Environmental and Social Responsibility
Sonora Resort works hard to maintain green credentials on everything from water to waste. The resort’s location means they’re able to offer a number of educational tours of the area, discussing wildlife, ecology and the history of Sonora Island. They also enforce regulations for responsible fishing as one of the most salmon-rich locations in the country.
Sonora offers a high-quality wilderness experience with a great range of activities. The wildlife spotting opportunities are immense and the surroundings are beautiful. The all-inclusive and secluded nature of the resort makes it an ideal place to spend a few days.
