Key West, Key Largo, Islamorada – most travelers recognize these names. But unbeknownst to many, the Florida Keys is actually an archipelago of more than 1,700 islands connected by more than 100 miles of sun-soaked, palm tree-lined roads.
Because of Florida’s year-round tropical climate, The Florida Keys is a breeding ground for some of the nation’s most exotic plant and animal species. Playa Largo has taken extra steps to embrace and honor this about its natural surroundings and is creating an environment on property where guests can feel connected to the rare local flora and fauna.
In honor of Earth Day tomorrow, we thought we’d give you an inside look into the detailed, often time-consuming surveys and tests Playa Largo’s developers conducted around the site to ensure we didn’t upset Mother Nature.
And that’s just the beginning. Stay tuned because in a post further down the road, we’ll tell you how we plan to continue being one of the most eco-friendly hotels in the Sunshine State.
