Costa Palmas, a sustainable development

that opens a new tourist corridor in

México, Cabo del Este.

COSTA PALMAS COMMUNITY

Costa Palmas is a residential resort development dedicated to diversifying and renewing the tourism experience of Baja California Sur and Mexico. It became the gateway to the Sea of Cortez, promoting the emergence of a new tourist corridor: the East Cape. 

The Costa Palmas community has been built by promoting social development with the participation of the East Cape’s local communities, thus ensuring that all development initiatives are sustainable and support the well-being of every member.

For this reason, Costa Palmas has invested in community improvement projects that fall under the three pillars of sustainability: 

ENVIRONMENTAL

Costa Palmas is a resort that focuses on environmental conservation. We conduct monitoring studies regarding water quality, the coastline, and protected areas in order to prevent, reduce or mitigate environmental impact. Additionally, we invest in conservation programs to preserve native plant and animal species.

SOCIAL

Costa Palmas has positively impacted the community for over a decade.

Costa Palmas’ objective is to collaborate with the community and the public and private sectors to further the social development of the East Cape through various educational, athletic, and health-related programs.

ECONOMIC

Costa Palmas has sparked economic growth in the area that promotes the development of Baja California Sur.

Costa Palmas represents an investment of more than US$2 billion, as well as an important source of employment for the community. This strive to boost local development turns Costa Palmas into a social cohesion project and a space for opportunities to improve the quality of life of the people in the community.

OUR FIRST ACTIONS

In 2015, Irongate, a real estate development company based in Los Angeles, CA, acquired Desarrolladora La Ribera (formerly Cabo Riviera). We then started to work with members of the Ejido La Ribera mainly made up of farmers, former owners of the portion of the land where Costa Palmas is now located. As a result of this relationship, Costa Palmas developed community initiatives consistent with supporting the abundant agriculture in the region. 

That same year, we launched a pilot program in local schools called “LEARN, GROW, EAT & GO!” a project based on the Junior Master Gardener program from Texas A&M University. This program marked the beginning of a series of educational efforts, initiatives, and activities made by Costa Palmas to further the community’s social, environmental, and economic development.
