Costalegre | Vacations and Travel to Costalegre
Costalegre consists of five coastal areas that stretch for 100 miles along Mexico's Pacific coast: Bahia de Navidad (Christmas Bay), Bahia Tenacatita, Costa Careyes, Bahia de Chamela, and Costa Majahuas. Each one has its own natural charm that makes it unique, crafted by the powers of nature that have created cliffs, crags, virgin beaches, and bays, as well as state-protected nature reserves that are home to endemic plants and wildlife.
In the '90s it was designated an "Ecological Tourism Corridor" because of its natural beauty and picturesque towns with their welcoming inhabitants. It is the perfect place to discover the splendor of a Mexico rich in culture, traditions, and stunning landscapes.
Given that Costalegre has an almost endless amount of lagoons, mangroves, islands, and beaches, there's a lot to do when it comes to watersports, including surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat tours, fishing, and swimming, to name but a few. Likewise, the region's mountains and geographical features make it ideal for ecotourism, along with golf, cycling, zip lines, and other fun outdoor activities.
