Hacienda Tres Rios, Riviera Maya, Mexico

More than 120 plant species and 90 animal species inhabit the area along with 10 cenotes (fresh water springs). Some environmental practices incorporated at Tres Rios include in-room motion sensors that shut down unnecessary energy use when rooms are unoccupied, cold well water is used to cool air conditioning systems and heat generated from air conditioning is captured and used to heat water. A titanium-clad water desalination plant is also used to treat and filter water, avoiding use of the freshwater aquifer.

The 273 luxuriously appointed suites feature spectacular views of the dramatic turquoise Caribbean Sea, freshwater rivers or the lush mangrove forest. In addition to Egyptian cotton linens, a pillows menu, Mexican mahogany furniture and marble floors, each room is equipped with modern amenities such as a 32” flat screen TVs, iPod docking station, in-room internet access and laptop size safe (among many others).

    Hi Susie, love what you are doing. I too love this country! Would you be willing to add our blog ( or website to your “likes”? We specialize in Puerto Vallarta and I don’t see any links to PV yet…would like to be the first. Also, what are your requirements and process for posting a Vallarta article with photos to your site?
