A babysitter can be arranged for small children so that you can enjoy morning yoga, a peaceful stroll down the beach, or a few moments in the hammock reading. One-third of the pool is shallow, making it ideal for young children. Our family package includes a voluntourism project, and we provide numerous possibilities for your children to participate in the local community and learn about how children live in other cultures.
About PlayaViva :
Enhances the wellbeing of the community
Playa Viva conducts programs based on health, education, and economic development that serve the Juluchuca community as one of its key beliefs.
Fresh, organically grown, and locally sourced food is served :
Playa Viva uses locally sourced foods and organically cultivated goods to define farm to table. The resort's agriculture team concentrates on crops that are high in nutrients, such as dark greens, nuts and seeds, fresh fruits, and most recently, animal products that are farmed on farms and in forests.
Sustainable agriculture regenerates the environment:
The permaculture team at Playa Viva employs both local knowledge and scientific analysis to understand the geography, define carbon sequestration targets for Playa Viva's forests, and pick the most appropriate trees to introduce through reforestation. Playa Viva uses permaculture principles and reforestation through an agroforestry design lens to improve the soil's ability to retain water and begin to transform its sandy earth into microbial rich loamy soil that will benefit future generations.
Leaders in regenerative architecture:
Playa Viva was designed from the ground up with regenerative concepts in mind, with sustainability strongly woven in its essential values. It utilizes an 100% off-grid solar power, smart water design to save water and replenish the nearby aquifer with even cleaner water, locally collected renewable building materials, and fixtures made by skilled local artisans.
Living off the grid:
In the rough Sierra Mountains, ride an ATV to local coffee and chocolate growers.
