Our Mission and Vision





 Reconnect  •  Renew  •  Rejoice





La Duna Ecological Vision:


Human beings are part of Earth, and the Earth is part of us. Closeness to Nature is what’s best for our physical, mental, and spiritual health. Protecting Nature while consciously networking with other Earth stewards can lead to the creation of small businesses that fuel and strengthen an economic alternative for sustainable life models.


Our mission is to be a peaceful gathering place in Nature where people offer and receive educational experiences that are fun, inspiring, profound, sharable and unforgettable!
As people feel connected to a place and among each other through direct experience,
a sense of belonging and care develops naturally.


All of the activities hosted at La Duna are intended to regenerate energy, renew creativity, and reconnect with life and others, to enhance knowledge of oneself,
 and our connection to the world around us.





La Duna is immersed in an old and wise majestic cacti forest. Multicolored sacred mountains at her back open to an open blue horizon of sky and sea.


La Duna was built as a model for ecotourism, a small family and friends run business.  We collaborate with other local families and businesses to provide a unique recreation and educational destination. Our focus is to  raise consciousness about the preservation of our natural environment for its sacred beauty, health, and sustainable business potential.
 



Several non profit organizations, as well as small local businesses collaborate at La Duna to provide the menu of services and experiences. 
Your business supports their conservation efforts, as well as connects you to a locally conscious network of people creating a healthier way of life.
