Profile

At USD 7 million and up, El Banco is one of the area's most expensive projects.

It's easy to see why the developers -- ex-Yahoo CEO Tim Koogle and his wife, Pam -- fell in love with the location. It's in a private cove with a great beach.

The contemporary Mexican architecture has been designed meticulously.

There will be construction here for years, including more homes, an artificial lake and a USD 1200-a-night hotel and spa.

At USD 7 million and up, El Banco is one of the area's most expensive projects.

It's easy to see why the developers -- ex-Yahoo CEO Tim Koogle and his wife, Pam -- fell in love with the location. It's in a private cove with a great beach.

The contemporary Mexican architecture has been designed meticulously.

There will be construction here for years, including more homes, an artificial lake and a USD 1200-a-night hotel and spa.

Pros

- Arguably the nicest beach on Banderas Bay
- Low-density, exclusive
- Great example of contemporary Mexican architecture
- You can tell the developers care. Unlike most developments, this isn't just a business. It's a labor of love, and the developers plan to live here themselves, always a good sign.
- Excellent infrastructure ... back-up water treatment, electrical, etc.

Cons

- No golf
- Isolated ... the flip side of low-density
- Limited ability to customize the architectural plans
- No one has direct beach access other than the estate lots.
- Construction for years.
