Welcome to the private paradise that is Playa Caracol

At Playa Caracol, everything is amplified–colors, textures, surf. Our stunning kilometer of private beach is a fine and sugary white confection. The ocean is a flood of aquamarine, navy and turquoise shades. A verdant jungle hides vivid multi-colored toucans and other exotic animals. In the distance, you can see where the Inca giants tossed volcanic islands into the sea, producing many islands ripe for exploring. It is epic.

Beachfront condos from the 180's

With residences starting at $180,000, this is paradise found. No detail has been spared to make these homes carefree, luxurious and green. Glass balconies bring ocean views indoors. The beautifully designed Penthouses with their incredible nine-foot ceilings create a spacious envelope of light and air - a private oasis to relax and listen to the lapping waves.

Untouched and unspoiled

More than thirty years ago, the only way to get to isolated Chame peninsula was by boat. No roads penetrated the tropical coast. Chame was nothing more than small farms and shrimp flats. Developers skipped this peninsula and built projects of mixed quality much further south and far away from this oasis.

Protecting the extraordinary

Playa Caracol is a signature project by developer Grupo Los Pueblos.
Today, Grupo Los Pueblos and several other cooperating developers cooperate to converve the natural environment on the Chame peninsula. They established fierce standards for ecologically sensitive building and sustainability that exceed government rules. Much of the land is protected nature preserve now.

A fun community with an up-tempo beat

By design, Playa Caracol is a relaxed beach community. The newly opened surf school offers private individual surf lessons by highly qualified instructions. In the attached café you can enjoy a quick drink, dine on light snacks, sit down to full meals and try our favorite fish tacos and lime-chicken empanadas. If you feel ambitious, hike Chame Peak behind the community and witness the sun burn away the misty morning clouds below your feet. You’ll discover new wildlife every time. Or, if you prefer, settle into a beach hammock with your iPad and catch up on your reading. Late in the day there’s usually a pick-up volleyball game in the beach sand courts. At night, pick one of the many outdoor grill casitas and host a barbeque – or crash a neighbor’s feast. There’s a good chance the surf school guys will showing a movie projected on a screen in front of the ocean. Whatever your bliss, you can find it here.
