Cool Hunting Presents: Cuixmala

Deep in the Jalisco state of Mexico lies what for many, is a secret paradise. The coastal resort of Cuixmala, contained within a 25,000 acre nature preserve, was founded by Sir James Goldsmith in the 90s. The eco-friendly destination features beautiful cabanas, casitas and houses, along with all the amenities one would expect from an exclusive escape. From horseback riding to prop plane flying to sailing along the Pacific Coast, the resort has something to offer everyone.

While Cuixmala is the definition of laid-back luxury, the resort is far from the main focus of the area. The nature reserve is host to a group of full-time biologists, offering refuge to a number of endemic and endangered species. Since its inception, the principles of preservation and conservation have been at the forefront of the property. The land itself is a small slice of the majestic forests which originally ran down the Pacific coast. Cuixmala’s current proprietors have done their best to maintain and encourage the natural ecology of the region. Beyond conservation of the landscape, Cuixmala was founded with organic farming as a key element of its success, providing guests with the freshest foods directly from the garden.

We recently had the chance to catch up with one of the owners of Cuixmala, Goffredo Marcaccini and the head Chef to learn about the history, cuisine and importance of the property.
