Vivo Resorts & Residences Debuts New Oaxacan-Inspired Residential Concept

Vivo Resorts & Residences, Puerto Escondido’s premier luxury oceanfront hotel and real estate development, has debuted ‘Botanica,’ its newest spate of beach condominiums inspired by Oaxaca’s vibrant culture and unspoiled natural landscape. The debut continues Vivo’s steady growth on Mexico’s burgeoning Emerald Coast following a record-breaking year for the development. Botanicais defined by an oasis-like atmosphere of quiet privacy and oceanside beauty. Botanica’s Oaxacan-influenced design features lush gardens, tropical garden courtyards, ocean or mountain views from every room, landscaped islands and Vivo’s largest pools. Puerto Escondido is a growing port town experiencing an influx of incoming flight routes and interest from surfers, yet retains an authentic Mexican feel, making it the optimal choice for renters and buyers seeking tranquil tropics. The town has an atmosphere of authentic charm, where travelers can try indigenous treats in Puerto Escondido’s famous farmers’ market or in Ernesto’s, Vivo’s own farm-to-table restaurant with fresh Oaxacan dishes. For travelers seeking to further immerse themselves in the Mexican lifestyle, the resort offers Spanish lessons, in line with Vivo’s aim to integrate its activities into the community. Vivo also boasts an in-house charity, Vivo Foundation, that invests in ecological initiatives, construction projects, orphanage donations and improvements and agricultural programs that benefit the indigenous Puerto Escondido community. The resort also ensures it pays employees above standard. For more information visit
