Ecological and sustainable policies. These include:
Private Wildlife Refuge - 75% of the Cascadas Farallas Waterfall Villas property has been set aside to form a private reserve as part of the Baru Rainforest wildlife corridor (a task that was initiated by ASANA for connecting Baru with the Corcovado national park). The largest single cause of animal extinction is loss of habitat. We want to do much more than off-set our carbon emissions by protecting one of the most unique habitats on earth - a waterfall rainforest environment.
Reforestation: We plant 100s of hardwood indigenous trees. WE collect seeds from the rainforest and raise rare trees every year. We also plant indigenous food trees for the monkeys and the birds that live on our grounds.
We have a Carbon Neutral program allowing guests to be involved in the sacred paractise of planting trees and learn about the rainforest.
