SUSTAINABILITY

Making a positive impact on the local community and helping protect the environment is at the center of our everyday activities. More glass and no more straws and plastic disposables, buying local products as much as possible, supporting environmental local projects like Sloth Conservation or Connected Gardens. Just to give you an example, we are planting almond trees in our mountain reserve which are essential for the future of the endangered green macaw. Want to help? Join us for one of our beach clean-up expeditions!

We are "Platinum Guarumo"  Certified  2022 for the Sloth Conservation Society. Thanks to them we've planted 147 trees of local species that help the sloth and fauna to move safely  in the highs minimizing the risk to walk on the ground. As part of the connectivity between the trees .we installed wildlife canopy bridges to connect habitat fragments.

Also Sakura our dog was trained to behave properly when she see the sloths and fauna.

Not Everyone knows that dead corals and shells has an important role as refugee to many living creatures and  for sand formation. Guests sometimes take away corals from the beach. We see an opportunity to explain that it's an inappropriate behavior. We create a program that we called "Back to the Sea"  where guests bring back the objects to the sea!  that, is an amazing opportunity to create awareness about about how small gestures can contribuite to conservancy.
