Hotel Xcaret

Riviera Maya, Mexico

This resort, which opened in December, is the first in Mexico to earn an “EarthCheck” certification for its sustainability efforts, such as following a strict composting program and donating to wildlife conservation efforts. Should guests tire of its on-site amenities—spa treatments, pools, restaurants—they can take a free shuttle to XCaret’s eco theme parks, which offer activities like zip-lining and snorkeling. —Samantha Cooney
