The area of forest preserved by Cristalino Lodge absorbs thousands of tons of carbon from the atmosphere. By visiting the Cristalino Lodge you are contributing to the preservation of the Cristalino RPPN, which yields numerous benefits for the climate and protects the biodiversity of the region.
Moreover, every night that you spend at the Lodge helps to guarantee the employment of 7 staff members, which in turn contributes to responsible tourism as part of the regional economy. Visits to the Lodge also contribute towards the important education, research and conservation efforts of the Cristalino Ecological Foundation.
Cristalino Lodge is conserving a reserve covering 11,399 hectares of primary forest - an area almost twice the size of Manhattan Island, which sequesters thousands of tons of carbon from the atmosphere. These efforts were recognized when the Lodge won the Condé Nast Traveler World Savers Awards, one of the leading sustainability awards in the global hospitality sphere.
