Paya Bay Resort: Our Green and Organic Efforts

OUR GREEN AND ORGANIC EFFORTS

Ever Greener

As we continue to develop the property, one of the key concepts that guides us is harmony. Harmonious Development means, for example, leaving refuge areas for the indigenous wildlife. Paya Bay has a strict tree conservation policy in which every possible alternative option is considered before removing a tree. Our on-site nursery provides hundreds of new palms, trees, and decorative plants that we add to property each year. We are slowly replacing our incandescent light bulbs with energy saving types. As prices drop, we plan to migrate to LED lighting which not only saves energy but is also much more environmentally friendly than compact fluorescent lights.

You can help us with this effort! Energy-saving bulbs are still quite expensive here in Honduras (up to $10 USD each). If you live in a country where energy-saving bulbs are cheaper, please bring a few with you. The ones what have "natural" light are preferred to the "white light" ones. We'll discount the cost from your bill or pay you for them. It takes a (global) village!

Going Organic and Local

We currently have a project underway to identify the herbs, fruits and vegetables that we can grow right here on the property in order to provide ultra-fresh, organic produce for our guests. Depending on the time of the year some of the locally grown produce include papayas, watermelons, cantaloupes, nonis, coconuts, hot peppers, limes, pineapples, oranges, mangoes, plantains, cilantro, basil, and mint.

The fresh flowers you will find in your bungalow are all grown right on the property in our ever-expanding flower garden.

Feel Good. Be Happy.

The Crystals

The Crystals

The resort sits atop a huge vein of energy-enhancing quartz crystals. A Mayan Shaman explained that one of the reasons people report feeling so good at Paya Bay is a result of the presence of these crystals.

The Payas

The Payas

Paya Bay was once their home and their energy can still be felt in the woods and radiating from the rocks. Peaceful hunter-gatherers, the Payas lived in harmony with the land and the sea.

The Garífunas

The Garífunas

A beautiful part of our multi-ethnic culture here in Roatan are the Garifunas. Never enslaved and only slightly Christianized, the Garifunas retain much of their original African culture and spiritual practices.
