Financial Times Weekend Edition on Puerto Escondido MX


Vivo Resorts Located In A Swell Place

In his Financial Times Puerto Escondido article, Writer Kevin Brass wrote in the House & Home section of the Dec 1&2 Weekend Edition that Puerto Escondido Mexico is “A Swell Place.”

According to Brass, the incredible surf at Puerto Escondido “attracts a laid-bak crowd, but a new road and reduced journey times could bring a flood of buyers.”

Brass is referring to the new highway that is near completion between Puerto Escondido and the state’s capital, Oaxaca City. The new highway will reduce the 6 hour mountainous drive down to just 2-hrs and 30 minutes.

As well, Huatulco, which is just 100-km east of Puerto Escondido accepts international flights. However, according to the Financial Times Puerto Escondido article, “A number of airlines have recently launched direct services,” to Puerto Escondido.

And even though Huatulco has enjoyed a flood of resort developments and condo projects in recent years, a fully furnished, one-bedroom beachfront condo in Puerto Escondido sells for “at least 20 to 30 per cent less than comparable units in Huatulco.”

Writer Kevin Brass was referring to the beachfront condo units at Vivo Resorts Oaxacan Beachfront Living, which is located on Palmarito Beach just 15 minutes (by shuttle bus) outside of Puerto Escondido.

About Vivo Resorts

Fronted by over 12-miles of sandy beaches on the Pacific Coast, Vivo Resorts, which broke ground in 2010, is a private, 75-acre gated oceanfront resort community. Vivo was the brainchild of Carey Mullen, a former Canadian Olympian and FIS World Cup champion alpine skier.

Vivo’s progress has been impressive. Here are the stats as of this writing:

  • 200 condo units have been pre-sold
  • 160 condo units are now completed and occupied
  • Vivo recently opened a new 53,000 sq. ft Clubhouse
  • Upon project completion there will be a total of 600 condo units and 114 private villa-style homes
  • Vivo also offers select condo owners a well-managed condo rental program through Vivo Vacations

In his Financial Times Puerto Escondido article Brass writes that, “Despite a steady stream of North American buyers in recent years, Pureto retains an off-the-beaten-track charm. There are no big-chain hotels, no all-inclusive resorts and no Starbucks.”

The beachfront properties at Vivo Resorts attract many Canadian and USA “snowbirds” who love the atmosphere in Puerto Escondido. Condo owner Kevin Jones is quoted as saying, “When you get down here, it’s definately a surf culture…a real bohemian vibe,” adding “I know it will grow and develop. At the same time, it’s such a quiet secluded place.”

Vivo Resorts attracts not only retirees, but also many younger buyers (in their thirties) who are looking for a different lifestyle with affordable waterfront access. Vivo Resorts’ condo prices are still a lot less than most other locations offering tropical oceanfront properties. At Vivo, you can buy a one-bedrom condo “off the water” for just $230,000, while a fully furnished one-bedrom condo on the beach sells for about $340,000.
