Get away from it all with a 4 night stay for 2 adults in a Queen Ecocasita or similar room at beautiful Playa Viva, a sustainable boutique hotel, located 30-minutes from Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa (ZIH) International Airport in Mexico. Enjoy 200 acres of private reserve with close to a mile of pristine beach from the comfort of your luxury casita.

This Eco-luxe hotel is “Where Your Vacation Meets your Values.” At Playa Viva, you will enjoy the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Mexico in the guilt-free luxury of an environmentally-conscious resort. Each of the 12 rooms has a beachfront view. Attend our morning yoga practice, become immersed in nature, volunteer in the turtle sanctuary, give back to the local community, engage in a workshop, or just relax completely. A number of activities are available, in the categories of wellness, adventure, exploration, and inspiration. The property also includes an estuary, an Aztec archeological site, a permaculture farm and gardens, 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. Your stay includes airport ground transportation (to and from ZIH), all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) plus snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, daily yoga (except Sunday), and WiFi in the common area.
