Sustainable tourism projects at Puerto Valle

In Kallpa we are always supporting programs that help and contribute with the education and protection of the environment and this time we tell you about the sustainable tourism projects at Puerto Valle.

In recent years, environmental awareness has led to great changes in consumer habits , and consequently the recycling of waste to minimize the impact on the environment.

When you think ” green ” bottles have known to be carriers of creative messages . They have already been used as bricks for green building ( earthship ) or for mounting on them and cross oceans : the case of David Rothschild who crossed the Pacific Ocean on a catamaran of 18 meters long constructed from plastic recycled bottles.

With so much creativity on the table, Marisol and Nicholas Di Costanzo Sciorto , were determined to put their two cents worth in. Since 2010 they manage Puerto Valle, a small boutique hotel , where they arrived to put their mark and focus on the little details, because that is what counts. The hotel is strategically located just 55 km from Posadas airport . Looking to the Paraná River and with a privileged access to Northeast Ibera Natural Reserve, the hotel aims to identify this unique ecosystem through the Laguna Valley .

“We took the example of David Rothschild, who focused on the buoyancy of the bottles. We needed a platform to observe animals, and began to fantasize about a floating structure held up by plastic bottles,” explains Nicholas. So the hotel implemented a recycling program that allowed to reduce significantly the volume of trash and accumulate the valuable bottles. After two years of hard work, Puerto Valle had enough material to make the structure a reality.

Today all guests visiting the Laguna Valley can enjoy the unforgettable “floating” between capybaras , caimans and birds , knowing that the bottles of water consumed during the visit to this vast ecosystem, hide a message that only requires imagination and wit to be revealed.

Sustainable farm for raising alligators. Yacaré Porá

Another of the sustainable projects is Yacaré Porá. Located in Puerto Valle property in the northeastern province of Corrientes Yacaré Porá is a sustainable farm for raising alligators.

In order to protect the broad-snouted caiman and black caiman, local endangered species, the project also seeks economic and sociocultural valuation of wetlands where alligators live with other species.

Through a program of conservation and sustainable use, Yacaré Porá can generate valuable resources and time necessary for the integrated conservation of correntinos wetlands.

The harvest of wild eggs ranching and enhancement of ecosystems made in this sustainable development allows maximum production with minimum environmental impact. The project also contributes to the recovery of populations in areas where the species has been eliminated or reduced, and the socio-economic development of the region.
