When you’re a member of Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto by Danzante Bay, you can't help but be taken by the region's naturally beautiful landscapes. The rolling slopes of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains and awe-inspiring vistas of Loreto's islands in the distance make the eco resort a sight to see. Since its inception, the resort has made it its mission to preserve the natural environment, keeping its ecological footprint to a minimum, and giving back to Mother Nature as much as it takes. As one of the best eco resorts in Mexico, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto employs a variety of environmentally-friendly initiatives to celebrate the relationship between Mother Nature and her visitors.
What makes this one of the best eco resorts in Mexico is how it makes use of Mother Nature's offerings in a sustainable and productive manner. The roofs of the eco resort are lined with solar panels, a program that puts the over 300 sunny days in Loreto to good use without polluting the environment. All of the resort's palapas are fashioned from palm leaves harvested from the property's trees. In addition, a variety of ingredients used in the delectable cuisine served at the resort's restaurants is farmed from an onsite vegetable and herb garden. The resort even went as far as opting for a saltwater filtration system instead of a 30-mile pipeline from the town of Loreto that would have meant the disruption of the region’s delicate ecosystem. The system utilizes salt water from the Sea of Cortez to dramatically reduce the resort's fresh water consumption, first cleaning it and then dispersing it across the resort to take care of its irrigation needs.
Even at the start of the eco-friendly resorts construction, preserving the region's unique flora and wildlife was a major concern for those engaged in the design and development of the Danzante Bay complex. Many of the plants that had to be relocated to make place for structures and golf course greens were transplanted elsewhere, decreasing the resort's ecological footprint and preserving the natural beauty that is so synonymous with Baja. Those that couldn't be replanted were composted and used to nourish the resort's grounds.
The Greywater Recycling program at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto cleans and utilizes water waste from sinks, showers, dishwashers, and bathtubs to hydrate the resort's grounds. There is also an aluminum, glass, and plastic recycling program, and all of the resort's informational pamphlets are published on recycled paper. Organic biodegradable straws are provided at the eco-friendly resorts restaurants, and fabric bags are given at Palmita Market. Finally, due to the location of the eco resort in the protected National Marine Park, certain types of vessels are prohibited from entering Danzante Bay. This not only helps to keep pollutants to a minimum, but this also enables the survival of a diverse range of marine life.
At Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, keeping their ecological footprint to a bare minimum is an important aspect of their commitment to the environment. They've done this by installing solar-paneled lights outside, LED lighting in all indoor spaces, and by installing a smart air-conditioning system in each room, which turns off automatically whenever the door to the balcony is opened, thus restricting the system from working too hard as it tries to cool the outdoors.
TPC Danzante Bay, the golf course that shares the beautiful property with Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, does its part to assist with the resort's environmental initiatives. They employ organic fertilizers instead of toxic chemicals and use treated water to keep the course lively and green. Members will also notice how the plants surrounding the course are the same as those that blanket the region, a step taken to protect the delicate ecosystem of Loreto.
Villa del Palmar Loreto has a lot to offer, notably all of the features that make it one of best eco resorts in Mexico. As a member, you have all this to be proud of and so much more!
