Rich in History, Sustainable in Development
Tulum has always been well known for it’s untouched white sand beaches, lush jungle and undisturbed wildlife. While most properties on Tulum beach bear titles such as “eco-friendly”, “green”, and “eco-chic” very few places actually practice true sustainability.
Here at Casa de las Olas we provide sustainability that you can trust as one of the only places on Tulum beach that has successfully combined the charm of boutique accommodations with forward-thinking, sustainable development practices. We are true to our word in our deep commitment to preserving and protecting this beautiful yet delicate ecosystem we inhabit.
Our Sustainable Initiatives
ArchitectureWith a structure designed over 40 years ago, we are one of the oldest properties on Tulum beach. Casa de las Olas was intentionally built to capitalize on natural Caribbean breezes keeping our villa cool and comfortable without the use of air conditioning. All of our suite furnishings are locally sourced and crafted with love.
Energy ConsumptionCasa de las Olas is powered completely by the sun utilizing our state-of-the-art solar system. We only use a generator on cloudy days (and there aren’t a lot of them) when we are unable to harness the power of the sun.
Environmental ConsciousnessAt Casa de las Olas everything from our cleaning products to bathroom amenities are organic. All food provided is locally sourced.
Platinum LEED ReviewedA LEED certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building and a Platinum Rating is the highest certification that can be attained.
