Environmental Sustainability Is A Top Priority
Environmental sustainability is of the utmost importance to all of us at Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel. We’re committed to protecting and preserving the beauty of our surroundings, with a host of green-friendly initiatives and programs.
Our hotel was developed in full harmony with its natural environment.
Construction involved the use of eco-friendly materials and processes, and the island’s existing rustic structures were refurbished to house the reception office, Donde Tía Nora Restaurant and Harry’s Bar. Our glamping tents are installed on removable deck structures that incur minimal disturbance to their environs.
Water is heated through solar panels; tents are cooled by natural ocean breezes aided by ceiling fans. Dining options highlight regional seafood and produce. Local employment and engagement with our local communities is a priority.
By creating strong bonds with our natural and cultural surroundings, the Isla Chiquita experience connects the traveler to the destination in a healthy, engaging and authentic manner.
Our sunny days are now even brighter!
With the acquisition of 180 solar panels, Isla Chiquita becomes a champion of clean energy. We want your guest experience to be unforgettable, exciting, and planet-friendly. This investment helps us achieve our carbon-neutrality goals, resulting in a yearly 3772 kg reduction in CO2 emissions. This is equivalent to planting 167 trees or not burning 1691 liters of fossil fuel. These high-tech panels complement our solar water heaters, allowing us to further engage the sun to create a green destination of eco-friendly experience.
