Hacienda de San Antonio
Hacienda de San Antonio in Colima, is a far from the beach and, as a result, offers a different experience from the coastal resorts. According to travel gurus Mr. and Mrs. Smith:
“Aspiring aristocrats will feel right at home at the Hacienda de San Antonio hotel, a coral pink piece of perfection in Mexico’s small highland state of Colima. This elegant 120-year old colonial-style estate with commanding colonnades and curved archways was restored and decorated with panache by the Goldsmith family. The serene location, surrounded by coffee plants and dense bamboo, is an escape-the-paparazzi-worthy hideaway.”

Finally, Cuixmala in Costalegre, is a luxury estate that has been converted to a lodge. Nestled next to the jungle, this eco-resort is also part of a natural reserve which works toward environmental preservation. Depending on the season, guests can help biologists release newly hatched sea turtles to the wild! Or explore the reserve’s trails on horseback, kayak, swim and snorkel in the pristine waters. Then, at the end of the day, enjoy dinner at the beach side resort hotel.
