Ecological preservation at the heart of dynamic Boca de Iguanas development
April 11, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MANZANILLO, Mexico (Apr. 11, 2007) – Environmental conservation and clean, low impact living are the inspiration for Boca de Iguanas, the newest beach front development found in a curved bay along the Costalegre on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.
Located 40 minutes north of Manzanillo International Airport (ZLO), the multi-use development of Boca de Iguanas, which broke ground in the fall of 2006 on 18 acres of prime beach real estate, offers 20 single-family ocean view homes and 60 condos nestled in the jungle, a beach club and al fresco restaurant on 1,000 meters of cream sand beach framed by spectacular sunsets and star-spangled skies. A boutique hotel with an eclectic mix of 10 suites reflecting contemporary Mexican design, and 40 rustic eco-chic cabanas hidden in the hills, along with a holistic wellness spa featuring healing therapies and yoga are also in the works.
Boca de Iguanas is the first mixed-use project for Moksa Development, a Mexican corporation under the guidance of Californian Robert M. Oveson. The vision is to offer an unparalleled 21st century vacation/lifestyle experience in a pristine, ecologically-progressive gated community with 24 hour security, alternative clean energy sources – such as individual solar power arrays for electricity and solar heated water for each home – and underground utilities, all situated around a rare mangrove ecosystem that flows through the property.
“Mangrove ecosystems all over the world are endangered and being plowed under by developments,” said Robert Oveson. Coastal mangrove systems act as massive sieves that filter saltwater into fresh water, prevent soil erosion, and provide crucial nesting grounds and shelter for a myriad of aquatic, aviary and reptilian species. “That’s why our primary focus at Boca de Iguanas has been to preserve and protect this mangrove, and implement a code of lifestyle that reflects clean living,” Mr. Oveson explained.
Life at Boca de Iguanas revolves around a dynamic community center inspired by the traditional pueblito at the heart of Mexico’s colonial heritage. Stand-alone “green” homes starting at 3,000 sq. ft. and $375K are designed in contemporary Mexican architectural style and set against gurgling fountains, laneways that arc through blossoming local flora, and the backdrop of a stunning reconstructed church against a piercing blue sky. The result is a pristine setting that allows residents and vacationers to experience the stunning natural beauty of the area while indulging in first-class amenities.
To maximize on the “greenness” of the community, plumbing will connect to community gray water recycling systems, and an onsite sewage treatment plant. Custom homes with flexible floor plans and one-on-one personalized detailing between architect and owner reflect a perfect marriage of indoor and outdoor living: expansive courtyards, built-in natural cooling systems, and welcoming patios, ample storage space, artistic brick domed ceilings, enclosed garden areas and bathrooms under the stars.
Boca de Iguanas is for couples and families seeking wellness of being, physical activities, cultural encounters, and luxurious surroundings packaged in a complete high-end vacation experience.
