Stable year round climate patterns, optimal Pacific Ocean temperatures, low hurricane risk, safety and security, plus abundant natural beauty and the potential for rising real estate property values are all essential factors here in Puerto Escondido, on the Emerald Coast of Mexico.

Our initial search for potential real estate development began in Maui and moved through 30 possible countries before a drive of nearly the entire Pacific coastline of Mexico led to a little known surfing destination on the Emerald Coast in Oaxaca, near Puerto Escondido.

Located just an hour’s drive north of Huatulco, this emerging part of Mexico has remained almost untouched by large-scale real estate development, and there are no blockbuster all-inclusive resorts or the associated tourist culture. Puerto Escondido remains a laid back beach town with soul.  Puerto Escondido is what Puerto Vallarta used to be. This is the next Vallarta.

Even though you can build a functional, quality resort almost anywhere, the most important features affecting a location’s lifestyle and future value are not manmade but natural. Puerto Escondido has the best of these features in spades.

• Pristine Pacific Coast surfing beaches that stretch for miles
• Mexico’s most desirable year-round climate
• Ultra low risk of hurricanes (only 3 mild hurricanes in the last 160 years!)
• Wide array of outdoor activities, tours and eco adventures
• Authentic Mexico culture and cuisine
• Safe and friendly communities unspoiled by tourism, large-scale real estate development or social issues


Truly great year-round weather is actually hard to find. There are other world lifestyle destinations that may have post card flashes of greatness at the right time during the year, but they may also host large temperature swings, rainy seasons, strong winds, low air quality, and even hurricane risks. Even within Mexico, the weather varies greatly by location.

We chose Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca because it offers the best year-round weather in an ultra-low risk hurricane zone that is also within 4-6 hours flying time of most major airports in North America. Those were our exceptional parameters and Palmarito Beach in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico, covers all of them.

Wonderful Weather Year Round

Our passion goes well beyond weather that is just good enough to ‘escape winter’. In Puerto Escondido, we found what we set out to find: the most extraordinary, year-round weather possible.

For us, this means:

• T-shirt days & no sweater nights year round
• Dry winters with extremely low amounts of rain when you most want to get away
• Comfortable humidity Levels
• Ocean temperatures that are warm at first touch, and are often warmer than the Caribbean or Hawaii

Low Hurricane Risk

Hurricane risk needs to be a top consideration for any potential retirement, vacation, or investment real estate property because hurricanes can not only cause huge amounts of residential damage, but it can also reset an area’s infrastructure back a decade or more.

Insurance can tell a large part of the story, because actuaries pour over vast amounts of climate data. Your residence at Vivo Resorts is easily and affordably insured against hurricanes because the hurricane risk is quite low: there have only been 3 in the past 160 years — and they have all been mild.

More than 164 years of data indicate that the Pacific coastal region around Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca is the lowest risk area in all of Mexico.
