The adult friendly El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels, by Karisma, have a “Passion for the Environment” program that is dedicated to keeping their luxury properties eco-friendly. In addition to a serious recycling program and an impressive solar power system, Karisma has a 70,000 square foot greenhouse facility that provides produce to its hotels and resorts throughout the Riviera Maya.
The greenhouses in the facility grow over 30 different types of produce including: cilantro, thyme, onions, tomatoes, honeydew melons, lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, chilies, basil, mint, and squash. By being able to produce in house, the Karina properties are able to enhance customers’ culinary experience with fresh, organic meals as well as to reduce negative emissions from the trucks that would normally have to bring in the produce.
The resorts also feature a fish market where guests can select fish from local fishermen’s daily catch to be prepared for lunch, dinner, or snacks by the pool.
