BaY of TeNaCaTITa

LIFESTyLE

Roughly 40 minutes north of the Manzanillo international airport on the Costalegre, steamy jungle meets creamy sand beaches in the Bay of Tenacatita. The beaches along the Bay of Tenacatita are relatively unpopulated expanses dotted with palm trees and palapas (thatched roofed buildings), providing the perfect spot for quiet relaxation and meditation. On the interior of the Bay of Tenacatita is a five-mile arching beach of fine sand that connects the town of La Manzanilla with Boca de Iguanas. Boca de Iguanas is nestled on the north end of the La Manzanilla beach in Tenacatita bay amid a protected mangrove estuary in an area which is more tropical than most of the Costalegre. The town of La Manzanilla is small: one main street runs parallel to the beach and loops around at the far end of town where several expansive homes rise above the bay. La Manzanilla is fast becoming an escape for North Americans seeking a laid-back lifestyle and stunning surroundings; the thriving expat community already supports a New York

style art gallery, cultural center, language school, humane society and several restaurants (Mexican, American Style & even Pan-Asian). Further on along the bay, the wide creamy sand at Boca de Iguanas provides plenty of opportunities for gathering shells and interesting rocks that are washed up by the gentle surf. At the north end of the beach, enter the cave with an altar to the Virgin Mary. Explore the mangroves that knit the local river system, a body of water teeming with wildlife of the swimming and flying sort. Relax on the beach and watch as fishermen work their trade in the frothy waters. The small village of La Manzanilla (1,000 population year-round), is located 10 minutes south by car (or a 35 minute stroll on the beach) of Boca de Iguanas, has experienced incredible growth of North American tourism in the last few years. Also nestled along this large bay are two very different vacation properties: the all-inclusive Blue Bay and Punta Serena resorts and the exclusive 2,000-acre El Tamarindo Golf & Beach development.

BeaCH

The tropical beach club at Boca de Iguanas is best described as "rustic organic". a free form infinity edge pool sits right on the swimmable beachfront and snakes seductively amid the palm trees, encircling some in a wash of cerulean blue. Natural elements and local materials are highlighted in the construction. The club's restaurant and bar are right on the creamy, fine sand woven among the palm groves with spectacular views under the shade of a thatched palapa on the wide cantera stone terrace. The hotel's eclectic thatched beach huts, will deliver a "jungle chic" vacation experience in a natural setting. These casitas are tucked on the beach among the palm groves, and the mangrove estuary with an abundance of coconut trees, brilliantly hued bougainvillea, shade bearing almond and colorful hibiscus. "Outdoor pursuits in untouched nature" is a theme at Boca de Iguanas with a natural 60-foot high rock climbing wall on a cliff overlooking the beach, horseshoes, volleyball, bird-watching on the preserved mangrove estuary that runs throughout the property, boogie boarding and surfing right off the Boca de Iguanas beach. our turtle camp will also be a huge draw during nesting season from November to February as onsite biologists will monitor eggs and ensure the hatchlings reach the safety of the ocean. The hotel's magnificent beach and jungle suites provide unequaled luxury, privacy, and unparalleled views of the tranquil Tenacatita Bay which reflect the colors of the tropics while maintaining a clear devotion to ecology and nature.

ENTRE PALMERAS

The contemporary Boca de Iguanas casas, villas, condos and hotel found in the Entre Palmeras area feature complete and partial ocean views between towering coconut palms that provide shade and nesting for local birds. The spacious custom homes of Entre Palmeras that lie in the shade of the soaring coconut palms at Boca de Iguanas are up to 4,500 square feet in size and are characterized by clean, modern Mexican design. These ample living spaces feature ocean, partial ocean and beach views and exemplify the fusion of eclectic Mexican coastal contemporary architecture with indoor/ outdoor living spaces and distinctive bold color washes. Many homes include water elements designed to cool air passing through the signature two story open atriums into the rest of the houses. Entre Palmeras is for discerning owners who treasure privacy, as home lots are set apart from each other and face an open field studded with palms which provide shade for a large Jacuzzi pool, organic garden and the wellness spa. A small beach is located at the front of Entre Palmeras and the main beach at Boca de Iguanas is just a few steps away over a bridge erected above the mangrove.

EL PuEBLO

The colonial pueblo at Boca de Iguanas is set amid a lush carpet of manicured green grass and features cobblestone walking paths that wind between the manicured shrubbery, gardens, and flower beds bordering each property. Inspired by the classic form of a Spanish colonial mission town, El Pueblo will comprise an old-world Mexican hotel, haciendastyle condominiums, casas and villas with names that reflect traditional heritage ­ such as Casa del alcade. a one mile jogging track encircles the open events garden and main plaza, where a community center inside a beautiful replicated Mexican church lies adjacent to a covered arcade framed by stone columns and a gorgeous hand-carved cantera fountain. The custom homes of El Pueblo feature up to 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space and draw their inspiration from the classic homes in a traditional Mexican pueblo. Colonial architecture is reflected in curved doorways, high brick domed ceilings, rustic furnishings and hand-painted tilework. Homes are distinctly original - works of art born of the collaboration between passionate local architects and each home owner.

