Daniel Chavez Moran: On Environmental Stewardship
Several Grupo Mayan Resort brands are part of En Advance, which unites efforts for the preservation of the Mexican ecology and the protection of the marine turtle, in order to rescue this species from the threat of extinction. The Acapulco and Riviera Maya locations actively work to ensure that turtles are born and the species continues to survive.
At the Mayan Palace Resort, sea turtles lay their eggs on the beaches, sometimes more than 80 a night. From October until December, freeing baby turtles becomes an activity for guests. This exciting and educational activity sustains the natural habitat and teaches guests about Grupo Mayan’s conservation efforts.
