SUSTAINABILITY

PRESERVING THE BEST OF MEXICO

For Hotel Xcaret Mexico, the sustainability is one of the great pillars of the project. This is the capability to maintain the biological and productive aspects of the place, and therefore, encourage the preservation of natural resources in conjunction with the local activities.

In order that everything flows harmoniously, we build a hotel with actions that watch over the environment and our communities, generating a great atmosphere of hospitality and comfort.

The architectonical eco-integrator design with which has been worked every detail of the hotel, is adapted to the tropical landscape, with the purpose of looking after the habitat in a responsible and sustainable way. Reason why Hotel Xcaret Mexico, is the first hotel in the American Continent to achieve the EarthCheck certification in Planning and Design. This certification recognizes a set of elements such as architecture, construction and sustainability projects.

The EarthCheck Building Planning and Design Standard (BPDS) and Precinct Planning and Design Standard (PPDS)

This process provide the guidelines, tools and indicators used for evaluation and certification; also helps designers, architects and developers during the planning and design phase of the sustainable buildings.

"EarthCheck Design Standards provide an integral approach to the project, from planning, design and construction, to the operational life cycle of the tourism asset".

"It is pleasant to see innovative tourism operators like Experiencias Xcaret take a leadership position by becoming the first EarthCheck Design project in the American Continent".

“A good design must be holistic and must incorporate operational metrics based on the performance of a complete systems approach. EarthCheck standards are based on the principles of Agenda 21. They are structured to help tourism projects to become not only great places to visit and work, but also to improve the life quality of local communities".
