The primary objective is to use tourism as a tool for both obtaining and safeguarding the endangered rainforest that envelops our surroundings. Our commitment to sustainability extends to the very foundations of our infrastructure, employing renewable materials for construction that have minimal environmental impact. Additionally, we integrate solar panels to facilitate water heating, advancing our reliance on eco-friendly energy sources. Advocating for the environment, we champion the use of locally sourced biodegradable products and organic foods, cultivating as much produce on-site as possible. Our stringent no-plastic policy underscores our dedication to reducing environmental harm. From organic cleaning products to bath amenities, our commitment extends to every aspect of our operations. Further contributing to local welfare, we exclusively employ local staff, not only fostering their education but also extending our efforts to educate the local community and our guests on sustainability, cultural awareness, and environmental preservation.
