The Community: Las Catalinas community’s goal is to build the most beautiful town in the world. It is 1200-acre beachfront town designed using the principles of “New Urbanism” and features homes designed by internationally renowned architects. The urban plan emulates the characteristics of well-known communities around the world, including Cinque Terre Italy, Cartagena Colombia to Seaside Florida; which have stood the test of time. The town’s architecture is stunning and features grand public buildings, plazas, fountains and winding cobblestone alleyways. The residential density of the beach town allows for the conservation of hundreds of acres of protected recreational forest and green space for community use. As well, the urban plan fosters more social interaction in the community, as the streets and walkways are automobile-free. There is a world-class beach club where you can train or just relax, as well as an ocean-view boutique hotel, beachfront restaurant, a business center, shops, a spa and a top-notch recreational retail store, mountain bike center, and rental shop. There are two beaches, Playa Danta and Playa Dantita, surrounded by crystalline waters and over 50 kilometers of biking and nature trails for hiking through the surrounding forests.
