I love that part of Baja! What level of participation is required, and what sort of benefit would be realized?

I did not follow the link provided in the video, I get enough e-promotions already. You can reply by U2U if you prefer.

We all know what happened to Danzante courtesy of the Villa Group. Methinks you ought to look elsewhere.

That said, the Villa property has been struggling simply because of the availability of flights to Loreto and its distance from town.

Yes, chuckie... Ecomundo was a nice place to stop in for a beer, sandwich, and a talk. Ranger Roy, his Thai bride, and a few other characters of the finest kind. Unfortunately it did not last long enough. Like a lot of start-ups in the Mulege area, you just got used to it, then in wink of an eye..it was gone.

I wish greater success for liqui's project. It seems to be in a more populated area and should draw more clients.

the eco resort was a 80's 90's concept...

Danzante was built during that era...don't hold your breath having the villa group buying you out

I wonder if an eco resort would even draw people today
It was before the internet
People today need "action" and technology

and things now are way more expensive to build and "staff"

what would the ROI be on an investment like this

Are there ANY eco resorts left in Baja right now...I wonder

I like ligui's "out of the box" thinking but I think its an old plan that just never took off

maybe build an assisted housing development for "old guys"
those make a ton of money and they seem to always be full

Good comments! I don't know of any "eco' sites in Baja, younger folk don't seem to care.....Your last thought was a good one....And I think could be a money maker....Lots of us are getting old (er) I turned 80 2 weeks ago, and are concerned about going back to Baja alone....Be interesting to put a trial balloon out there and see if they was much interest...I would be interested.I'll try to put together some thoughts on requirements for old guys...Thanks

Serious question, how does an eco-resort differ from a regular resort of the same size?

One description of eco resort



(Sustainable design, low impact, remote location near protected areas etc to name a few.)

The health benefits of spending time in nature are well-documented, as are the stress-relieving benefits of taking a vacation. Travelers looking to really get away from it all, and help conserve some of the world's most pristine natural habitats, should consider de-stressing at a relaxing and secluded eco-resort.

Good for your stress levels and for the environment, these destinations are both tranquil and invigorating, often featuring spa services and complimentary yoga classes alongside rainforest tours and water sports. And it's a vacation you can feel good about : From a private island and reserve off the coast of Zanzibar equipped with the latest eco-technology to a sustainable lodge celebrating Pueblo culture in Taos, New Mexico, all are committed to preserving the surrounding land, benefiting native communities and employing local staff.

Thanks whale-ista. I guess I'd like better a geezer resort like Bob and Susan and Chuckie are talking about.

Shade palapas with zero gravity lounge chairs. example

Rental boats with steering wheels and motors.

A tiki bar, heavily shaded with a gentle breeze blowing through and umbrella drinks. example

Somebody else to go to town for supplies and find firewood for campfires.

A supply of old boating and sportsman magazines.

Walking paths between buildings with solid footing to prevent capsizes. Especially to and from the tiki bar.

A billiards table for exercise.

Lots of comfortable chairs.

No noise, ever.

I watched the video but what is your vision?
I am interested in these types of projects in Latin America but I am curious what you envision for a development and what type of client you are trying to attract.

If anyone could develop a few small (in terms of resident population) well designed and operated assisted living/senior housing facilities in Baja that would incorporate SFandH's suggestions, they could probably make a pile of cash,
