The First All-Inclusive Resort with a Blue Flag in Isla Mujeres
Like you read it! ATELIER Playa Mujeres is the first all-inclusive resort with a Blue Flag Certified beach on Isla Mujeres, including its mainland: Costa Mujeres and Playa Mujeres. This certification is aligned with our Eco-Social Awareness® philosophy, which is committed to environmental, economic, and social sustainability.
Being awarded this distinction allows us to demonstrate that we comply with all the requirements for our beautiful beach to be classified as a clean and safe one for everybody.
This couldn’t be possible without the great efforts of all our amazing resort team that day by day make sure our facilities are maintained in the best conditions for our guests’ comfort!
Red? Green? Blue Flag!
Maybe when you were on vacation strolling on the beach, you have come across this eye-catching flag and wondered what it means. Well, wonder no more!
Blue Flag is a program operated under the Foundation for Environmental Education which recognizes beaches, marinas, and boats all over the world, that meet environmental criteria for safety and services, environmental education, management, and water quality.
Its objective is to make people understand the huge impact their actions cause and to take care of their surroundings and their environment.
Blue Flag’s Qualification System
Blue Flag has created a strict verification guideline to qualify. The participants need to comply with 90% of the eligibility criteria, which include the following points:
As we said before, Blue Flag aims to protect the environment and raise awareness about it. Those who wish to receive this certification need to provide important information to the community by placing it in a visible place and making it as clear as possible for everyone, and also by creating activities that promote sustainability.
For a beach like ours to be certified water quality analysis is required. This allows all those who want to be swimming on the beach or just relaxing on the shore to be absolutely sure that they are not in a place where the water is contaminated with pollutants or bacteria.
After applying most of the standards needed to be certified, it is very important to keep taking care of it. That is why another important point is to verify that there is continuity in the care of coastal areas and to guarantee a healthy environment for all. At ATELIER Playa Mujeres we had established a beach management committee that will make sure to keep the beach clean, have disposable bins, ensure no one is taking natural vegetation, and many other guidelines.
Safety and Services
It goes without saying that every location where this iconic flag exists, must be safe and with services for all. For example, having lifeguards, first aid equipment, access for people with disabilities, among many others.
Whew! We know there are too many requirements, but everything is for the benefit of our planet!
