COTO DE CAZA
The name “Coto de Caza” comes from the Spanish for “hunting preserve.” Once of favorite haunt of Hollywood celebrities, Coto de Caza is a census designated place and a guard-gated private community with a population of just over 14,000 as of the 2010 census. This community began in 1968 when it was envisioned as a hunting lodge and was completed in 2003. The majority of the community is tract housing, with collections of custom-built homes on the outskirts off the main streets. Los Ranchos Estates is a separate private community behind the gates of Coto de Caza and has its own homeowner’s association.
