Two Unlimited Vacation Club resorts are part of this initiative from Grupo Experiencias Xcaret, “Reforestando Nuestro Hogar” to strengthen the image of the destination and help the environmental improvement of the area.
With the support of the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes and affiliated companies with the Asociación de Hoteles de la Riviera Maya developed the initiative “Reforestando Nuestro Hogar” (Reforesting Our Home), to plant more than 22,000 plants of different species in the central ridge of the federal highway from Xcaret to the city of Cancun.
The campaing “Reforestando Nuestro Hogar” aims to strengthen urban and tourist image of Solidaridad, Puerto Morelos and Benito Juarez and homogenize the green areas along the road, to cover areas currently without vegetation.
Hotel companies that are located on the route have joined with donations, matching spaces in front of their facilities and providing maintenance services. The selected plants are native species like Ciricote, Cedar, Maculis, Ceiba, Akits y Palms.
The tasks are coordinated through garden areas of Experiencias Xcaret, which already has covered much of the project and are working in Puerto Morelos, advancing towards Cancun. It’s planned to conclude the project this year, although manteinance works will continue.
Companies participating on this project are: Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa, Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda, Blue Diamond Riviera Maya, Catalonia Playa Maroma, Ciudad Mayakoba, El Cielo Residencial, Grupo Grand Coral Master Developer, Grand Riviera Princess, Grand Velas Riviera Maya, H10 Ocean Maya, Hacienda Tres Ríos, Hotel Marina El Cid Beach Resort & Spa, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Karisma Hotels, Mayakobá, Now Sapphire Riviera Cancún, Palace Resorts, Riu Hoteles, Royal Resorts, Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancún, Selvamar, Valentín Imperial Maya, Vidanta Riviera Maya and Villas Amarte Maroma.
Also, the project had collaboration of nurseries like Mundo Verde, San Marcos, Tulipanes, Yaan Yaab, and other companies like Moto Sierras de Cancún and Andreas Stihl, S.A. de C.V.
25 Years Reforesting
Grupo Experiencias Xcaret celebrates 25 years contributing to enviromental care through reforestation in parks and public spaces in Cancun and Riviera Maya.
In february 1992, Xcaret’s nursery was opened for the breed of 30 native species, with a total production of 8,000 plants each year. Today the nursery breeds more than 200 species with a production over 200,000 plants a year. All this production is destinated to reforest areas in their parks and some public spaces in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, Tulum, Ciudad Chemuyil and Valladolid, Yucatán.
We are proud that two UVC Resorts, Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun and Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun, are participating on this initiative to make aware and protect the environment. We invite you to enjoy the native vegetation during your journey from the airport to the hotel.
