At Paradero, we believe that extraordinary guest experiences go hand-in-hand with sustainability, community development, and conservation. By immersing guests in nature, we instill reverence towards the land. By employing local hands, we absorb generations worth of knowledge and storytelling. And by channeling simplicity through design, we advance the good-for-the-earth philosophy that less is more.
From the beginning, we’ve adopted an intuitive approach to sustainability. We factored it into our decision-making process from the design and construction stages to our ongoing operations.
In addition, we deliberately chose a plot of land that was previously farmed (though had not been cultivated for many years) so as to do no further harm to the environment, leaving more of our beloved Baja untouched. Next, we partnered with a multi-talented team of architects, interior & landscape designers to incorporate sustainability into every physical aspect of our project. From the way our guestrooms are oriented in nature, mitigating the harsh effects of the sun and encouraging natural air flow throughout the space, to the reproduction of indigenous species in our garden.
In every thing we do, we are committed to leaving the world better than we found it. That is why you won’t find single-use plastics or non-biodegradable products in our hotel.
How we’re making an impact
Guests are encouraged to inhabit our community, partaking in unique experiences that are aligned with the culture, values, and heritage of Mexico. Our philosophy entails having the full support of our community and providing meaningful employment and growth opportunities. It’s for this reason that we actively sought out our community’s input, permission, and enthusiasm in our project. We also facilitated impactful collaborations (including farming initiatives and recycling programs, among others) with locals. The majority of produce and food products at our hotels are sourced locally, and we pride ourselves on being on a first-name basis with all our partners. Every single individual from the fisherman who supplies our daily catch to the cattle ranchers in the Sierra La Laguna.
