"David and Sandra have put together something above and beyond anything I have experienced before. You get a beach to yourself, the place is elegant and luxurious, the design is spectacular - and you also get an education in sustainability, reforestation, permaculture in a really pleasant way. The rigors of the nap schedule and fine meals suited me too - I feel like a human being again after having become a zombie from working too hard. "

7 Green Getaways in Mexico, Including a Budget Option
local sustainable materials, off-grid solar, community activities and more...

Playa Viva: This all-inclusive inn, about 25 miles south of Zihuatanejo in the village of Juluchuca, opened its first phase of just five suites and studios in November 2009. Eventually to consist of 35 casitas, 23 home lots, a town square and a boutique hotel, it is being built with local sustainable woods and bamboo, while fixtures, utensils and linens are all handmade locally. Off-grid solar energy runs everything but the gas-powered stove and refrigerators. Community activities include organic agriculture, an artisanal salt co-op, programs promoting organic farmers and food co-ops, and local recycling programs and education. Travelers can get a price break by volunteering in the property's 200-acre turtle sanctuary.
