On the gorgeous Pacific coast of Mexico, near Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, is the tranquil and wonderfully eco-friendly Playa Viva. This sustainable boutique hotel on over 200 acres of land will delight you from your very first moments. With open and spacious beach rooms, crafted from bamboo and local responsibly-harvested hardwoods, you are sure to sink into relaxation. Plush canopied beds open to your private porch, with gorgeous ocean views abound. With its picturesque setting, and casually comfortable furnishings, the soothing atmosphere will put you at ease as it melts away your stresses. Imagine waking to the sound of the waves gently rolling onto the beach, as the tropical sun warms the land, and you will picture your days at Playa Viva.
Start with a relaxing yoga or meditation class, and center yourself before experiencing the wonders of Mexico. Stroll down to the beach for a day of sunning or snorkeling in the refreshing blue waters. For a great day outing, charter a boat and head out for some deep sea fishing, or adventure on land with a romantic horseback ride. Hike or bike through miles of rainforest, wetlands and beach trails to soak in the truly tropical feel. To take part in something special, aid the volunteers at the turtle sanctuary by gathering eggs for protection, releasing baby turtles to reach the sea safely. After a great day in the sun, return to Playa Viva for a fabulous and fresh dinner. Crafted from organic and locally grown ingredients, as well as free range chicken, fresh fish and grass-fed beef, each meal is as delicious as it is healthy. At Playa Viva you will experience all the bounties of nature, and rest comfortably knowing that you are keeping that beauty alive.
