A Semi-Secret Surfing Oasis South of Zihuatenejo, Mexico

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.
