On a peninsula called Isla Navidad, which wraps itself around the Barra de Navidad Lagoon, sits one of Mexico’s most exclusive developments, The Grand Bay Hotel. Five hundred hectares of land have been subdivided to embrace luxury hotel condominiums, and villas, as well as a recreational center and ecological reserve. A 27-hole golf course designed by Robert Von Hagge, is strung the beachfront dunes of this extraordinary region. It boasts a spacious golf clubhouse with restaurants and fully equipped pro shop, high atop a plateau overlooking the entire resort. Isla de Navidad expansion plans include 2 marinas with capacity for 700 boats, and exclusive private condominiums built around the marinas and golf course. Residents and visitors will enjoy the Phil Ritsdon golf ranch, a yacht club, spas, tennis clubs and a shopping complex.
The land developments taking place along the beautiful Costa Alegre are sophisticated and artfully designed employing a modern day regard and sensitivity toward preserving the natural beauty of the environment. With the aid of ecological engineers, the projects include reforestation and the decreeing of natural reserves. Only a small percentage of the density of the land is being developed, because the glory of Costa Alegre lives in the omnipresent spirit of Mother Nature. It is in the vibrant colors of the sea and the sky, in the giant turtles that swim ashore, and in the dance of the tall palm trees that adorn the land. You can drive through Costa Alegre in a few hours. But once you reach any of the destinations, you’ll want to stay longer. Enjoy.
