Considering the World

Treading Lightly on Our Environment

The Pueblo Magico of Todos Santos is part of a unique ecosystem, an environmentally sensitive area with indigenous flora and fauna not found anywhere else in the world. At Calycanto we realized that we accomplish more with less. CalyCanto is an environmentally sustainable project, undertaken only after extensive cooperation with SEMARNAT, the governmental organization responsible for preserving the region. Limited native vegetation was removed or altered during construction. The CalyCanto Master Plan exceeded all local requirements, including by the installation of what we believe to be the most advanced gray water treatment facility in Todos Santos. This was done to mitigate the taxation of limited water resources and runoff. All of our waste water is reused for vegetation. While we are currently utilizing the local electrical provider, we are assessing plans to convert to solar power. Only biodegradable cleaning products are supplied on the premises. Guests are provided with canvas bags for shopping and all organic waste is composted. A percentage of all rental proceeds will be allocated to support a to be formed organization which will be created for the primary purpose of protecting the fragile dunes.

Welcome to the website for CalyCanto, offering Todos Santos vacation rentals and information about the area. We operate a boutique community, currently consisting of 3 casitas in Todos Santos, each with ocean views, about 2.5 miles from the town center, on the way La Pastura, a world class surf break. We at CalyCanto are passionate about eco-friendly travel that provides us with succulent surfing, pristine beach combing, intimate restaurants, exotic bird watching, super special sunsets, horseback riding on the beach, local tours and activities that support the local community. We believe in causing the least harm (approaching zero) while doing business. Environmentalism, sustainability and a commitment to protecting the natural environment through activism are part of our mission as we work to continually reduce our carbon footprint. We hope you'll follow our adventure here, on Twitter and on Facebook while you enjoy your coffee (or tea) or drink a Pacifico (if you've already made it here). If the tequila gets passed around the table too much, gringos might try and spell CalyCanto like calicanto, calecanto, or cal y canto. However you spell it, you are always welcome at Calycanto Casitas. Thank you for visiting.
