Eclectic decor whispers of Mediterranean, French, Japanese, Spanish and, of course, the sweetness of Mexico. Enjoy the deep, rich carved woods, arched columns, beamed ceilings, spiral staircases, and inner courtyards with Bougainvillea, Hibiscus and many other flowering plants. Casa Santuario was originally built in 1966 by Hank and Cosette Wild. Cosette had many friends from her previous life in Hollywood and the property was laid out with entertaining in mind. Cosette was a lavish hostess of gala parties that attracted various Hollywood stars and producers as well as dignitaries including the President of Mexico! It is in this tradition of lavish hospitality that we offer you an experience that you will not soon forget! .Suites in Casa Santuario 1. Tortuga Suite – 1st apt. room (with sitting room) 2.

About the neighbourhood
If you are weary of going to yet another tourist zoo, then San Carlos may be just the place you need to drink in the peaceful natural beauty! A little off the beaten path and blessed with both mountains and sea! Miles of empty beaches offer seclusion and privacy! You can be as active or as relaxed as you wish!
How to get there
If you fly a private plane, we can pick you up for the 12 min. ride to Casa Santuario. If you fly commercial, Hermosillo is the nearest hub. Car rentals or bus is available. Flying to Tucson AZ. and driving 6 & 1/2 hours on a modern four lane highway works. Driving your own car is a breeze.
