The unparalleled beauty of Costa Careyes, the chic destination just a two-and-a-half-hour drive south of Puerto Vallarta, is captured in every sense of the word by "The Magic of Careyes," an exquisite new coffee table book published by the GF Brignone Foundation. For anyone interested in the "real" story behind the founding of Careyes, this is the book told by those who were there. The project combined the talent of Mexico City writer Carlos Tello Díaz and renowned photographers Len Jershel, Diane Cook, John Frost and Michael Calderwood, whose unique images are featured extensively in the publication. Part of the proceeds of the book, which can be purchased in Puerto Vallarta and in fine bookstores throughout Mexico, will be put toward the foundation's projects, which include the protection of sea turtles and the environment in the Careyes area. The Brignones have wanted to do this project for years, and the end result is certainly worth the wait! Please visit for additional purchasing information.
