How does staying in a luxurious, eco-friendly, private treehouse overlooking one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world sound for your next vacation? Unroll the rope ladder, cause we’re in.
Welcome to Playa Viva in Juluchuca on Mexico’s Pacific west coast, where the climate is semi-tropical and the sun shines 300 days of the year. A 35 minute ride from the Ixtapa International Airport, the boutique accommodation balances luxury and sustainability across its many forms of lodging – but what we’re really here for is the treehouse.
The wooden cylindrical room is located among swaying palm trees, raised roughly two metres above the ground, making for uninterrupted views of the ocean and surrounds.
The room is outfitted with a king bed, private bathroom, and a small lounge area with in-floor hammock, because we’re pretty sure there’s a law somewhere that says you can’t have a treehouse without a hammock, and rightly so.
The area is famous for its natural, untouched beauty boasting some of the nicest nature walks in town. They even have a turtle sanctuary you can volunteer at while you’re there.
A night in the treehouse will set you back around $455USD per night, and minimum stays apply for peak and off season. This includes all meals, all beverages except booze, airport pick up and drop off, daily yoga sessions and free Wi-Fi.
Needless to say, your Instagram will explode.
