It combines the tranquility of virgin beaches and a blue lagoon in the middle of a natural protected zone that radiates beauty, providing first-class hotel services and amenities. Hotelito Desconocido is absolutely committed to preserving these surroundings and making as little impact as possible on the environment — the hotel runs on solar power by day, and at night is illuminated solely by candlelight.

There are few places in the world where one feels closer to nature and so far from the modern world than at the Hotelito.
