"We could not have imagined a better vacation for ourselves and two 16 year olds girls. My daughter came home from her first day back at school yesterday, looked around and said "everything seems so pointless if you can't go to the beach." I think she was responding to the deep sense of purpose and commitment that is so present at playa viva. We were fortunate enough to be part of the release of 67 just hatched baby turtles to the sea. (LIterally be part of, hold them in our hands!) It was a connection to the greater scale of life that is ever present in the world, but that we generally perceive only superficially. Yes, it's an incredibly beautiful, peaceful, quiet place with the most welcoming staff and community one can imagine. Yes it has delicious food served in a lovely outdoor setting with pride and graciousness. Yes, its right on the ocean, with cool breezes and an open feeling that is immediately restorative. But in addition, it is a place that is actively involved in doing something important and something good for the guests, the community and the land. We weren't even to the airport when we each were wondering how we could come back."

Viva La Playa!
Playa Viva brings sustainable luxury living to the western coast of Mexico.

July 2011
By Melissa Gillespie

Combining simple elegance with natural beauty and a commitment to improving the environment, Playa Viva is a sustainable boutique hotel located on the western coast of Mexico. Nestled between the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean and the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains near the village of Juluchuca, Playa Viva is situated on a mile of private beach.

Guests will soon be able to enjoy the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Mexico from the comfort of Playa Viva’s new eco casitas. As part of a funding partnership with Conservation International’s Verde Ventures fund, Playa Viva is adding three new eco casitas. These casitas will retain the current style of open-air cabanas powered by off-grid solar and utilizing a waste-watermanagement system.

The new casitas will have 350 square feet of indoor living space, plus an extra 150 square feet in terrace space. Each eco casita has one bedroom and a private bathroom with floor to-ceiling sliding doors that open up to unobstructed ocean views. The accommodations will be built with sustainably harvested local “bocote” and palm timber, and finished with granite sinks from Cuernavaca, handmade brass fittings from San Miguel de Allende, copper light fixtures from Santa Clara del Cobre, and other locally sourced fixtures and design elements.
