Sandos Mexico Resorts Now Eco-Certified

Sandos Mexico Resorts Now Eco-Certified
Sandos Hotels & Resorts - Sandos Caracol Eco Resort

Go ahead, Sandos Hotels & Resorts, give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back, high-fives all around, a standing ovation, and maybe a pinch to grow an inch.

In a Nutshell: Sandos Hotels & Resorts has announced that three of their resorts, Sandos Cancun Lifestyle Resort, Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos and Sandos Playacar Beach Resort, have all received their first Rainforest Alliance Certification this year, joining Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, which has been recertified several years in a row and just received its highest ever score of 97.27 percent this year. All four Sandos resorts in Mexico are now officially Rainforest Alliance certified.

So what the heck is Rainforest Alliance Certification? The Rainforest Alliance is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that works with many industries (not just travel) to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods in order to counter some of the biggest challenges we face today – deforestation, climate change, systemic poverty, and social inequity.

Sandos, whose Mexico properties are also all Travelife Gold Certified, joins an increasing number of resorts and hotels worldwide that achieve these important certifications by taking steps to reduce the carbon footprint of tourism, which is now a primary concern of a growing segment of travelers. Many all-inclusive resorts now incorporate the surrounding environment (instead of plowing it under), work closely with conservation groups to protect local land-and-marine wildlife, and have programs that help local communities as well.

However, when you buy something through our retail links, there's no additional cost to you but we do earn an affiliate commission which keeps the lights on here, and provides more incentive for us to drink and debauch. So buy some stuff :-)
