Eco Friendly Vacations

Our initial visit to the Riviera Maya in 1990 was motivated by cave diving and exploration. This introduction to the environmental and geological diversity found in the Riviera Maya led us to the Costa Maya and Yucatan, important destinations that influenced the development of the Mexican Caribbean coast. The passion has not left us nor has it dwindled. It has continued to grow and deepen as we discover more local secrets, more historical locations and uncover more about the Riviera Maya, Costa Maya and Yucatan.

If you are seeking destinations and vacation rentals that preserve the local environmental and cultural diversity, these beautiful places to stay will be at the top of your list.

To continue your eco and cultural vacation planning, read these articles that highlight eco friendly tours and things to do plus enjoy our Travel Guide – Green Travel Guide to the Riviera Maya – written by locals. This guide shares some of the most precious places in the area. 

Our hearts have been forever effected by the human, cultural and environmental wealth found here. Let your hearts be effected as well.
