Costa Careyes was founded in 1968 by Gian Franco Brignone, an innovative artist, architect and entrepreneur from Torino, Italy whose dream was to create a unique resort. While flying over the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Brignone was enchanted with the Coast of Careyes, which today has become best known for its preserved natural landscape, innovative architecture and pleasant year-round climate.

Now, almost 40 years after Brignone first made his home in Careyes, a fascinating community has emerged - one that is comprised of international travelers from Europe, Mexico, and United States and beyond. In Careyes, every nationality is welcomed and appreciated. All residents have chosen to build homes in Careyes because of the privacy and quality of life the community provides, as well as the universal dedication to preserving the natural habitat.

Each year, Careyes hosts several festivals, parties and gatherings that recognize some of the world's greatest traditions, including the annual Chinese New Year celebration. Throughout the year, residents and visitors alike also enjoy a host of other activities including Polo tournaments, art exhibits and the sea turtle preservation program.
