Playa Viva

Combining simple elegance with natural beauty and a commitment to improving the environment and the local community, Playa Viva is a sustainable boutique hotel located on the western coast of Mexico, just 35 minutes south of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa International Airport. Nestled between the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean and the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains near the village of Juluchuca, Playa Viva is situated on a mile of pristine and private beach.

Playa Viva is a special place where you and your family can enjoy the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Mexico in the guilt-free luxury of an environmentally-conscious resort.

The property’s nearly 200 acres includes an estuary, an Aztec archeological site, turtle sanctuary, and a coastal forest and mangrove ecosystem which supports an array of stunning wildlife. Playa Viva is close enough to the trappings of modernity yet worlds away providing immersion into the wonders of nature and escape to utter private relaxation.

The natural landscape and luxurious setting provides an escape from it all while providing a jumping off point to a host of adventures and experiences — from hiking to scuba diving to deep-sea fishing to bird watching and kayaking. It’s all here waiting for you – doing everything or nothing at all.

Choose from among eight EcoLuxury rooms each with a beach front view. Become immersed in nature, volunteer in the turtle sanctuary and give back to the local community, engage in a workshop or just relax completely.

Playa Viva provides an all-inclusive experience that combines simple elegance and natural luxury. The hospitality philosophy is based on a simple principle – making you feel at home (except you have no chores). The motto is “Where Your Vacation Meets Your Values” which is based on aspiring to and achieving both the highest level of sustainability and hospitality.
