Casa Verde

Our Role to Saving the Planet

Discover yet another reason that Casa Dorada Los Cabos, Resort & Spa stands out: eco-friendly stewardship.  We’ve chosen to lead the way in Cabo San Lucas with new green programs and a firm attitude of concern for the environment. At Casa Dorada, it’s very easy to get involved in the movement to save our planet.

What We’ve Done To Be Green

Always on the forefront of new and developing trends, Casa Dorada has taken the task of environmental protection very seriously. Our new programs and initiatives – such as “A Touch of Verde,” “Casa Verde” and “Turtle Sanctuary Project” – have created opportunities to protect our sensitive ecosystem and all of our guests are encouraged to participate.

Join Our Eco-Friendly Efforts

During your entire stay at Casa Dorada, you will find ways to be green while on vacation. Our linen and towel reuse program is just one fine example, but you’ll also notice energy saving light bulbs and power control systems. You may even find out that all of our water supply comes from an onsite desalination plant.

Preserve The Local Habitat In Cabo San Lucas

We have also extended our conservation efforts beyond the hotel. Today, beach patrols and Turtle Sanctuary offer protection for sea-turtle eggs across the entire Cabo San Lucas Bay. And since 2005, we have successfully released thousands of offspring into the sea.

Let’s do our part to save the environment.

Turtle Sanctuary

Taking millions of years to evolve from a land to a sea turtle, today the Olive Ridley is considered an endangered species. Primarily due to their blind pursuit by the fishing industry, they are also equally victims of habitat overexploitation and manmade pollution.

Driven to danger by one of its food sources - the jellyfish, which resembles any one of the millions-plus plastic bags currently polluting our oceans - the Olive Ridley will often die of asphyxia after consuming this imposter.

Nesting Grounds

Perfectly shaped for millions of years, Cabo has some of the most secluded beaches – each safely away from most land-based predators. With an average shell length of 30 inches and olive green in color (darkening as the turtle reaches adulthood), the Olive Ridley is considered an omnivore with its diet consisting of everything from shrimp and lobster to small invertebrates and, of course, jellyfish.

Even though it will nest sporadically throughout the year, for those looking to observe these majestic creatures, its regular nesting periods are from July to October. Normally nesting in massive numbers, where thousands of females land the beach in simultaneous waves (known as Arribada), this trait is not found in the Los Cabos. Mostly solitary, the Olive Ridley will nest one to three times per season, each instance taking up to two weeks to produce approximately 100 eggs that are then incubated for up to 60 days.

Saving The Olive Ridley

As the Baja has grown in popularity over the past 50 years, regional governments have worked hard to protect this sea-faring friend, creating the Los Cabos Sea Turtle Conservation Program. In 2005, many of the community’s hotels, resorts, restaurants and organizations have joined in this effort, which organized the Los Cabos Sea Turtle Protection Network. In 2008, Casa Dorada was officially added to this strategic alliance. Shortly thereafter, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources granted the hotel federal permission to establish a working nursery for the safekeeping of Olive Ridley eggs, a privilege extended to only a handful of institutions in the Southern Baja.

Easy tips:

We can all do our part to make the world a better place to live. So when you’re on vacation, here are a couple of super easy things you can do to make your favorite vacation spot a little greener:

  1. Be active in linen programs by letting us know that it’s not necessary to change your sheets and towels every day.
  2. Keep track of your towel by attaching a safety pin or a tag to each towel to ensure everyone knows who is using each one.
  3. Reduce the amount of water used for bathing or showering.
  4. When you leave your hotel room, close the drapes and any sliding patio doors.
  5. Leave little toiletry bottles in the room, if unopened.
  6. Pack a permanent marker and write each person's name on the cups and bottles in the hotel bathroom.
  7. Keep bar soap wrappers and take used bars of soap home.
  8. Let the hotel management know by speaking directly to management or writing them a note that you want to conserve and that you want to participate.
  9. If the hotel provides complimentary newspapers, pass them someone else or leave them in the lobby for another reader.
