Mexican Jungle Treetop Escape

Mexican seaside resort, Boca de Agua, is a treetop holiday escape. With over 26 freestanding treehouse villas, this resort embraces tropical luxury living among the Mexican leafy jungle landscape.



Crafted by Mexican architect Frida Escobedo, Boca de Agua features numerous treehouse villas that are lifted above the ground using pillars aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the tropical ground floor. By installing raised villas, 90 percent of the ground floor was left intact without being disturbed.

Designed to age naturally, the raised units comprise of a sand-coloured concrete staircase with metal railings to enter the villa, with dark-coloured local Chicozapote wood for the structural walls. Locally sourced from FSC-certified forest logging program, the villas blend into the natural jungle landscape and provide a sustainable stay for visitors.

All furniture included in the villas are crafted from recycled wood from a plywood processor and designed by the in-house Boca de Agua team and local Mexican artisans. Other furniture pieces were selected from Mexican or local brands, allowing guests to source out favourite furniture pieces upon their stay.

The shining glory of the resort is the luxury Masterpool Jungle Treehouse that includes an array of luxury elements for guests to enjoy. From a private pool and terrace to the light-filled, 360-degree views, this suite is a treat.

Escobedo not only contributed to the villas but many other parts of the resort including reception, office spaces, restaurant, bar and kitchen, enhancing the connected flow and cohesion from one space to another.

Boca de Agua is a jungle escape that many guests will never want to leave. From the organic architectural form of the treehouse villas to the luxury lagoon space, Boca de Agua is an example of high-end luxury accommodation with sustainable considerations taken throughout the design and construction.
