At Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, we are committed to a variety of environmentally-friendly practices to support and promote sustainable tourism efforts and social responsibility. We are lucky to be located in a place of incredible natural beauty and are proud to do our part to preserve both the land and sea environments around us for future generations and the creatures that call Los Cabos home. Below are some of the ways we work to promote sustainable practices at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos.
- Rainforest Alliance Verified™
Secrets Marquis Los Cabos earned this designation for its commitment to reducing its environmental impact within the resort and the surrounding community. This mark is awarded to tourism businesses that adopt best management practices and meet specific criteria developed and/or endorsed by the Rainforest Alliance.
- Water Desalting Plant
The Water Desalting Plant at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos is a vital initiative at the resort. This plant pumps in ocean water and sends it through a process to remove the salt from the water. Upon completion of this process, the clean, filtered water is used as the main water supply for the resort. In turn, Secrets Marquis is able to refrain from using the local water supply and preserve water.
- Ecological Soap
This environmentally friendly practice allows the resort to reduce its use of chemicals by providing guests with all-natural soap, made from cactus, right in the resort’s laundry room.
Compost is made on site from the uneaten and unused vegetables and organic matter that is left over from the kitchen. The compost is then used as fertilizer in the resort’s gardens. The use of compost removes chemical fertilizers from the resort, providing the vegetation with all natural fertilizers.
- Turtle Protection and Release Program
Each year between the months of May and August, Secrets Marquis Los Cabos is dedicated to protecting the turtles that nest their eggs on the resort’s beachfront. Once the turtles hatch, resort guests are invited to participate in the turtle release. At this time, staff and guests protect and guide the newly-hatched turtles back to their natural ocean habitat.
When you choose Secrets Marquis for your next vacation, you can rest assured that you’re making a socially and environmentally responsible decision. Learn more about sustainability here and book your stay with Secrets Marquis Los Cabos!
