Coto de Caza

About Coto de Caza

As prestigious of a community as they come in North America, “Coto” is a special place for many of the world’s most affluent residences. A master-planned community surrounded by constantly monitored gates, it is one of the few places of such size (approximately 15,000 residents) to be a completely guarded enclave.

With virtually no businesses besides a grocery store and the “new” and “old” golf clubs, you won’t find much commerce in Coto de Caza. In fact, you won’t find a public school inside of the gates (students are districted to the Capistrano Unified School District). The residents demand such seclusion and privacy. Many residents essentially consider themselves part of nearby Rancho Santa Margarita, an incorporated city with the amenities and services to satisfy Coto’s residents. Just outside the gates, the Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park is a 500-acre natural habitat with walking and equestrian trails that surrounds the exclusive and prestigious community.
