Luxury Travel can be "Green" too - La Cocotera Eco Resort



Green is the new black...even in the world of travel! Luxury eco resorts are popping up all over the place and the morphing of "environmentally-friendly" and "luxury travel" couldn't have come at a better time.

Our featured resort this week is La Cocotera Resort, an all-inclusive luxury eco resort in El Salvador.



Located on the beautiful shores of La Barra de Santiago in El Salvador, La Cocotera Resort aims to support the local people and environment while offering visitors picturesque accomodations, fresh food and lots of relaxation. One big plus of the resort is that it is far away from big crowds or touristy areas. A main focus of eco travel is educating visitors about the importance of our environment and how beautiful nature can be. By experiencing nature in such a positive way, eco resorts such as La Cocotera hope to inspire and encourage travelers to do their part in saving the environment.

Besides many nature tours, birdwatching, kayaking and other adventurous activities, the resort offers visitors the unique opportunity to release baby Olive Ridley turtles in to the ocean as part of a special turtle release program.



According to the website, La Cocotera eco resort was built by locals using local natural materials such as palm fronds, sustainable teak wood, plant vines, natural stone and hand woven fabrics. The resort also utilizes solar energy for all hot water and has its own state-of-the-art waste water recycling system. Everything is environmentally safe down to the soaps, shampoos and cleaning products. Visit www.lacocoteraresort.com for more information and for reservations.

you have a very interesting blog..just visited the website and it really looks relaxing and eco-friendly.
btw, there's one eco-friendly luxury spa resort that I know which is located at Houston, Texas and this is La Torretta Del Lago spa and resort. It has own self-contained recycling program and a state-of-the-art water treatment facility.
