Mexico has a rich history and a beautiful landscape, from rolling hills, vast plains, and dense jungles across the Yucatan. With boutique hotels sprouting up throughout Mexico, it should come as no surprise that the desire for ecotourism is booming. More and more tourists are flocking to the remote, distant Yucatan areas to experience Mexico’s rich history, culture, and entertainment up close.
What is Ecotourism?
Ecotourism is a form of tourism dedicated to exploring, preserving, and ethically journeying to exotic, natural environments. Many individuals, especially those who are climate-conscious, want to travel to these wild or exotic locations and help the local economies grow through tourism and exploration. Many would like to limit the gas or pollution they create in the process if they can.
Ecotourism helps local villages, towns, and otherwise distant places capitalize and benefit from the same tourism prevalent in larger urban centers. Areas such as Tulum and its boutique hotels have seen a marked increase in profits due to ecotourism and individuals wanting to experience the well-preserved Mayan port city ruins.
Tulum boutique hotels are the perfect places for tourists to rest while they explore the extraordinary beauty and exotic nature of the Yucatan.
Is Ecotourism Only for Rural Places?
No, not at all! Urban centers with boutique hotels, such as Mexico City, benefit from ecotourism. After all, many people have to enter the Yucatan from somewhere, and after a long flight, many tourists want a nice place, and boutique hotels in Mexico City are very tempting. No matter where a tourist goes, boutique hotels in Mexico are enticing since they can feel exotic to someone not native to the Yucatan or Mexico proper. Boutique hotels in Mexico also usually have a story to tell. This is especially true of the ones found in rural towns, fringe cities, and villages.
Mexico and Ecotourism
Mexico has a rich history, exotic locales, unique culture, and entertainment.
Why is Mexico such a hotbed for ecotourism?
Why not Brazil, Ecuador, or Venezuela?
Mexico—and the Yucatan—have a rich history that entices anthropologists, tourists, and scholars alike. Ancient civilizations and testaments to their existence dot the countryside and beaches, making these fringe places the perfect areas to begin an ecotourism journey. Small towns such as Tulum, Izamal, Valle de Bravo, and Mazunte exoticize Mexico, and the history within entices anthropological ecotourism through human connections. Outside of that, many towns or small cities have museums and places of extreme historical significance, such as monasteries, ruins, and landscapes. Boutique hotels closer to these historical places see a marked increase in renters, especially in places like Tulum where boutique hotels are growing yearly due to ecotourism.
Mexico has a rich culture and a history of cultural blending. Mexico has a
unique culture from the first colonies and cities to the old aristocracy and the
mixing of Spanish, Mayan, and Aztec. While many people outside of the Yucatan lump Mexican culture with other South American cultures, ecotourism helps bring light to these places and showcase the beauty of Mexican food, culture, and society. Ecotourism wants to experience these cultures, with dozens of tourists visiting boutique hotels in Mexico to re-live an authentic cultural experience by experiencing a taste of the living conditions, food, or interactions with the people.
When people think of Mexico, they more often think of the Mexico-US border, as well as the ample, expansive space between the two countries. But Mexico is so much more than deserts, cacti, and everything else they portray in the media. There are vibrant jungles, limestone coastlines, rugged farmlands, and quaint towns with a loving, welcoming, and proud population.
Ecotourism lives and dies in exotic locales. With ancient Mayan ruins and
monasteries dotting the Yucatan, Mexico is unlike any other place in the world. Cascading waterfalls throughout the jungles and mountains make for excellent sightseeing, and jagged peaks make excellent climbing for the daring ecotourist.
ECOTOURISM AND BOUTIQUE HOTELS
Boutique hotels in Mexico are fantastic for ecotourism, as they can provide a
feeling of exoticism and local economic support no matter where they are.
Whether you are an owner or an investor, you should find that boutique hotels in
Mexico offer meaningful job opportunities to local economies and garner interest in the ecotourism community as being places they can go to support and experience local economies and cultures.
Mexico has a rich history, culture, and exotic locale that lends itself to beautiful, enchanting entertainment you cannot find anywhere else. From Estadio Azteca to bullfights and festivals, Mexico has entertainment that is unmatched by any other country in the world. Ecotourists want to experience nature and bring income and prosperity to smaller towns, making entertainment paramount in keeping their attention. Stageplays, bullfights, and even simple festivals can do wonders to represent the best parts of Mexican culture and vibrancy.
And of course, Estadio Azteca: football! Known to Americans as soccer, it is perhaps the single most popular sport in Mexican culture, with thousands of boutique hotels in Mexico renting rooms across the Yucatan to fans and players alike. Ecotourism can supply small towns and cities with viable income from sports events, making them highly desirable to boutique hotel investors and owners.
LOCAL ECONOMIC SUPPORT
The point of ecotourism is to experience and enrich a country’s farthest-reaching towns and villages while doing so ethically and responsibly. Boutique hotels in Mexico do this amazingly, as they can be tailored and supplied with local workers, cultures, and flair that help entice the enrichment of that particular place or culture.
Where’s your favorite place to vacation? Boutique hotels tucked inside busy
Mexico City can be just as attractive as enjoyable as those out in Tulum. A boutique hotel can be outfitted to represent the ruins around the municipality and help tourists feel as if they have entered a new, vibrant place while still maintaining the expected amenities of a more developed, urban center.
