Prime Living From Vegas to the Magic City, Capricho Residences has taken the U.S. by storm — and major movers-and-shakers such as Ralph Lauren model and Polo player Nacho Figueras (pictured here), Live with Regis and Kelly producer Michael Gelman, Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford and Extra! correspondent A.J. Calloway are taking notice. The low-density resort is dedicated to creating a true “green” property, keeping 60-percent of the land undeveloped. The gated community of Playa Mujeres Resort stands on 600 acres of natural landscape, with over two miles of undisturbed beachfront. It features two 18-hole Greg Norman golf courses; a first-class marina; a private helipad; and numerous restaurants and boutiques. Owners at one of Capricho’s 220 two-, three- and four-bedroom residential units will enjoy generously-sized homes featuring outdoor patios with fire pits, private rooftop terraces and a private beach club with restaurant and spa. The property creates the feeling of a “Garden of Eden” just minutes from the heart of Cancun and less than an hour from Miami. The Boutique Hotel, the first phase of residences and the Beach Club will be finished by 2009.
