Wild Ark: reconnecting us with nature

We live in a day and age where people are literally connected to electronic devices day and night. Most people suffer from separation anxiety if they happen to leave a room in their home without clutching their smartphone as if their life depended on it. I think it’s safe to say, we have forgotten our natural instincts or rather blotted out the call of nature with white noise; But the smell of pine, the sound of birds or taste of clean water can never truly be erased.Learn more :

Anybody can go to the New York City or Las Vegas, and how much different is it from the place you left? Next time you plan a vacation, why not aim not only to get away but also to reconnect with nature and support an eco-friendly location. Try looking up Rancho La Puerta, Mexico. You’ll most likely uncover a place of deep green with various species of birds naturally on the move with the seasons. The resort is perfectly in tune with nature boasting energy conservation, water recycling and a natural garden that supplies the kitchen with fresh organic stock. Nestled perfectly into nature just the way we used to live.Learn more :
