What we love about Cuixmala

  • Casa Gomez, a relaxed spot to enjoy a cocktail at sunset
What to do at Cuixmala

Spend your days at Cuixmala exploring the vast nature reserve and three pristine beaches.

Enjoy yoga with jaw dropping views of the ocean. Go riding through the jungle or along the beach. There are trails for those who prefer hiking or cycling to riding.

For those looking to get active in the water, there’s kayaking, snorkelling, and surfing. Spend the day aboard Cuixmala’s 47ft sailing boat, or their smaller boat which is available for fishing excursions.

Wildlife is a highlight at Cuixmala. Depending on the time of the year, see whales, dolphins and the releasing of baby turtles. Zebras and horses roam the grounds at Cuixmala.


Cuixmala is located on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta. Manzanillo International Airport is just over an hour from the hotel, and Puerto Vallarta just over three.

to Travel

The best time to visit Cuixmala is between November and April. The rainy season runs between June and October, so the surrounding nature reserve will be particularly lush in November.

Go whale watching in January and February. See turtles nest and hatch between November and March. Dolphins can be seen between December and March.
