Rosewood Mayakoba Launches Eco-Minded Experiences to Protect Endangered Sea Turtles

Riviera Maya, Mexico (July 24, 2018) – Rosewood Mayakoba, the award-winning resort nestled in the lush enclave of the Riviera Maya, offers indulgence with awareness and is built to abide by the highest of eco-standards. This summer, the property is expanding its immersive, eco-minded experiences to support the protection of endangered sea turtles that nest on Mexico’s beaches each year. 

“We are committed to the conservation of our surrounding environment and the health of our neighboring communities,” said Daniel Scott, Managing Director of Rosewood Mayakoba. “From cultivating native plants in our gardens to our recent USD13 million beach restoration project, the protection of sea turtles in the region is a crucial component of our mission to protect and foster biodiversity on a global scale.”

Conservation-driven experiences on the property for both adults and families include: 
  • Tortuga Cocktail: Available throughout the summer months, guests at Rosewood Mayakoba can toast to sea turtle conservation with the Akumal Mezcalita Cocktail offered across the property’s captivating dining venues including Casa del Lago, Punta Bonita, Agave Azul and on the beach. Mixed with gin, Martini Bianco, lemongrass, raspberry syrup and lemon, all proceeds benefit the work of Centro Ecológico Akumal, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to sustainability-related issues including the conservation of nesting sea turtles and hatchlings in Quintana Roo. 

  • Daily Wildlife Eco-Tours: Guests can enjoy learning about Mexico’s abundant wildlife through the resort’s family-friendly wildlife tours. The property offers daily excursions for children departing from Rose Buds® at 10:00 a.m. followed by an 11:00 a.m. tour for adults and families beginning at the main lobby dock. Guests will learn more about the sea turtles that call Mexico home, focusing on rehabilitation and protection efforts. 

  • Educational Turtle Release with Rose Buds®: Guided by the property’s resident sustainability expert, children can observe the release of nesting sea turtles into the Caribbean Sea from May to October in addition to an educational lesson on the importance of preservation. Additional eco-themed programming for kids includes year-round beach games highlighting native species of sea turtles and how the resort ensures their protection.
