Mexico Ministry of Tourism Recognizes El Cid Marina Beach Hotel Sustainability Efforts
Friday, June 8, 2018
During Tianguis Turístico, Mexico’s most important tourism event last month, El Cid Marina Beach Hotel of the El Cid Resorts and El Cid Vacations Club brand received the highest certification of sustainability from the Mexico Ministry of Tourism. This award is presented by PROFEPA, Mexico’s Federal Environmental Agency.
El Cid Marina Beach specifically received PROFEPA’s esteemed “S” designation. The “S” is the ideal rating for hotels as it means it meets the same standards issued by two global, authoritative environmental organizations who advocate for the best sustainability practices, Rainforest Alliance and EarthCheck. Additionally, Marina Beach Hotel was one of 191 Mexico hotels to receive an “S” designation from the World Tourism Organization, which has some of the highest international sustainability standards.
Resorts within the El Cid and El Cid Vacations Club brand have created incredible sustainability programs on their properties across Mexico. From linen and towel reuse to on-site recycling to composting, their employees are educated and trained for sustainable practices. They also participate in local sustainability with beach cleaning events, sea turtle release programs, and environmental awareness efforts. They put forth their best effort to create a better environment for all without skimping on the luxurious accommodations and amenities found on each of their resorts.
El Cid Resorts President and CEO Carlos Berdeguè stated:
“El Cid Resorts has always had a strong commitment to the environment with green practices taking place throughout all our properties, and we are honored that our hotel has achieved the highest distinction our government can give in Tianguis Turístico 2018.”
