If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly destination for your eco-conscious luxury clients you can now point them in the direction of the Riviera Nayarit with added confidence, thanks to TripAdvisor’s newest #green accolade program, aptly named GreenLeaders.

Riviera Nayarit’s GreenLeaders Program Hotels

We are proud to announce the five properties that have recently received this recognition:

· Hard Rock Hotel – Platinum Level
· Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit – Gold Level
· Royal Decameron Complex – Gold Level
· Hotelito Los Sueños – Silver Level
· Dreams Villamagna – Bronze Level

These resorts embody the eco-friendly hospitality practices that are at the core of the Riviera Nayarit’s tourism offering and all of these hotels offer at least 10% commission to agents.

What is the GreenLeaders Program?

The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders Program showcases properties committed to green practices like recycling; local and organic food; proper land, air and water management and other environmentally friendly actions. All potential GreenLeader properties must apply for the program. If accepted, they achieve one of four statuses: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The higher the status, the greater the impact of a property’s green practices.

Each GreenLeader will have a badge on their TripAdvisor page that takes guests to the list of things they are doing to protect the environment. Guests are welcome to leave their thoughts on the hotel’s environmentally friendly practices on their TripAdvisor reviews.
