Located in gorgeous Playa del Carmen,
Mexico,the Viva Wyndham Maya all-inclusive resort has expanded its efforts at
environmental sustainability and has been officially verified by the Rainforest
Alliance,one of the world's leading environmental non-profit organizations.
The resort received the award in recognition of its efforts to minimize its
Eco-footprint and dedication to sustaining the local cultures and surrounding
communities and is further proof of Mexico's firm grasp of current
international issues and its efforts to find solutions.
The Rainforest Alliance verification is
a popular tool for tourists to locate and support destinations that are
environmentally conscious. The organization works with hotels and resorts
around the world to help train staff members and management about ways to
reduce their impact on the environment.
“Viva Wyndham Resorts,and specifically
our Maya property,are extremely proud to be part of a group of tourism
businesses that carry the Rainforest Alliance Verified™ mark and a
powerful initiative that contributes to the strengthening of the tourism
industry's efforts towards the environment,” stated executive vice president
Rafael Blanco Canto of Viva Wyndham Resorts. “The [resort] is located in one of
the most breathtaking destinations in Mexico. By obtaining this seal of approval,
the property has adopted new environmental policies and by involving staff and
guests,we can further promote sustainable tourism and preserve the natural
beauty of our resort.”
