1st timer to Mexico. Anyone been to CUIXMALA?

Will be ringing in the New Year in the Cuixmala. This is the first time I'll be in Mexico. Anyone been, and what's there to do around there? I hear it's an amazing place albeit pretty remote, and there's a small town within driving distance. Any suggestions for what to do during a 4 night stay would be fantastic. Thanks.

Daytime. horseback riding is a must, through jungles, along deserted beaches, crocodile lagoons. Snorkeling at Bahia Paraiso. Walking on miles of unspoiled beaches, which they have at Cuixmala, Careyes, and nearby Chamela. A little dusty town on the north side of Chamela Bay called Perula is great for lunch, great food at small beachfront restaurants like La Sirenita and Che Che with great views to the islands in the bay.

Careyes is about 10 minutes north of Cuixmala, it has polo matches in the afternoon, a great restaurant at the Playa Rosa Beach Club, a new nightclub on the beach with music and bonfires, and non stop house parties.

It is very remote, but that is the good part, very unspoiled, very beautiful. Even the small towns are 30-40 minutes away.

Dragnet Mexico is a wonderful place. Last time I went to the Riviera Maya which was amazing. I am thinking of going to Cuixmala this winter. Please do let us know how your vacation turned out. Other than pictures and the sparse reviews (there's a small piece about it in December's In Style magazine) I've read, I don't know much about the place.

I attended a wedding at Cuixmala in Feb 2005. It was the most amazing experience. You will LOVE it there. It is literally paradise.
