When we look at Puerto Vallarta vs Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca Mexico you'll find that Puerto Escondido is a place very much like Vallarta in the days of old. It has incredible beaches, idyllic weather and an authentic and relaxed lifestyle. Not to mention million dollar views for much less than a million.

Let’s talk about real estate in Puerto Vallarta vs Puerto Escondido. Everything that makes real estate in Puerto Vallarta so desirable also rings true in Puerto Escondido. The weather is stable throughout the year. You’ll enjoy ideal tropical ocean temperatures in an area that is safe and unmatched in natural beauty. But unlike Puerto Vallarta today, you’ll find beachfront properties and ocean view real estate in Puerto Escondido that is priced within reach.

Welcome to Vivo Resorts and Oaxacan Beachfront Living. Just like you, we considered real estate in Puerto Vallarta. But the high price of beachfront properties made it questionable from an investment timing perspective. So, we set out to find the “next” Puerto Vallarta. We drove nearly the entire Pacific coastline of Mexico until we found a hidden gem, a magnificent surfing location on Oaxaca’s Emerald Coast…Puerto Escondido!

Puerto Escondido, which is only an hour from Huatulco, is an emerging part of Mexico that is still virtually untouched. There are no all-inclusive chain resorts, huge development sites or over-populated tourist areas. Puerto Vallarta vs Puerto Escondido you ask? There’s no comparison. Puerto Escondido is a quiet beachfront town that still has soul.

In Puerto Escondido we’ve created Vivo Resorts, a luxury oceanfront resort community that can be compared to the best in Puerto Vallarta. We invite you to call at 1-844-777-8486 and discover Vivo Resorts Oaxacan beachfront living.


This untouched Pacific Coast beachfront location in Mexico offers early Vivo owners exceptional advantages.

  • Affordable Mexico Oceanfront Condos and Private Villas for sale.
  • Detailed luxury and levels of refinement you won’t find anywhere else at this price point.
  • Remarkable, panoramic Pacific Ocean views from every suite.
  • Tranquil and secluded beach town with unequalled natural beauty.
  • Laid-back lifestyle the way Vallarta used to be – with no touristy crowds and not over-commercialized.
  • Vibrant growing community with Government planned local infrastructure improvements.
  • Historically, this beachfront location in Oaxaca Mexico has the best weather anywhere in Central and North America.


Pride of ownership is a common theme with our Vivo residents and like you; Vivo Resorts simply won’t compromise on quality. That’s why our luxury oceanfront condos and Private Villas all feature only the best materials and aesthetics. From high-end kitchen appliances and “soft-close” cabinetry to real wood flooring with stone and marble accents.

The open concept layouts are designed to optimize the use of space and provide exceptional Pacific Ocean views, with outdoor and indoor living areas complimenting each other. Visit the Pick Your Dream page to view décor packages.


We chose Puerto Escondido Mexico because it offers the best year-round weather in an ultra-low risk hurricane zone, travelling involves a minimal time zone shift, and it is within 4-6 hours flying time of most major North American airports.

Our passion goes well beyond weather that is just good enough to ‘escape winter’. We set out to find 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, most often warmer than Puerto Vallarta and Hawaii


Vivo 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. The developer, Cary Mullen, and many of the leadership team are also residents, because Vivo began as a personal vision for lifestyle and community.

What Vivo owners and guests are saying


“I have been an owner since 2012 and could not be happier. As I said on completion of our condo, “Dreams are even better in reality.” Beautiful beachfront location, wonderfully friendly and attentive staff, and nature at its best. What more could you want? This is paradise!”

Jerry H – Vivo Owner


“After doing a lot of research and eventually going 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


“Resort is beautiful with a nice view of the beach, the water is warm, great customer service. There are two nice pools and both are very clean. The food at the resort is great, recommended. The resort is 10 minutes away from Puerto Escondido but really relaxing; the release of newborn turtles into the ocean was awesome experience. Really nice and recommended.”

“Vivo Resorts is a gem situated in miles and miles of pristine beaches. The rooms are gorgeous with every comfort. The food is excellent with 2 delicious dinner entrees offered each evening. The pace is relaxed and the visitor will need to slow down and simplify. Yoga, Spanish, paddle boarding, and other activities are offered on an a la carte basis. We sampled a few and found them to be excellent. There is a brackish lagoon nearby with an overwhelming variety of birds including wild parrots and wood storks. The hotel staff speaks excellent English but some knowledge of Spanish will greatly enhance your experience exploring the area.”

5 out of 5 – Ruth, Chicago IL


“Amazing gem!!! I enjoyed this place so much that I am looking into buying a condo or building a house! The staff is amazing – good mix of me having to speak Spanish and them helping me with their knowledge of English. The food was delicious and delivered to my condo or eaten out by the pool and private beach. I really felt treated well and deeply enjoyed my time alone in this paradise!!”
