Tangolunda Dream Beach, Mexico, obtained a 100% compliance rating in the 33 imperative and guideline Blue Flag criterion for the season 2018-2019.
Managed by Dreams Huatulco Resort & Spa, the beach was one of the 54 beaches recognized by Blue Flag in Mexico for the 2018-2019 season. This beach achieved this perfect rating regarding Blue Flag imperative and guideline criterion thanks to the Resort’s commitment for the conservation of environment.
The Resort launched a “sustainable schools” programme in local schools to educate children to sustainable development revolving around water, energy, waste, biodiversity, culture and health education. For instance, the activity implemented during the past school year was linked to local sustainable agents. While one group of kids was monitoring the energy consumption of its house and school in order to implement savings solutions, another one was carrying out activities about environmental protection. It helped raising children’s awareness about wind power while involving the hotel staff, teachers, parents and kids.
Moreover, Dreams Huatulco Resort & Spa did a theoretical estimation of carbon dioxide equivalent per host. Based on the number of guests in each country, they calculated the CO2 produced by a plane regarding guests’ living country and Huatulco.
Tangolunda Dream Beach is surrounded by lush jungle, soaring mountains and dazzling coral reefs that need to be protected. It is also the home of sea turtles which hatch seasonally from July through December. Protecting this beach also go through the protection of this sea turtle population and the guarantee that the babies take their first steps towards their home in the ocean.
The Resort’s work illustrates how sustainability encompasses the economic, the social and the environmental. Tangolunda Dream Beach is an example of a great commitment to preserve our oceans.
