Los Cabos, Mexico (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
In celebration of World Sea Turtle Day (June 16), the 237-suite Marquis Los Cabos resort introduces a new Green Wedding Package that includes eco-friendly décor, organic food, local Baja wine selections, Green Turn Down service, and, most excitingly, the opportunity to assist in the release of baby sea turtles. Certified by the state-sponsored PROFEPA agency as a sea turtle watch and rescue site, Marquis Los Cabos protects five species of turtle eggs from laying in June and July to hatching in September and October, when members of the wedding party can participate in this ecotourism initiative. As part of the Green Wedding Package, the eco-conscious couple is provided with a bouquet of local and organic flowers for the bride, natural wedding decorations such as organic centerpieces, an environmentally-friendly bonfire, and Green Turn Down Service, which aims to exclude all environmentally harmful room elements. The wedding reception, three meals per day per person, unlimited international drinks from 11AM to 11PM, and all taxes and fees are also included in the package. Accommodations are available in an Ocean Front Junior Suite for $355 per night or an ocean-view Private Pool Casita for $595 per night.* The Green Weeding package is available from now until December 15, 2012; guests must book by December 15, 2011. The package is available for at least 30 persons or 15 rooms, 2-night minimum. For more information and reservations, please call 1.877.238.9399 or visit our website at http://www.marquisloscabos.com.
*There is a $28 cost per person for hotel-provided décor, or a $500 flat fee should the couple choose to bring their own.
As part of the Green Hotel Program, the Green Turn Down service at Marquis Los Cabos includes replacing plastic water bottles with glasses, the option of washing the linens and towels and separate organic and non-organic waste baskets. In addition to the Green Turn Down, Marquis implements other eco-friendly practices and recycling programs that reduce the resort’s water, gas, electricity, paper consumption, and waste, including using ecologically safe laundry products from Nopal.
Featured in National Geographic Traveler’s “Hotels with a Heart,” the Marquis Los Cabos donates five percent of the hotel’s annual revenue for the staff’s education and healthcare in its Marquis University. Since 2003, the resort has helped on average 20 employees a year obtain primary schooling and bachelor degrees.
