Marquis Los Cabos Offers “Green” Weddings

Los Cabos, Mexico – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

In celebration of World Sea Turtle day, 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.

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.
