outdoor living areas. Although the casita units are inland with a jungle view, the setting is stunning. Everyone on property eats from Cuixmala’s organic farm with locally sourced (and delicious) cheeses, and dairy and meats from a nearby ranch. The calm, swimmable cove is a magical place to relax, plus there are plenty of activity options for those that want to explore the estate’s natural wonders on land (hiking, biking, horseback riding) or sea (sailing, kayaking, snorkeling).
