13 September, 2012

The Mayakoba resort is a
luxury development located south of Cancun in Mexico’s pristine Riviera Maya
that has received recognized by the Rainforest Alliance for its outstanding
advancements in sustainable tourism. It is the first time this organization has
ever honored a tourism destination. 
Mayakoba earned this impressive distinction thanks to continued efforts
by the resort complex to institute a wide range of water and energy saving
practices,as well as a number of other sustainability policies and procedures,
including promotions that encourage visits to local communities.

Andres Pan de Soraluce of
OHL Development,stated,“We have been working with the Rainforest Alliance
since 2010 to comply with the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria’s
internationally recognized recommendations for socially,environmentally and
economically sustainable tourism,and we encourage other tourism properties in
Mexico to do the same.”

The Mayakoba resort
complex,just north of Playa
del Carmen real estate
,actually consists of three independently owned
resorts,the Fairmont Mayakoba,Rosewood Mayakoba and Banyan Tree
Mayakoba.  The development has done
a remarkable job of combining luxury and comfort with the natural environment,
at the same time putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly
initiatives. The property is surrounded by an amazing ecosystem that has served
as the focus of the project throughout its development,with great care given
to maintaining the surrounding landscape and wildlife,which is essential to
achieving the vision of sustainability that the entire Mayakoba project was
founded on.

The Mexico Ministry of Tourism is also working with the Rainforest
Alliance to support its efforts to educate the business owners and the general public
throughout southern Mexico about the concept of adopting sustainable tourism
initiatives. At this time,more than 30 hotels and resorts throughout Quintana
Roo,Campeche and the Yucatan Peninsula have already initiated socially and
environmentally sustainable practices after holding training sessions with
representatives from the Rainforest Alliance.
