We believe that the decisions we make today make a lasting impression on our future.   That is why we are proud to be a leader in green building in Oaxaca and the award winning Huatulco area, the first tourist destination in the Americas & only the third in the world to receive the Green Globe International Certification for environmental stewardship in 2000.

Green Globe is based upon the Agenda 21 Plan, originally endorsed by 182 heads of state at the Rio Earth Summit of 1992 and provided a set of principles for local, state, national and international action on sustainable development. This resulted in Agenda 21 for the Travel and Tourism Industry: Towards Environmentally Sustainable Development, which listed an action plan for a number of overall objectives for the industry.  Visit http://www.greenglobe21.com/ for more information on this program and certification.

The Huatulco area is home to an incredible diversity of flora and fauna. The Parque Nacional Huatulco created in 1988 encompasses 6,375 hectares of lowland jungle and 5,516 hectares of marine environment. There are 723 species of animals within the park boundaries including birds, reptiles, fish, and numerous others.

Some of the fun and interesting eco-tours in the area include scuba diving, hiking, bird watching, lagoon tours, turtle sanctuaries, mountain biking and whitewater rafting.

Proud to be Green

Our developments are planned with environmentally friendly initiatives, including:

  • Solar heating hot water
  • Motion sensory lighting
  • Dual flush toilets
  • Properly managed waste and water
