Caring for Our World
Our passion for the world around us is as much a part of who we are as the lifelong family memories we help guests create. See how Now Sapphire gives back to its community and beyond.
Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun has achieved significant and measurable sustainability milestones and has received the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ mark. The requirements for certification are aligned with the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria. This certification assures the commitment of Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun to reduce the impact of its activities on the planet and local communities.
As a standard, our resort restaurants never serve any meals that include any shark species. We continue to support the conservation of sharks with programs like the Saving Our Sharks association through monthly donations to continue research on the state of the wild shark populations.
Recycling & Resource Conservation
By supporting the ecological group Sierra Gorda AC, we reduce our carbon footprint with the reforestation of the Sierra Gorda forest in the state of Queretaro, which leads to increased oxygen produced by the forest. The community directly manages this, generating sources of employment and, at the same time, offsetting our carbon footprint.
Guests of Now Sapphire have the unique opportunity to help the children of Quintana Roo. For $30 USD per person, guests can purchase a special dinner at Cibu or Paramour restaurants. The money raised helps maintain toy libraries, prevent childhood obesity, and prevent the exploitation of children in Quintana Roo.
