On out way out we checked the office and he was there. That's when we got the offer to check out one of the "castles". I had seen the castles from Careyitos beach but didn't imagine I'd ever get up there. There are two of these places on opposing cliffs at the entrance to the bay. Without going into a Sunset Magazine description ... it is amazing to see what people can build with no financial limits.
In 1968 a young Italian named Gian Franco Brignione saw these bays and lagoons from a small plane. Though there were few towns in the vicinity and no electricity, paved roads, or even an airport at Manzanillo (where most of the hotel’s guests now arrive), Brignione knew that it was love at first sight.
