Discover the 'next' Maui.


Today, in Puerto Escondido Mexico, you'll find a place like Maui in the days of old. Incredible beaches. Idyllic weather. Authentic & relaxed lifestyle. There's also Million Dollar views that are much less than a million.

What makes real estate in Maui so desirable, also rings true for real estate in Puerto Escondido. Stable year round climate patterns, optimal ocean temperatures, ultra low hurricane risk, safety and security, plus abundant natural beauty. But unlike Maui today, you’ll find beachfront and ocean view properties that are priced well within reach.

Hi! I’m Cary Mullen, the developer and owner of Vivo Resorts in Puerto Escondido MX. Just like you, I was searching online for real estate in a place like Maui. My search began in Hawaii, but with prices often at $1000/sq.ft. or more, I knew I was too late from an investment timing perspective. So I set out to find the “next” Maui…places like Maui that would still be affordable. My search brought me through 30 possible countries before a drive of nearly the entire coastline of Mexico led to a little known surfing destination on Oaxaca’s Emerald Coast..Puerto Escondido!

Located in the state of Oaxaca, this emerging part of Mexico has remained almost untouched by large scale development, and there are no blockbuster all-inclusive vacation resorts and associated tourist culture. Puerto Escondido is pure Mexico and remains a laid back beach town with soul.

With Vivo Resorts Oaxacan Beachfront Living, we’ve created a luxury gated resort community that can be compared to the best, like Maui…but even better. Call us toll free at 1-844-777-8486 and discover Vivo Resorts in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.


Our early market position in an untouched location brings incredible advantages for Puerto Escondido real estate.

  • Beachfront Condos & Private Homes with levels of refinement and panoramic views that seem impossible at this price point
  • Unrivalled natural beauty, tranquility and seclusion
  • The best weather of any beachfront location in Mexico and North America – as good as or better than Maui.
  • All the benefits of a growing, local infrastructure without the congestion, tourist crowds or over-commercialization


From soft closing cupboards and drawers to 5 hinged solid wood doors and onyx sinks, you’ll keep looking for a compromise but won’t find it. The Vivo Resorts design philosophy revolves around quality, luxury, and thoughtfulness.

Materials and the aesthetic have been chosen to reflect pride of ownership for decades to come. Every suite is thoughtfully laid out for optimal use, optimal views, and a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living spaces.


We chose Puerto Escondido Mexico because it offers the best year-round weather in an ultra-low risk hurricane zone. As well, travelling involves a minimal time zone shift and is within 4-6 hours flying time of most major North American airports. Puerto Escondido even has its own airport with direct flights from Mexico City.

Our passion goes well beyond weather that is just good enough to ‘escape winter’. We set out to find a vacation destination with the most extraordinary, year-round weather possible.

For us, this means:
• T-shirt & shorts temperatures 24/7/365
• 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 Hawaii


Vivo Resorts Oaxacan Beachfront Living is a community where residents, guests, and staff know each other by name. You will make new connections each time you stay, and may even find yourself coordinating future visits with these new friends. As a developer, I’m also a resident, as are many of Vivo’s leadership team. This is because Vivo Resorts began as a personal vision for lifestyle and community.

What our clients are saying

Loving It!

“We loved our Stay&Play experience at Vivo Resorts. The location is beautiful and the accommodations outstanding. The staff was great – friendly and always available to answer questions and make our stay comfortable!  Puerto Escondido is a beautiful area – quiet, off the beaten path and none of the busy tourist driven commerce – just authentic Mexico. Beautiful beaches and so many different activities are available.  We can’t wait to come back and bring the kids along.  It’s going to be a great place to retire.”

Chris & Sue, Ohio


“After doing a lot of research and eventually going on on one of their “Stay and Play” trips, I was convinced that Vivo was the place for me. Not only is it a beautiful and relaxing setting with incredible ocean views, its authentic, unspoiled Mexico, and doesn’t have all the trappings that a tourist destination has. I can see that this area of Puerto Escondido is going to one day become a huge destination however for now I have the opportunity to get in ahead of the boom.”

Steve, San Diego, California


“Literally and figuratively, we are overwhelmed. Seeing our new Vivo home for the first time last night was absolutely magical, especially the palapa level. I think we must be in heaven…

Richard & Lily, Vancouver, BC
