sustainable tourism in the Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya has sustainable tourism options for those who join us in the desire to not only keep our planet clean but also preserve the traditions and products that set the Riviera Maya apart from other destinations. When we think of the Riviera Maya, it is hard to believe that this destination offers more than just beautiful beaches, but there is a whole treasure chest of great projects and sustainable businesses that have sprung up in the jungles and beaches in the area.

Tulum continues to be the fore runner in the sustainable tourism movement having the advantage of the Sian Kaan biosphere as its neighbour that requires sustainable and eco practices to ensure the biosphere is preserved. The communities that are in the jungle are using ancient practices and local agriculture to ensure that the resources are building the economy and teaching visitors the wonderful organic products we have in the area.

Check out some of the Tulum eco-hotels that are close to the Tulum ruins, neighbour the Sian Kaan biosphere and contribute to the sustainable living practices that are so important to the preservation of our backyard, the Riviera Maya.
