Situated on Mexico`s beautiful Pacific Coast, Costa Alegre (Happy Coast) boasts a subtle glamour with free-thinking retreats and an endless array of attractions. As a matter of fact, "Alegre" or "contento" usually refer to a temporary mood, while "feliz" denotes a more permanent state. In fact, "alegre" corresponds more to cheerful than to happy. Moreover, the Costa Alegre (also spelled Costalegre) is one of Mexico`s most beautiful coastal area, a 144-mile stretch that connects tropical forests with a series of dramatic cliff-lined coves and exclusive accommodations and retreats. Considered one of Mexico`s greatest undiscovered treasures, this coast is becoming a favored hideaway for the exclusives and those in search of natural seclusion. It`s a hidden gem (for now).
