Emerging Location

The ideal time to invest in a lifestyle asset is after amenities and infrastructure have begin to grow, but before a population and development boom fully take root. Existing infrastructure growth means investment is already flowing into the area. Before a population and development boom means prices reflect tremendous value.

Through meticulous research, the Vivo team sought to identify a destination on the verge of discovery, which optimized both lifestyle and investment factors. Palmarito Beach and Puerto Escondido reflect the perfect mix of tremendous, unspoiled natural beauty, growing infrastructure and costs per square foot that are the lowest they will ever be. The most exciting growth for this area is about to happen.

The Past 10 Years

The first traffic lights were installed in only 2005, and the population has since increased from 20,000 to more than 30,000. A new hospital, and a growing number of chain stores and car dealerships followed in short order – as will as a 300% increase in air passenger volumes.

The Next 10 Years

The local, state and national governments have begun major highway expansions, telecommunication upgrades and socio-economic development initiatives because population is expected to grow by another 50% over the next 10 years. In total, more than $50 billion is earmarked for infrastructure upgrades and development in the coming years.


The Oaxaca-Puerto Highway will connect the mainland to the Pacific coast by a route that drops travel times from 7 hours to 2.5 hours. A greatly improved highway from Huatulco to Puerto Escondido will increase capacity and greatly reduce travel times as well.


The long tradition of hand crafted crafts, clothing and foods – which include locally grown coffee and chocolate, are now complemented by the offerings of larger brands and outlets. Honda, Oxxo, Autozone, Chedraui and others can supply all the amenities and services you are accustomed to.


Passenger volumes have increased by more than 300% in the past 5 years, and this trend is expected to continue — moving from 185,000 passengers in 2015 to 1.1 million by 2025.
