Mahahual, Mexico

We LOVE the round design of Balamku Inn in Mahahual, Costa Maya. This eco-chic hotel is all about sustainable tourism, right down to the shampoo they provide their guests. The wind and the sun are their power sources,  all waste water supports constructed wetlands and when building they take special efforts to protect the endangered trees on their property. No wonder they were nominated one of Mexico's leading green hotels. Check out other fabulous Costa Maya hotels.

Riviera Maya Photo of the Day – Glorious hammocks!

Posted January 27, 2014 by Kay Walten in Mexican Art,Mexican Culture,Riviera Maya Photos,Sustainable Tourism

shopping in the Riviera Maya

Hammocks are probably the most popular Riviera Maya and Yucatan souvenir - right up there with gaudy, giant sombreros. They are the Mayan bed, more common in local houses than mattresses. The hammocks sold here are hand made by locals. Buying hammocks in family owned shops like this one in Macario Gomez is sustainable tourism. We LOVE lounging in a hammock with a good book or a refreshing cocktail. Discover other ways to support sustainable tourism.
