"Our stay was absolutely wonderful. I knew from the minute we arrived that I would surely come back for another vacation. It will be hard to have to share the place next time! I have traveled to Mexico 10+ times and this was one of my favorite trips. Far exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious and Chucky was extremely accommodating. He even made me a vegan omelette which was delicious. We ate far too much! The staff were all so warm and friendly and long hugs were exchanged when we departed. We truly enjoyed the company of Johnny, Julia and Aavi. We are also now Dominos fanatics! We have no complaints at all. Our only recommendation would be to have a chest of drawers available in the EcoCasitas. It's a little tough living out of a suitcase for 6 days."

Regenerate
Every aspect of our operations goes beyond low-impact. We'll continue to update as environmental technology advances and our understanding of our environment grows. We will be building to the highest environmental standards,but NOT pursuing LEED Certification, as the Regenerative Standard goes beyond LEED in many ways.  Read More

 
Permaculture
Permaculture is a way of life that supports itself, the way natural ecosystems do. It relies on sustainable agriculture, and living each day without relying on the industrial systems of production and distribution.

Our techniques build an increasingly self-sufficient human settlement. Playa Viva, from Nature Preserve to Edible Landscaping, is built on these principles under the direction of a team of trained permaculture experts.

Water
Playa Viva will use smart water conservation measures to not only ensure the minimal use of this precious resource, but to ensure that the water we do use is put back into the aquifer even cleaner then when it was removed.  Read More

Energy
We investigated and debated many options and concluded that connecting to the grid and feeding back an equivalent amount of clean energy was the solution with the least environmental impact.  Read More

 
Eco-Friendly Products
Playa Viva is being created with a judicious and creative use of local materials which will be recycled, salvaged, and eco-friendly. Furniture will be created by local artisans using leftover wood. New woods will be harvested from local palm tree groves and sustainably-managed forests. Up to 75% of construction waste will be recycled.

Your children's health and wellbeing is paramount to our designs and every element of Playa Viva. Nothing provides more luxury than healthful and natural materials
