Water at beach resort Maya Luna
For its water supply hotel Maya Luna uses rain water. Rain water falling on the roof of the bungalows is collected in large basements under the terrace. This rainwater is used for showering and flushing the toilet. Since it is not recommended to drink water from the tap in Mexico, bottled drinking water is available in the bungalows.
We use a solar system to generate electricity which we keep in large batteries. We have a generator as a backup. All bungalows have 24 hours of electricity. All rooms have an energy saving fan on the wall. The voltage in all bungalows is 110 Volt.
