10 of the Best Eco-Friendly Hotels in South America You Need to Visit

When it comes to eco-friendly hotels, South America is in a league of its own. Sometimes these places were designed to be eco-friendly out of necessity: If you’re in the middle of the jungle, you might not have many options other than being off-grid, for instance. Most of the time, it was also a conscious decision to build a hotel that would allow guests to appreciate the stunning natural environment while ensuring it will still be there for future visitors. That’s why they came in the first place, after all.

So what makes for eco-friendly hotel design? The focus is on sustainability. Strategically placed windows make the most of natural light and help regulate temperatures. Trees provide shade to keep things cool while providing a habitat for wildlife. Showers are water efficient and wastewater is treated responsibly. The building materials used are sustainable and locally sourced for the most part. And the building blends in with the environment. With these principles in mind, here are the best designed eco-friendly hotels in South America.
