With close to 85% of the property as a private reserve, we have a huge wild space to explore. You'll get to enjoy horseback rides along the beach, head off on a deep sea fishing adventure or scuba diving excursion, or just explore the local flora and fauna on one of our many marked trails. Or just grab a ball and strike up a game of soccer, volleyball or football.
"Thank you for creating such a magical place as PlayaViva!
I have travelled extensively through my life, due to my job and I can say that I had one of the best vacations ever!
Everything was perfect (minus the mosquitos!), the staff, the food, the best basil margaritas ever! the people that we met there and we will be certainly be back for more! My fondest memory though was when Cassie (such a great girl!) organized the painting of the kids school, very humbling and bonding experience for all of us involved.
Surfing & Water Sports
Playa Viva offers some of the best surf on Mexico's Pacific Coast, for novice, intermediate and top surfers. Local surfing instructors welcome all skill levels. Breaks include Escolleras, Playa Linda, La Saladita, the Ranch, Mahajua, Troncones, Playa Manzanillo, Juluchuca, La Barrita and Las Gatas, all within a one-hour drive. Playa Viva is adjacent to Playa Icacos, one of the only locations in Mexico where top surfers can catch one of the few pipelines in all of Mexico.
Snorkeling, Scuba, Spear Fishing
Snorkeling and scuba diving is available through a local tour operator in Zihuatanejo. You can also snorkel in the ocean right in front of Playa Viva and see lots of sea life, however it is open ocean so swim with a buddy. As a special bonus, we can pair you with a local spear fisherman who can teach you how to catch your dinner. Read More
Kayaking or "Panga"
Immerse yourself in nature by taking a small group or private kayak tours in one of the many lagoons near Playa Viva. The state of Guerrero, Mexico, is home to thousands of waterfowl and migratory birds. At Playa Viva, we work with local fisherman who can take you out on their "panga", small boats, for a tour of the estuary, a great way to see birds, amphibians, mangrove and gain a new perspective on Playa Viva.
Horses will be available on site at Playa Viva. The horses will be clean, well fed and very tame with western saddles and bridles. We partner with local farmers to provide their horses for riding. One pony is available for kids. Playa Viva has a horse on site available too.
Whether it's surfing, shopping or seeking arts and entertainment, we have lots of transport and guide options to host you on whatever tour strikes your fancy.
