Guests who visit Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto see first-hand the magnificent beauty of the region we call home. Maintaining those unspoiled views, crystal clear water and rich, healthy environment is a vital piece of who we are. Because of this, we have put in place a series of environmentally-friendly initiatives that help us leave as little environmental footprint as possible. These include:
Our roofs are lined with solar panels that collect and store power from our more than 300 sunny days each year, greatly reducing our electrical needs
The resort uses a seawater purification system that collects and purifies water from the Sea of Cortez for use throughout the hotel, which mitigated the need to create a 30-mile water pipeline from the town of Loreto to Danzante Bay
We created a grey water recycling program, which helps with irrigation on the property (including our vegetable and herb gardens) and other maintenance tasks
We grow many of our own chilies, produce and herbs on site, which are used in the resorts three restaurants
We recycle aluminum, glass and plastic
In addition, our location within a protected National Marine Park limits the size and power of boats that traverse our waters, keeping pollution from watercraft to a minimum and allowing the numerous species of marine life to multiply.
