I feel very lucky to have stumbled across the new boutique eco resort Playa Viva for our New Year's vacation. The place is gorgeous. You're right on a beautiful secluded beach. The accommodations are very lovely - you feel very comfortably a part of the natural surroundings. The staff was great and the food outstanding. Our family enjoyed the daily yoga, the surf, the pool, the nightime movies, dominos and releasing sea turtles at the nearby sanctuary.
My only regret is that this amazing spot is likely to get harder for us to book as the good word spreads...
