GOING GREEN

Kan-Kanán is an environmental project that means to turn into the new habitat of thousands of sea species, and will protect the coast from natural erosion. It will cover a 1.9-kilometer area parallel to the coast of Punta Brava. From above, this monumental reef looks like a huge serpent guarding the coast, giving it its name: Kan-Kanán, which means "The Guarding Serpent" in Mayan. This artificial reef is made of 1,000 hollow pyramidal structures created on a concrete and micro silica base; materials and structure that make it an environmentally friendly construction that allows nutrients to attach, resulting in the regeneration of marine life.

We have a 70,000 sq. ft. hydroponic greenhouse where we grow several types of vegetables and a selection of herbs. This is a method of growing well balanced plants. Using nutritious mineral solutions without soil, allowing plants to absorb nutrients.

Ozone systems replace all chemicals needed in the laundry room, and our filtering and recycling system converts 92% of the water used into drinking water. Besides this, we have systems that recover up to 98% of the heat produced, so we can later use it in the washing cycles.

Our hotels count with energy-saving air conditioners with electrical converters. We are interested in the elimination of on-off cycles for increased efficiency, longer life of the components and help reduce power consumption by 50%, resulting in the reduction of CO2, thereby helping the environment. All the water heating systems at our hotels are solar powered, which allows us to reduce CO2 emissions.
