In the aftermath of Hurricane Patricia, the strongest hurricane ever recorded and which made landfall here, the Cuixmala team expresses their heartfelt concern for local villagers whose homes were destroyed and damaged by the storm. The hurricane had a devastating impact on many small towns and villages along the coast.
“While Cuixmala resort had some damage to our buildings and blow down of trees, we were largely spared from the full wrath of the storm. Our hearts are with the local communities that experienced extensive damage and many of whose residents also work at Cuixmala. We are committed to helping them rebuild their homes,” says Alix Goldsmith Marcaccini, Cuixmala’s owner.
Cuixmala is planning charity events in London and Los Angeles to raise funds for families whose homes were damaged by the hurricane and they have also launched The Hurricane Patricia Relief Fund for affected towns and villages of Costa Alegre. Anyone can make a donation by clicking here.
