We humans, we want it all, but we also don’t want to hurt our planet. I understand that for sure, and so do many resort companies in Mexico! Mexico has been strong on the eco-friendly mindset for years now, so there’s no difficulty in finding a property that you like that’s also kind to mother earth. Here are some of my favorite ones!
El Dorado Royale, a Spa Resort by Karisma
Karisma is a brand that knows their stuff. You can enjoy El Dorado Royale for the luxury experience, breathtaking views of the Riviera Maya, or the amazing Gourmet Inclusive experience, but their sustainability program and their team’s passion for it will be easy to see.
Hotel operations at El Dorado Royale follow the local and national level Global Sustainable Tourism criteria, not to mention, the resort’s “Green Team” handles all the aspects of taking care of this from energy use, waste, flora, fauna, and water, they minimize the impact that this resort has on the environment. Amazing, right?
El Dorado Royale also has earned the Rainforest Alliance Certified greenhouse for their farm that provides 14 tons of vegetables every single month!
Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa
Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa opened in 2014 and has made every effort to recycle, use solar energy and even compost on site to make their property sustainable and luxurious.
How much waste have they kept out of landfills, you might ask? Over 3 tons! As such, it’s no shock to learn they’ve been awarded the Travelife Gold certification!
They’ve even developed a program for planing trees, to help you sleep better at night in their DreamBeds.
Hotel Xcaret Mexico
This gorgeous, clearly inspired by nature resort isn’t in Riviera Maya, but rather IS Riviera Maya. Rivers curl through the green landscape, secret coves are waiting to be discovered by guests, and the beach is pure heaven! Hotel Xcaret Mexico blends exquisitely into the already perfect Riviera Maya area.
Even though it’s only been open since December 2017, it’s already are one of the most sustainable of Mexico’s resorts. Not only is it the very 1st resort in Mexico to be honored with the first EarthCheck Certification in Planning & Design, but it’s the 1st resort in the Americas to receive this illustrious certification! They met EarthCheck’s standards before, during, and after construction. And it doesn’t harm the fact that they grow 130,000+ plants native to the region each year to help with reforestation in & around the Xcaret eco-archaeological parks!
Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort
