Juluchuca, Mexico


We all need wild places to regenerate our souls. You can enjoy the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Mexico in the luxury of an environmentally-conscious resort. From farm to table cuisine and yoga retreats, to nurturing the wild turtle habitat, Playa Viva treasures the environment as well as the guests, for an unforgettable stay in harmony with nature. 

Host a beachfront yoga retreat, or attend our morning yoga practice. Become immersed in nature, volunteer in the turtle sanctuary, give back to the local community, engage in a workshop, or just relax completely. Reserve your stay today and experience the bounty of the local ecosystem while helping it to thrive. Playa Viva is "Where Your Vacation Meets Your Values."
