In March 2009, the Tailwind Jungle Lodge became the first certified sustainable eco-lodge in Mexico. This certification through Sustainable Travel International had been a goal for the lodge since its inception and represents the Jacobi family's commitment to natural living and sustainability. At the Tailwind Jungle Lodge, we embrace a holistic approach to sustainability that includes three overarching elements:
The health of the natural world
The health of the San Pancho community: culturally and economically
The health of the Tailwind Jungle Lodge and our ability to make low-impact living!
Realistic, comfortable and cost effective.
We are proud to be a part of the thriving and international community of San Pancho. Our hope is to support and set an example for local businesses as we protect and connect travelers with this natural paradise. We are committed to cultivating a presence that is eco-conscious, community-oriented and culturally mindful.

Current Projects in Need
A must see in San Pancho is our community center, Entreamigos (translation: between friends).
Founded in 2007, by Nicole Swedlow, the center has become an example of what can come of culturing positive relationships between the visitors, expats and the local community.
Entreamigos encourages visitors to the center and also welcomes groups or individuals who wish to get involved in volunteer projects.
