Sandos Hotels & Resorts is proud to announce that Sandos Cancun Lifestyle Resort, Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos and Sandos Playacar Beach Resort have all received their first RAINFOREST ALLIANCE CERTIFICATION this year.
These three hotels join the brand’s other Mexico-based property, 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. With this latest news, all four Sandos resorts in Mexico are now officially Rainforest Alliance certified.
To add to this achievement, all four resorts have also been awarded the TRAVELIFE GOLD CERTIFICATION as a result of their high Rainforest Alliance scores.
Sandos has created many initiatives and programs to make these certifications a reality, and resort guests can even get involved with many of them on their vacation!
Some of the hands-on eco-friendly practices at Sandos include:
—Sea turtle conservation programs through the protection of their nests and baby sea turtle release when they are hatched
—Protection and repopulation programs for deer and macaws after their rescue
—A Mini Farm of rescue animals, where children can feed animals that have a second chance at a better quality of life
—Organic gardens and plant nurseries to harvest tropical fruits and grow endemic plants for later relocation
—The creation of the SANDOS FOUNDATION, an organization dedicated to forming programs that benefit employees, the community and the environment
—Recycling programs, responsible waste management and reduction, and a wastewater treatment plant whose resulting water is used to water resort gardens
—“Say No to Straws” campaign to help reduce the amount of plastic on beaches and in the oceans
—Beach cleaning programs with Sandos Foundation volunteers, also inviting guests to join the activities
—Recommendations for sustainable practices for guests during their stay and back home, such as the responsible use of energy, towel reusage, and a “Don’t Feed the Wildlife” policy
—Support to local indigenous communities who sell their handicrafts at Sandos resorts
—“Pack for a Purpose” program at all four Mexico resorts so guests can donate school supplies and clothing for people living in nearby communities
