"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."

While Morgan Webert, our first head of community relations, was working with the local schools during Earth Day 2010 on a clean up program of the local river and beach, she developed a deeper relationship with the teachers and administrators. Through those conversations, they provided Morgan with a list of needs for the children. Here is what Morgan sent us:

Local Elementary School Wish List
Giving back to the community you’ll be visiting is easy, and giving to the children is always one of the best ways. The local elementary school in Juluchuca, the small village next to Playa Viva, would benefit greatly from any old books or children’s educational material that may be in your donation or throw away pile. Instead, pack it in your suitcase and bring it to children who often do not have enough paper to do lessons with and very few books in their class rooms.

Suggested donations:
-children’s books (in English or Spanish, great English learning tools)
-colored paper
-notebooks
-colored pencils
-paint brushes for water colors
-old calculators
-any arts and crafts materials
-maps
-old text books (the teachers could use them)

Playa Viva partners with Pack for a Purpose - " we hope you will support them and their mission, so pack a little donation for the local school in need as you venture off on your summer travels, wherever you go.
