Hotel Xcaret Mexico (7/36)

At Hotel Xcaret Mexico, natural beauty takes center stage with cenotes, caves and playones incorporated throughout — a testament to the property’s mission of being respective and reflective of the environment. This property is the first and only hotel in the Americas to have been awarded the EarthCheck Certification for Planning and Design, a recognition granted after nine years of conducting geological, environmental and water studies to assure the hotel’s design helped preserved the existing ecosystem.

Eighty per cent of the property was sourced locally, including building materials, and nearly 60 percent of all Hotel Xcaret’s purchases are made in the Yucatan Peninsula: hand-painted bathroom tiles, pillow coverings sewn by women from Chiapas, even the artisanal candies on pillows at turndown.
