May 3, 2016

Water quality, environmental education, environmental management and safety are among the features analyzed during this qualification in order to give the leaf-shaped badges that these hotels now boast.

Riviera Nayarit, Mexico - TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders™ program has recognized several hotels this year that have proven their commitment to the environment through their strict eco-friendly policies. The list includes eight properties in the Riviera Nayarit.

"We're looking for several ways to become a more green destination by participating in several programs," said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. "The fact that hotels are pushing towards this objective with good eco practices is a big help and increases the international positioning of the destination as an environmentally friendly place," he added.

From a holistic perspective the GreenLeaders™ program analyzes and evaluates the properties and their environmental practices in order to recognize them with awards that range from Bronze to Platinum, depending on the points received.

Marival Resort & Suites achieved the Platinum Level this year along with the Hard Rock Vallarta, the top award handed out by the GreenLeaders™ program.

Hotelito Los Sueños jumped a level to Gold Level this 2016, a level also achieved by Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, The Royal Suites Punta de Mita, Royal Decameron Complex and Grand Palladium Resort & Spa. Dreams Villamagna also moved from Bronze to Silver.

Water quality, environmental education, environmental management and safety are among the features analyzed during this qualification in order to give the leaf-shaped badges that these hotels now boast.

Green Globe

And speaking of good environmental practices, just a few weeks ago the Iberostar Playa Mita was able to renew its Green Globe certification, being the only one in the Riviera Nayarit in receiving this eco-award.

"We extend our congratulations and our thanks to all of the hotels that are working in benefit of our planet," said Murphy.
