Action and Adventure
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.

"We all loved our stay. The resort is beautiful and the staff is the best ever. We loved them all. Yoga was great each morning. The food was exactly what we wanted. The kids loved the pool. Our only complaint was the biting bugs. They feasted on us. Maybe it is the time of year and would not be as bad at another time. If you can find an answer for the bugs your place would be perfect. Thank you for creating such a wonderful vacation. "

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.

 
Horseback Riding
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.

 
Excursions
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.
