About us

Escape with 109 world and We Are Young Souls to Playa Viva this December. This will be a journey of reintroducing ourselves to nature with an open and conscious heart. Practice yoga everyday and help us rebuild a local turtle sanctuary. How? A portion of your ticket will go towards all the materials and supplies needed to build the turtle sanctuary. Not only are you helping to fund this project, but we will work together to bring it into fruition. Every year thousands of turtles lay their eggs on shores near Playa Viva. However, due to exploitation, environmental degradation & poaching, many of species of turtle are now on the endangered species list. The turtle sanctuary at Playa Viva is completely volunteer run who not only manage and build the turtle sanctuaries, they patrol beaches throughout the night to help newly hatched turtles safely find their way to the ocean. These hatcheries have to be rebuilt every couple of years in order to avoid bacteria build up and infestation.

This trip is an incredible buffet of love, compassion, service, meditation, yoga, and mental and spiritual awakening.

Menu/Cuisine

When it comes to your health and wellness, what is more important than fresh, organic produce harvested right from your own garden? At Playa Viva, depending on the season, we have a thriving organic garden with a variety of vegetables. Come pick your own salad fixings. Walk our nascent orchard and pick fresh pomegranates, mangoes, cashew nuts and pistachios. We source as much as we can from our land, then from local small farmers who provide milk, cheese and eggs. We take health very seriously - for the earth, and for you and your family. We provide a variety of holistic approaches to healing, much of which revolve around a healthful diet and nutrition.

Accommodations

Queen EcoCasitas are a one-bedroom self contained "Casita" (little house). These rooms have an unobstructed ocean view. EcoCasitas have a private bathroom on the same level and feature shutter doors to open for full ocean view or close for complete privacy. A small table and chairs are also available. Every participant will share room with another participant. Rooms can have up to 3 twin beds.

Directions

The moment you land in Mexico we will take care of you. Your ticket price includes shuttle to and from Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International Airport to and from Playa Viva- where we will be staying.
