Combining simple elegance with natural beauty and a commitment to improving the environment and the local community, Playa Viva is a sustainable boutique hotel located on the western coast of Mexico, just 35 minutes south of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa International Airport. 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 pristine and private beach.
Playa Viva provides an all-inclusive experience that combines simple elegance and natural luxury. Our hospitality philosophy is based on a simple principle - making you feel at home (except you have no chores). Our motto is "Where Your Vacation Meets Your Values" which is based on aspiring to and achieving both the highest level of sustainability and hospitality.
Nature is the first ingredient in our secret sauce. We start with the invisible force that comes from being immersed in nature and the resulting personal transformation. Next, we add an all-inclusive experience because we sincerely dislike the feeling of being “nickel and dimed” - charged for every little thing - when we travel. Lastly, we fold in a mix of private and public spaces balanced perfectly to generate a sense of community between our guests, staff and the local community.
When it comes to your health and wellness, what is more important than fresh produce harvested right from the garden? At Playa Viva, depending on the season, we have a thriving organic garden with a variety of vegetables, microgreens, and seeds. Come tour the "huerto" and pick your own salad fixings, or, take a stroll through our nascent orchard ripe with pomegranates, mangoes, jackfruit, and cashew nuts. We source as much as we can from our land and also support local farmers who provide milk, cheese, and eggs. We invite you to volunteer and join our work in food production and reforestation.

The property’s nearly 200 acres includes an estuary, an Aztec archeological site, a turtle sanctuary, and a coastal forest and mangrove ecosystem which supports an array of stunning wildlife.
