Yucatan Holidays joins the Earth Hour

Yucatan Holidays,  looking to support local and international green initiatives,  joined on Saturday, March 27th the Earth Hour pledge. We attended to the one of the better known all inclusive resorts on the Rivera Maya, the Hacienda Tres Rios, to take part in Earth Hour. With the collaboration of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the people of Sydney Australia, Earth Hour began in 2007. Since its conception, the last Saturday of every March has united cities and citizens around the globe in earth awareness. At exactly 8:30 pm, business, households and landmarks sink into darkness, shutting off all non-essential lights and appliances. Regardless of race, religion or political views, Earth Hour has become a way to unite the planet in this very important cause.

During this year’s annual Earth Hour, Yucatan Holidays and Hacienda Tres Rios invited all guests outside for a torch and fire lit Mayan show. The walkways were beautifully illuminated with candles as all lights of the resort were turned off and a host explained the ever increasing importance of this hour’s observation. Guests and other spectators sat in a semi-circle to watch a well performed Mayan drum and dance show depicting life of the ancient natives. The guests not only appeared to enjoy the show but expressed a deep appreciation of Hacienda Tres Rios’ participation in such an important cause. One may think that turning off the lights for an entire hour at such a grand resort would be an impossible task but, with poise, Hacienda Tres Rios and Yucatan Holidays accomplished their earth conscious mission.
