"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."

A Semi-Secret Surfing Oasis South of Zihuatenejo, Mexico
by Matt Thompson of Wavecation.com

Less than an hour's drive outside Zihuatenejo, Mexico (including 15 exciting minutes on a very unpaved road), you'll find Playa Viva -- a beachfront oasis amid miles of tranquil (and surfable) beaches.

Being the first trip away from our one-year-old, my wife was looking forward to lying by the pool with a good book for three days while I, the avid surfer, was looking for waves. Although Playa Viva isn't a world-renowned surf destination like Troncones and La Saladita to the north, I was pleasantly surprised with chest-high, glassy waves each morning. Even in the afternoon when the waves weren't as good, the swimming and body surfing was fun in the rougher water.

For land lovers, Playa Viva hosts daily adventures like yoga on the sundeck or an hour-long ATV ride into the mountains to visit a cacao and coffee farm. And yes, lying by the pool with a book is available as well.
