Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa is dedicated to supporting the health and welfare of our community – including our natural environment. Read more about some of the people, organizations and causes that are important to us, and how you can help support their missions.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) announced Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa has received the ISO 50001 certified by AENOR México. Cabo Villas is the first resort in Mexico to receive the respected classification.
The ISO 50001 signifies the implementation of energy management systems and maintaining a high level of energy standards and requirements to make a positive contribution to the global environment and the world we live in. The ISO 50001 supports organizations to use energy more efficiently in order to operate effectively, as well as help conserve resources and tackle climate change.
Four components of Cabo Villas' energy management system include its solar panels, desalination plant, light bulbs and air conditioning chiller. The hybrid solar system heats the overwhelming majority of the water the resort needs for the swimming pools and the rooms, and allow the resort to reduce its annual CO2 emissions by 90 tons a year, the equivalent of 29 cars driving 18,000 miles per year. The desalination plant produces two-and-a-half times as much water as the former equipment, and runs just eight hours per day compared to 18 hours per day for the former plant. The end result is more water in less time and less energy consumed. The new light bulbs and air conditioning chiller utilize less energy with increased results.
Cabo Villas joins an exclusive group of luxury hotels from around the world which have the ISO 50001 status, including JW Marriott in Washington DC, United States, Twentytù Hi-Tech Hostel in Barcelona, Spain, Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I in Madrid, Spain, NH Hotel in Berlin, Germany and Heritance Ahungalla in Sri Lanka.
Over the past 15 years, Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa has been grateful to be a part of a variety of caring foundations and charities in the Los Cabos area.
The Los Cabos Children Foundation’s main goal is to provide medical assistance for children in the Los Cabos area suffering from cancer, heart defects and other serious illnesses.
These children have little or no chance without treatment and medical assistance. A typical heart surgery for a child costs $10,000 (USD), while a year of cancer treatment totals $20,000 (USD).
Cabo Villas invites you to join us in a rewarding experience with the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation. During your stay, $1 USD per day will be included on your total bill, which will go directly to helping these wonderful children. We sincerely thank you for thoughtfulness and generosity!
For those of you who would like to contribute more than $1 per day to these children, the LCCF is grateful and appreciative of your kind gesture. Please let the front desk personnel know your preferred donation amount during check-out.
Please visit this amazing organization at www.loscaboschildren.org.
(For those members and guests who want to pass on the donation, simply inform our front desk personnel upon check-out).
This is Julián. He is an incredible young man who is fighting for his life. Julián contracted leukemia a few years ago. Through the efforts of the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation and a number of very talented and dedicated doctors in La Paz, he has received the treatment necessary to hopefully return to good health.
A fun-loving youngster, Julián is 14 years old. He and his family live in Cabo San Lucas. Julián likes playing soccer and video games, especially with Alex, his best friend since kindergarten. Julián also enjoys playing the drums, and he wants to learn to play piano. When he grows up, Julián wants to be a chef, a drummer and a pianist.
There are many other children in southern Baja in desperate need of help. Baja California has the highest rate of children’s leukemia in all of Mexico, and even though progress is being made, the fact is the odds are slim for many of these kids. Treatment costs range from $5,000 USD to $50,000 USD per child, and the Mexican insurance programs are stretched very thin.
A pediatric cancer center is in place at the Salvatierra Hospital in La Paz, with Dr. Altamirano spearheading the project. Dr. Altamirano received his training in the United States, and moved to La Paz from Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico to be involved with this challenge. His passion and vision are clear, however he needs help. The operational costs of this facility are immense.
Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa is committed to this effort. We have a personal attachment to these kids, as well as the LCCF and the new children's cancer center. We have visited with the children and seen the looks in their eyes. We've also met the doctors and have seen the incredible work done in the cancer facility. We will continue working with the LCCF to change the world one child at a time.
The children of the southern Baja need your help. Please contribute to the LCCF by clicking here “Donate Now”. In the "dedication" section, please indicate "Julian" and/or "La Paz cancer center", as a way of indicating your preference of all donated funds to go to the children’s cancer center in La Paz.
Thank you and God bless.
Día de Muertos ("Day of the Dead") is a longstanding Mexican tradition of paying respects to those loved ones who have passed away.

Join us in November to witness this unique display of Mexican heritage!
