"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."

Window Seat or Aisle Seat: Unplugging Family Vacations
Disconnect to Reconnect - at Playa Viva

April 11, 2012 - columnist Kerri Zane looks at the growing trend of family unplugging vacations and shares the top five tips for going offline when you travel.


Window Seat or Aisle Seat: Unplugging Family Vacations


It seems to me that our world of 24/7 connectivity, originally intended to ease our lives, has rather added a lot more stress and anxiety. Tamar Chansky, Ph.D, author of Freeing Yourself from Anxiety: 4 Simple Steps to Overcome Worry and Create the Life You Want and the leading authority on stress and anxiety disorders said, “We are glued to our technology and we are afraid to let go. If we are truly wanting to function optimally and have a sustainable lifestyle, we must cultivate the discipline to let go.”


So this month, I was on the hunt for a relaxing vacation that did not include TVs, phones, laptops, emails, texting, Wii, iMacs, iPhones or anything else starting with a small i. My goal was to spend quality time with my daughters connecting, exploring and engaging. What I found is a unique sampling of truly unique unplugged destinations, way off the grid.


2. Playa Viva, Mexico - Consciously Unplugged


Sustainable boutique hotel, Playa Viva, is a quick 35-minute ride south of Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International airport on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. The resorts motto is “Disconnect to Reconnect.” With 200 acres of pristine beachfront property, a mile of private beach, turtle sanctuary, hiking trails, organic garden and an outdoor theater under the stars. The owners guarantee your family will easily forget they have an email account let alone an office address.
