In the name of inspiring happiness for generations to come, Grupo Vidanta believes in operating responsibly and with an unwavering commitment to protecting the environment. This commitment is reflected in the environmental responsibility procedures and conservation values that make up our comprehensive Environmental Management System. Read on to learn more about this system and how Grupo Vidanta has integrated its policies and guidelines into every aspect of our business. 


  • The system is an extensive series of goals and programs overseen by EarthCheck, the world’s leading environmental benchmarking advisory group for the travel industry.
  • We’ve been certified by EarthCheck for the last 12 years, and Vidanta Riviera Nayarit has achieved Platinum Certification, the highest level EarthCheck awards.
  • Grupo Vidanta employs a staff of more than 35 specialized environmentalists, including 19 at Vidanta Riviera Nayarit alone, to enforce the system and train others in its operation.
  • The team tracks a series of ecological indicators in order to closely monitor environmental priorities.
  • The Environmental Management System has been divided into 6 different specialized divisions: water conservation, energy conservation, waste management, emissions management, ecowaste and emissions management; ecosystem care; and guest, employee, and outside vendor education. As a result of our efforts, our team has seen outstanding positive changes in all of these areas, including a large reduction in water, electricity, and LP gas consumption.
