In 2013, Carlos Slim’s conglomerate, Grupo Carso purchased the resort, golf course and surrounding properties.
Two other development companies had gone bankrupt while building this resort community, so the home owners all breathed a huge sigh of relief when Carlos swept in (he is the second richest man in the world) to save the area.
I don’t do well fry in the sun and I’m not a water person, so I stayed aboard while everyone but the captain and I, went flippers up, into the water.
My weapons of sun defense:
Two days later we moved into my brothers gorgeous little villa, for the rest of our stay.
The community is filled with cobbled pathways that meander into lushly planted courtyards, gorgeous fountains or sparkling pools to hop in for a quick dip. I loved that the villas were all painted in happy, bright colors.
Each night there was a get together, somewhere in this little community. If not a cocktail party around one of the pools it was a clam bake to welcome a new home owner.
One night we were entertained by the Los Beach Dogs as the sun went down at the “Swing Bar”. The rule here was…if you fell off the swing, while sitting at the bar, your name got written on their large chalk board. There were a lot of names on that chalk board, but not mine.
Yes, I was told to turn off my phone when we took off, but I couldn’t resist taking this picture from the air.
