PRINCIPLES AND VALUES
Asociativity between producers
Organic / Agroecologic
Bartering of knowledge
In order to fulfill our purpose, we developed a system based on triple sustainability, in which, through certain principles and values, we regularized our activities to generate a positive impact on the development and cultural preservation of the community.
HEALTHY AND LOCAL FOOD
Thanks to the solar panels, we take advantage of the rays of our sun that besides giving us a good tan also helps us generate green energy and reduce our energy impact by approx. 50%
We have LED bulbs, which help us consume 25% of the electricity we would consume using conventional bulbs.
In a city as sunny as Merida, heat can also be used to heat water through solar panels and enjoy a good shower without using so much energy.
We ask our guests for awareness in order to reduce our water consumption and thus help to preserve and care for the aquifers!
To clean a normal pool it is necessary to apply chlorine constantly and this does us a lot of damage. Our pool has a natural cleaning system which helps your skin feel better and fresher. Besides not polluting our body and the earth with so much chemical.
In Mexico every day we generate 117,000 tons of garbage, of which 70% go to rivers and forests and ravines. To help reduce the amount of waste we have an effective waste management system and we seek to raise awareness in our guests and community about the importance of reuse and recycling.
80% of air pollution is emitted by vehicles, causing thousands of deaths per year due to our poor air quality, can you believe it? We promote green mobility to reduce the generation of CO2 in the atmosphere by renting bicycles with which you can travel the city without polluting the planet.
No to plastic!
Every year more than 8 tons of plastics are dumped into the oceans, which are also overexploited! We invite our guests to use the water bottles that we bridle upon arrival, so they do not have to buy plastic bottles while they are touring.
In conventional tourism only about 20% of the income in local businesses remains. This is why we promote tourism organized and managed directly by the community, so that they can retain most of the income and not foreign companies, and the tourist knows closely the culture and traditions of the community.
COMMUNITY BASED TOURISM
Traditional tourism destroys local culture, degrades the environment and disguises the community with establishments of foreign products. We seek to promote eco-tourism in areas of conservation that promote cultural and ecosystem diversity, respecting the community, culture and natural areas.
The cuisine of Mérida is one of the most recognized at national level, which you can find in our dishes, as well as varieties of local fruits and vegetables, which help to preserve the gastronomic diversity of our country.
We work with artisans, carpenters and local artists to promote local cultural identity. Many of our furniture was restored to have new life and others were built with different types of recycled wood.
Preservation of Native Plants
In Mexico there are around 2,557 species and subspecies in the risk category (extinction, threat, special protection). We seek to help preserve our species of native and local plants, so you can find some in our gardens.
