PUNTA CARENERO IS A FORMER CATTLE RACH, PREDOMINATELY FEATURING ROLLING HILLS AND BLUFFS. THE SITE WAS PARTIALLY DEFORESTED IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY, CREATING LARGE GRASSY AREAS. NONETHELESS, IT FEATURES LARGE HARDWOOD TREES AS WELL AS A VARIETY OF PALMS, SEA GRAPES, CITRUS, AND MANY OTHER DESIREABLE SPECIES OF TREE AND PLANT.

THE SITE IS SURROUNDED ON THE WEST, NORTH AND EAST BY THE CARIBBEAN SEA. IT INCLUDES APPROXIMATELY 3600 FEET OF OCEANFRONT COMPRISED OF A MIX OF BEACHES AND BLUFFS.

THERE IS A LARGE VARIETY OF BIRDLIFE, INCLUDING SEVERAL SPECIES OF PARROT, KINGFISHER, ORIPENDULA, TANAGER, PELICAN, IBIS, AND WOODPECKER.

OTHER FAUNA INCLUDES NESTING SEA TURTLES, BLUE MORPHO BUTTERFLIES, TREE FROGS, IGUANAS, SLOTHS, AND THE OCCAISIONAL CROCODILE. THE SURROUNDING SEAS ARE INHABITED BY RED SNAPPER, YELLOWFIN AND BLACKFIN TUNA, DORADO, MARLIN, WAHOO, LOBSTER, OCTOPUS, PORPOISES, MANATEE, AND MUCH MORE.

PUNTA CARENERO IS BUILT IN AN ENERGY INDEPENDENT MANNER, WITH EACH HOME FEATURING ITS OWN SOLAR POWER, RAINWATER COLLECTION, AND WASTE TREATMENT SYSTEM. NOT ONLY IS THIS THE OBVIOUS CHOICE TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT, BUT IT IS ALSO MORE RELIABLE AND COST EFFECTIVE THAN THE USE OF TRADITIONAL UTILITIES. IT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT OUR COMMUNITY DO ITS PART TO PROMOTE THE USE OF THE BEST AVAILABLE ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES.
