Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa recently hosted the grand opening of its ecosirenis nursery. The nursery, named Vivero, exhibits five ecosystems featuring the 22 different species of vegetation the resort is home to. Guided tours of the conservation area are now offered to guests to educate them and plant a respect for nature in their hearts. Visual displays of Mayan traditions are placed along the winding paths of lush greenery to honor the resort’s ties to one of the most environmentally conscious civilizations!
During the exciting opening, there were rituals performed by a Mayan shaman and dancers. Participants also planted the first tree in the SPT Members Children Garden. Members’ children are encouraged to plant seeds next to rocks showing their names so that each time families visit their home away from home at Sirenis, they can check on its growth!
The opening of Vivero was only a kick-off to several upcoming Ecosirenis projects. Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya has since introduced eco-tours that allow guests yet another opportunity to explore, up-close and personal, the awe-inspiring environment and wildlife that inhabit the region. In addition to the variety of vegetation that thrive on property, the resort’s beaches are also populated by various animals including the Black Iguana, the Cinnamon Hummingbird, and the Social Flycatcher. Guests can participate in the eco-tours either on foot or by bike.
We will keep you posted on more Eco Sirenis projects to come as Sirenis Hotels & Resorts continues to further their environmentally friendly efforts and stay true to the in-touch-with-nature principles of their ancient Mayan ancestors.