Mexico's Pacific coast boasts a rich array of diversity from rocky, cactus-lined cliffs to expansive tropical jungle, isolated beaches, small mountains and lush lagoon systems. It is said to have the same latitude as the Hawaiian islands with a rainy season that lasts only four or five months of the year from July to late october. The forests of the Costalegre are among the richest tropical dry forests in the world, supporting more than 700 species of vertebrates and almost 1,200 species of plants. One of the most threatened ecosystems in the world also thrives here in this delicately balanced chain of life: the mangroves that exist within the lagoons, rivers and streams throughout the Costalegre. Coastal mangroves, like the 400 acres in La Manzanilla and small system located on the Boca de Iguanas development terrain, are part of a complex and fragile ecosystem that connect terrestrial and marine species in a nurturing web of life. A plethora of plant, insect, bird, mammal and reptilian species live in the waters surrounding healthy mangroves and find a safe haven among their woven branches. The deep and acidic, moist soil underlying the mangroves are rich and very productive. Large communities of invertebrates feed on the organic matter deposited at the base of mangroves. Mangrove trees are unique in their ability to remove excess salt from the water in which they thrive, enabling them to live their entire lives in a salt water environment, such as the beach location of the Boca de Iguanas project. Because they grow so close together, their roots and branches become large nets that work as filters letting water flow but stopping harmful sediments that damage reefs. Thus, they help protect the coastline from erosion, storm damage, and wave action while providing a sheltered habitat for crocodiles, herons, key nursery areas for fishes and other wildlife. But mangrove habitats around the world are being destroyed as infrastructure from tourism encroaches on swampy land. Commercial shrimp farming destroys many due to expansion of cultivation ponds which dry waterways and lagoons. One of the mandates of the Boca de Iguanas project is to work in conjunction with ecological conservation groups to investigate and study the impact on these delicate ecosystems and work out solutions to keep them thriving. as an eco-hotel, the project hopes to use the small mangrove system onsite as an enclosed environment to research plausible sustainable solutions that can be introduced around the world to other endangered systems. The devastation of the mangroves wrecks havoc on vital and thriving aquatic forest ecosystems that support abundant food chains from coastal to reef life, and affects many communities, both animal and human.

BDI Ecological Plans

1. 1% of revenue generated will be sent to an ecological fund, which will be used for the onsite and local conservation efforts as well as environmental education. a)1% of sales applies to current and future revenues from: I. Sale of real estate (condos and homes), new and future re-sales. II. Hotel room rental revenue III. House rental revenue IV. Food and Beverage revenue 2. The Boca de Iguanas area will be considered an animal sanctuary. Security and hotel staff will enforce the rules animals to be protected include but are not limited to... Iguanas, Birds, Crocodiles, local mammals etc. 3. Habitat for local animals are being created to encourage biodiversity. a) Local plants have being planted to encourage migratory and local bird species nesting and return. b) each house includes "cave" areas to sustain bat populations, which aid in reduction of insects such as mosquitoes, flies and gnats. 4. A seasonal sea turtle nursery has been set up to patrol the beach from Boca de Iguanas to La Manzanilla Onsite biologists will patrol the beaches and relocate nests laid by female turtles to ensure they are not eaten by predators of the four legged or human kind. once nests are reburied within the safe guard of the Boca de Iguanas property, guests can become involved in the release of newborns as they hatch, and learn first-hand the incredible cycle of life. a) BDI will purchase an ATV for usage at the camp and furnish materials for a small turtle camp. b) Volunteers and visitors are encouraged to help with the camp. c) We are looking for partners, both financial and work related in this camp (universities, conservation groups, local residence and visitors etc.) 5) BDI will create bilingual ecological education signage to be posted around the bay informing people of the importance of the mangroves, the local ecosystem and the penalties associated with destroying the ecology. 6) BdI will work with conservation organizations to create children's educative pamphlets to teach the local children the importance of not damaging the environment. 7) The development will maintain on staff a certified biologist to manage conservation efforts and oversee overall health of mangrove, and make suggestions to protect and ensure the survival of the mangrove. 8)The mangrove will be tested through out the year to monitor its' health. 9) The mangrove will be cleaned of trash, and items that might obstruct the flow of water to the ocean in rainy season a)The mouth of the mangrove will be opened to the sea during rainy season. 10. The beach area will be cleaned daily; cars are not allowed on the beach (except for emergency issues) to avoid sand compacting at the river mouth. auto traffic can compact the sand, making it difficult for the mangrove to open naturally. 11. Approximately 100 meters of mangrove will be planted onsite at BDI. 12. all sewage created at the project will be treated by a certified biological sewage plant with the cleaned water used for irrigation. a fully contained simple to operate, cost effective and aesthetically pleasant Natural Waste Water Treatment System to clean wastewater to reuse standards without posing undue harm on the surrounding environment. 13. Grey water recycling to encourage less waste and more reuse of the precious resource. using "green cleaners" ­ biodegradable detergents, shampoos and soaps ­ will mean that runoff from showers, dish washing and even pools can be utilized to water the gardens. 14. Rain water collection systems are also being designed to help out irrigation water usage during dry months. 15. BDI will establish a community recycle program for plastics, glass. An onsite compost of organic materials will supply the nitrogen-rich top soil to feed and enrich the garden year-round and also limit waste going into local landfill sites. 16. All houses and the hotel at BDI will include solar energy arrays to supplement existing power grid structures and lessen the impact on the surrounding environment with a clean, natural energy source. using the sun's rays to provide electricity and hot water will lower the electrical bill, but will also mean Boca de Iguanas will rely upon using less of another limited resource: natural gas. 17. All houses are designed to Bio-Climatic design... allowing maximized air flow, keeping the houses cool & reducing the need for air Conditioning. 18. The master plan has been designed to maximize airflow through the property. 19. Master plan has large green areas to promote local animal life, including large areas that will be keep in their natural state. 20. Chlorine use in the swimming pool will be limited as newer eco-technologies, such as ozone and salt based systems will be used to keep the pools clean.
