This Sustainable Resort in San Pancho Is a Relaxation Oasis

As vaccination rates increase and the world continues to open back up, opportunities for international travel are looking more promising than ever. Therefore, the next stop on our 2021 travel list is San Pancho, Mexico. San Pancho is a small town just an hour’s drive from Puerto Vallarta. It’s the ultimate relaxation destination with secluded beaches, local farmer’s markets, and a 100% sustainable resort that’s just as beautiful as it is eco-friendly. Hotel Maraica is the definition of living in harmony with nature. To learn more about this must-visit resort in San Pancho, keep reading below.

Earth-Inspired Rooms & infrastructure

Hotel Maraica’s property is equally as sophisticated as it is Earth-conscious. You’ll be able to see how the hotel rooms and structures are inspired by and made with nature – and NO plastic water bottles! The buildings are constructed with wood and straw materials that have barely been changed from their original form. The stunning property and calm culture of the town make it the perfect place for travelers to unplug and relax.

Fresh & Healthy Food

 The sustainable resort’s environmentally aware lifestyle extends to its food and drink options too. The restaurant offers a variety of fresh and healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Of course, there’s no shortage of guacamole. In addition, the property has a small garden to grow its own spices and ingredients. Not to mention, the upstairs dining area has a stunning ocean view!

Steps From the Beach & Downtown

One of the best parts about Hotel Maraica is that it’s just steps away from a private beach. You can take a daily morning walk in the sand, sun-bathe, and dip your toes in the water. The resort is a short 10-minute walk from the center of town where you’ll find a lively farmer’s market full of locals selling delicious delicacies, jewelry, art, and more.

COVID-19 Testing

Many restrictions are lifting, but it’s still important to be safe and prepared when it comes to traveling. Before leaving for Mexico, it’s important to know that you need proof of a negative COVID test to get back home to the US. Another great perk about Hotel Maraica is that they do instant testing at the resort. They have a local health official come to perform the test, and you get the results back in about an hour. It’s so easy!
