Our all-inclusive stay at Cuixmala includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, non-alcoholic drinks, beer and wine with dinner*, snacks, daily activities, nightly entertainment, 4x4’s. The following activities are also included so you are able to fully enjoy this one of a kind venue.
Ride your way through the property with a guide as you discover our many beautiful fruit orchards, coconut fields, and stunning vistas.
Whether you’re riding through a herd of zebras, spotting one of the lagoons’ many crocodiles or atejon scampering across the trail, exploring Cuixmala by horseback is the most magical way to experience our wildlife and exotic animals.
Located at the foot of Casa Cuixmala and adjacent to Cuixmala’s lagoons is a sanctuary that is home to Cuixmala’s exotic animals, including thirty-five zebras, fifteen elands, and two gazelles. You are welcome to visit the sanctuary on your own and observe the animals from the road or ride horseback through the sanctuary in the company of Cuixmala’s Cowboys to experience the animals up close.
Climb aboard a 47’ ketch for an afternoon spent sailing the coastline of Chamela Bay and the nearby islands. Jump off and swim ashore to a small secluded beach on a secluded island sailing or relax on deck and soak up the sun catching glimpses of sea turtles, stingrays, dolphins, and schools of fish. Retire below to one of the two guest cabins for a nap and some shade. Enjoy complimentary fresh snacks and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages in the above or below deck dining areas. Accommodates 6-8 guests and can be shared with other groups.

HIKES, WALKS & RUNS
One of the best ways to get to know Cuixmala and see nature up close is on two feet. We encourage you to explore Cuixmala at your leisure on both our paved and unpaved roads. You’ll find a “Cuixmala Walk & Run Loop Map” in your casita or villa that shows three suggested routes of varying distances through and around the Cuixmala plantation.
Bicycles await you just outside your casa, beckoning for a ride down to the beach or cruise around the lagoon. Venture out and explore the property on your own, or contact guest services if you’d like a guided tour.
Join us in our organic gardens for a chance to learn about our biodynamic farming operations that provide the produce for our restaurants. You are welcome to explore the coconut plantation, organic farm, citrus and mango orchards, banana plantation, and plant nursery on your own at any time of day on foot, by bicycle, or by car. But we would also be delighted to have one of our guides take you on a 45- to 60-minute tour that includes a thirst-quenching drink of fresh coconut water straight from a just-harvested coconut.
MARINE TURTLE SANCTUARY
Learn about our Marine Turtle Conservation Program at Playa Cuixmala where we’ve protected more than 10,000 nests and released over half a million newly hatched turtles since its inception in 1988. From July to April, meet newly hatched turtles and even help release them after dark as they journey to the sea for the first time. A truly unique and memorable experience.
