Eco-Friendly at the Islands of Loreto
Through the use of solar panels, seawater purification systems, recycling, and more, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is succeeding at providing guests with the most luxurious vacation experience while remaining as environmentally-safe and energy-efficient as possible.
“We are proud of the many eco-friendly practices we’ve implemented at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto. We are dedicated to doing our part to preserve the area’s natural beauty and cultural history by minimizing our environmental footprint as much as possible,” says Owen Perry, Owner, and President of the Villa Group.
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto sits on the world’s second largest protected National Marine Park. The resort is dedicated to taking care of the area, so it has decided to partner with a federal agency that specializes in ecosystem conservation, known as the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) to help them do that.
In addition to those environmental efforts, Mr. Perry has invested in the infrastructure of the resort and has initiated a universal recycling program. The recycling program recycles a multitude of items including aluminum, plastic, water, and glass. Also, solar energy panels are installed on the roof of each building and energy efficient LED lighting is used throughout the property.
The resort also uses a seawater purification system which stretches approximately 30 miles long and throughout the town of Loreto. This water recycling system takes water from the Sea of Cortez and cleans it so that it can be used throughout the resort and to water the fresh produce that is grown on the farm at the Islands. The food that is harvested from the local crops is used at all of the restaurants at the resort, giving each of the meals an authentic, fresh, and homegrown flavor.
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is also the home of the award-winning Danzante Bay Golf Course; sustainability measures have taken place around there as well. Plants have been relocated throughout the area to maintain the native landscaping, flora, fauna, and other natural resources that protect the environment. The resort also ensures that all plants and the greenery on the golf course is treated with organic fertilizers and no chemicals.
This Villa Group property prides itself on being a leader in efficiency, sustainability, and luxury. They not only take care of their guests but they also take care of the environment. We want everyone to know that they are in great hands when they stay at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto!
