The Mal Pais region is made up of rainforest-covered hills that roll down to the sea, along a coastline with lovely beach coves nestling among the rocks and long, fine sandy beaches that are heaven for surfers.
Because Altos de Mal Pais is located in these lush green hills, it isn’t rare to spot howler monkeys, capuchins (white-faced monkeys) and magnificent exotic birds, such as the blue jay and scarlet macaw.
As for the Cabo Blanco reserve, it is a veritable paradise with diverse flora and fauna: deer, howler monkeys, capuchins, agoutis, armadillos, coatis, coyotes, ocelots… From a boat, in the reserve’s maritime section, it is possible to see huge 7-meter manta rays, turtles and, although more rarely, humpback whales. There is also a huge variety of seabird species such as pelicans, frigate birds, seagulls, etc.
Mal Pais is a true haven of peace for Man, but also Mother Nature. In a place such as Mal Pais, it is important for a building project to consider its coexistence and connection with nature in order to integrate harmoniously and find the right balance with the surrounding environment. This is the reason why we have decided to work with the architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe, whose sustainable buildings have made him famous.
