El Remanso is run with integral sustainability practices that go from the 100% renewable energy use, to strict waste management process where we stand by the “three Rs”: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The waste we do produce, we do our best to reuse: We turn our non-cooked organic waste into compost for our garden, and cooked waste is destined to nearby farms to feed the pigs.
We, of course, observe as well responsible water use, we build with low impact foundations and structures, we do not use any pesticides or herbicides anywhere at El Remanso, all cleaning products, laundry detergents, kitchen soaps, shampoos and soaps we offer to our guests are certified biodegradable and we do not use plastic straws or one single-use plastics at the lodge.
