Balenbouche Estate, St. Lucia

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Estatehouse If you’re on St. Lucia, have been working yourself to the bone and need a break from it all, click the link below.

The Balenbouche Estate, a family owned property and St. Lucia Heritage Site, is a former sugar cane plantation. Under the care and management of the Lawaetz family since 1965, it has been constantly developing into a desirable tourism destination for the island.

Through the use of low tech (fans rather than a/c, mosquito nets instead of screens), solar water heating, re-directed rainwater, and conservation a very natural level of comfort is achieved. They have worked to enhance their environmental, conservation, and alternative energy programs with the goal of becoming largely self-sufficient in the near future.

The community involvement and educational projects sponsored and or supported by Balenbouche are a very strong part of what makes this a special place to be (see their “activities” page at link below). They’re working hard for responsible tourism and we give them our green thumbs up!

El Encanto – Santa Cruz de Miramar, Mexico

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Encanto1.jpgEl Encanto Eco-Hotel and retreat center is located just 96 miles north of Puerto Vallarta and only 14 miles south of San Blas. This perfect location enjoys a microclimate that remains largely green and rain free November through May. The creatively renovated accomodations at El Canto are shaded by ancient hardwood trees and surrounded by beautiful exotic plants.

El Encanto is situated on seven acres of lush tropical gardens that front the Pacific Ocean and share the site with the renovated ruins of a 19th century hacienda. Historically it served as home to a pre-Columbian settlement; today it is a rustic retreat center with an artistic temperment that attracts people from all walks of life.

El Encanto strives to operate a successful retreat center offering quality and affordable workshops and seminars in the fields of art and physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The abundance of delicious healthy food and herbs produced in the organic gardens are shared in the daily meals. Their working philosophy helps to support their local community as well as sustain the indigenous cultures of Mexico, and their ancient rituals.

A beautiful place with a wonderful feeling – really well done. Two big Green Thumbs up!
