While Earth Day is April 22, it’s never too early to plan an Earth Day trip to one of these eco-friendly properties.

 

Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya

Situated on 590 acres in Riviera Maya, Mexico, the property works with several local organizations on sustainability efforts. Weekly, guests have the opportunity to meet with resort biologists to discuss the local coral reef restoration project. The resort hosts a turtle conservation program, in place in 2010. The property uses electric boats and carts to avoid emissions pollution.

 

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino

A first and only of its kind on the island, the Resort Wildlife Ambassador program prioritizes animal welfare. Through Camp Hyatt, young guests have the opportunity to participate in the program. On Earth Day, the resort hosts a coastal cleanup beginning at 7 a.m.

 

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa is one of two Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certified resorts in Hawai’i. The property implemented various sustainability initiatives:

 

  • Partnering with Environmental Solutions, Soil Thrive and Maui Visitors Bureau on a three-month pilot program to aid in landscape and lawn health
  • Repurposing items including cardboard, egg cartons, toilet paper rolls, paper bags and corks to make toys for parrots living on the property
  • Installing a rooftop photovoltaic system, which reduced the property’s energy usage by 38 percent in the last 12 years

 

Lovango Resort & Beach Club

This private resort, set on 45 acres, works toward protecting the local wildlife. Through its Rescue to Restore program, the resort focuses on restoring endangered coral species throughout the island. The resort uses solar and generator power and looks to enhance its solar capabilities. Seawater is converted to drinking water on site using a desalination process.

What are Deconstructed Hotels and Where Can You Find Them?

As travelers look for ways to slow down, be present and be a little more mindful during their trips, some hotels and resorts tout a new accommodation concept: the deconstructed hotel. Just like a deconstructed dish separates all of the dish’s individual ingredients so one can experience each separately but still enjoy the overall effect of the whole, a deconstructed hotel breaks down a property into its separate components, requiring a traveler to move between each in a more mindful, present manner.
