"Contributions to Sustainable development are highly appreciated by guests and other instances related to improve the quality of life of local communities"
(National Geographic Society)


Mayaland is highly compromised in the practice of Sustainable Tourism as pioneer in the tourism industry in Mexico. In its beginnings; it promoted the practice of the Archaeological tourism at ancient Mayan sites of the Yucatan Peninsula since 1921, mainly in Chichén Itza and Uxmal, where our Resorts are located ever since.

The company always has been using environmental resources in their properties, which constitute a key element in tourism development, maintaining essential ecological processes and helping to conserve natural and cultural heritage as well as the biodiversity at the Mayaland Resorts.

Mayaland respects and works direct with the socio-cultural presence of the Mayan communities through this Direction of Cultural and Sustainable Tourism, conserving their environment and living cultural heritage and traditional values through the practice of Tourism.

Most recently, our company has been participating in programs that verified the good environmental practices    such   as   the   seal    "Verified"    from

Rainforest Alliance to our hotels: Hotel & Bungalows Mayaland and The Lodge at Chichen Itzá, as well as participating in the World Travel Responsible Tourism Day of the World Travel Market, among many others.

We contribute to inter-cultural understanding with our communities and help them to improve their quality of life through viable and the permanent establishment of programs we coordinate with private and governmental authorities in order to support and benefit our local communities. Most of them are home base of our employees and their families.

Mayaland maintains a high level of tourist satisfaction and ensure a meaningful experience to our visitors, raising their awareness about sustainability issues and promoting responsible tourism practices in our valuable Yucatan Peninsula.
