Paradisus Los Cabos has become the only destination’s hotel to receive a Blue Flag certification for the July 2022- June 2023 season.
Blue Flag is an international non-profit program with expertise in environmental management and sustainable actions in the field of tourism.
This is the first time the property has received this distinction, making it the only hotel in Los Cabos to obtain this award on its own merit.
Blue Flag is an internationally-recognized badge valued by millions of people, institutions and organizations, operating under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Candidates for the Blue Flag badge must meet and maintain a series of strict environmental criteria during the current season; security and services; environmental education and water quality.
Blue Flag awards a recognition of the hotel's commitment to its guests, to the local context and to the preservation and care of the beaches and the ecosystem of the area.
To receive this certification, each hotel must comply with strict guidelines and, in the case of Paradisus Los Cabos, thanks to its sustainability pillar that promotes and ensures the care of the area and the respectful connection to what is local, they managed to obtain this award.
On multiple occasions, Paradisus by Meliá has made known its commitment to social and environmental responsibility based on four essential work points to promote eco-friendly tourism: mitigate the carbon footprint, reduce water consumption, minimize environmental impact and reduce waste.
"It is a great honour for us to have received this award, undoubtedly the result of the effort to ensure that our hotels meet all standards of well-being towards our guests, towards the environment and towards our entire community,” said Edward Di Luca, regional director of the Mexican Pacific.
