Social responsability. We collaborate with conservation associations such as GRUPO GEMA del Mayab AC since 1983. We contribute with several of its programs such as the protection of sea turtles and dolphins, inviting our guests not to swim with dolphins, as this encourages abuse of the animal. Our facilities facilitate free meetings for the Animal Welfare Network. We offer talks about human development and ecology every month, focused on empowering women. We comply with the laws and regulations established in the three levels of government. We have scheduled weekly visits to schools of all levels, so that new generations learn about the sustainability of a business that can take care of the environment and be lucrative. The healthy offer: the complimentary breakfast includes a menu with different options, served with natural orange juice, tropical fruit, Mexican coffee. We do not sell cigarettes, alcohol or soft drinks. Our efforts in the commitment to Mother Earth and society offer an excellent option to stay and at the same time, contribute to the conservation of the environment, which ensure a responsible and memorable stay. Araceli DominguezGema del Mayab A.C.
