Casa Bichu

Because lying on a white-sand beach and sipping cold beer isn't that bad after all. Especially when you can avoid crowds. This year-old, nine-villa resort, cantilevered above a secluded beach on the Pacific bay of Estacahuite, is as mellow as Mexico can be. Other than a few crocodiles, kingfishers, and herons in the neighboring mangrove swamp, there are no distractions. Spend your days snorkeling the coral reef directly off the beach, spa it up, or lounge at the infinity pool, powering through novels. When palapa fever sets in, the resort will arrange a jungle horseback ride, a tour of a nearby coffee farm, a bird-and-crocodile-watching expedition, or deep-sea fishing for tuna or swordfish. Doubles, $390;
