Playa Viva, Juluchuca, Mexico

Why It’s Unique: The eco-friendly Playa Viva is north of Acapulco on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Three tree-house casitas completely built with sustainable materials; each have a bedroom and full porch for dining and lounging, and the master development plan calls for a beach club, lounge, and 40-room boutique hotel, plus solar-generated electricity and hot water.

Access: Series of stairs, ramps, and bridges.

What to Do: Tour the resort’s 200 acres, 80 percent of which is a private nature preserve.
