Vivo Resorts Puerto Escondido MX – Hidden, but Not for Long

Writer Sabrina Pirillo wrote a Family Fun Canada article for Mexico News & Reviews about a family friendly vacation in Mexico at Vivo Resorts in Puerto Escondido, “a hidden gem…but not for long!”

What Is Vivo Resorts?

The full name is Vivo Resorts Oaxacan Beachfront Living. According to Pirillo, Vivo Resorts is a private “gated community of luxurious condominiums and private homes featuring ocean and mountain views; the best of both worlds!”

Vivo Resorts was the brainchild of Cary Mullen, a former World Cup Downhill ski champion, Canadian Olympian, and motivational speaker turned developer.

Mullen built Vivo Resorts on Palmarito Beach, which is part of a 21-km (12-mile) stretch of untouched sandy beaches. Fronted by the warm Pacific Ocean and backed by the foothills of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range, Vivo Resorts is ideally situated.

This family friendly vacation destination is also just 14-km from the town of Puerto Escondido (population 45,000+) and only a 25-minute car ride from the Puerto Escondido airport, which accepts flights from Mexico City. Huatulco airport, which is about an hour away, also accepts direct international flights.
