Nature
We all need wild places to regenerate our souls. You'll feel a change in your spirit as you change into your beachwear. By the end of a week's stay you'll settle into the pace of nature - a pace where the best moments will be spent watching pelicans fly in formation over the sea, spying an iguana basking on a warm rock, and the daily ritual of toasting the sun as it sets over the ocean.

"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."

Turtle Sanctuary
At the southeast corner of Playa Viva, an all-volunteer staff, comprised of members of the local community, has set up a turtle sanctuary. These are fisherman and farmers who recognized the damage being done to the local turtle population and decided to make a difference.

Estuary Expedition
Hop in a flat-bottom boat and tour the estuary, gliding past mangroves, nests of cranes, and native wildlife. Or just grab your own kayak and venture off to explore the wonders of this tropical paradise on your own. Don't forget your fishing line - you might catch something delicious to bring back to the kitchen for dinner.

Birding
The estuary, wetlands and oceanside provide nesting and feeding grounds for thousands of birds. You'll be able to identify and observe more than 200 species that call Playa Viva home.

 
Hiking
Our 160-acre private reserve will have trails to take you from the beach, through dunes, into wetlands and up rocky knolls. The permaculture team is restoring a network of paths to allow visitors to fully enjoy the biodiversity that Playa Viva has to offer. We've also built relationships with other land owners to open up hiking trails nearby. Eventually there'll be a network of trails that take you from the mouth of the Juluchuca River all the way up the watershed.
