North Ambergris Caye, Ambergris Caye, Belize
The Portofino, a 16 room romantic hideaway striving for barefoot elegance, is dedicated to conservation and using local products. The hotel offers guests the option of reusing their towels and sheets. They are also encouraged to turn off lights (all of which are LED) and air conditioners when not in the rooms. Trash is presorted for recycling, and when possible, waste is used as compost. The food in the restaurant is purchased from the local community, with fisherman delivering fresh seafood daily, and decor is also purchased locally from Belize, Mexico and Guatemala.
