We Care


Social and Enviromental Responsibility Program

Since our foundation 15 years ago, Colibri Boutique Hotels has been at the forefront of social and environmental responsibility. For us it's not just about minimizing the negative impacts, it's also about pioneering positive ones. We have a dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility Manager who works with local communities and government advisory boards to identify new projects we can create to give back to the community and help us adhere to our corporate mission, that guides us in all that we do:

We have two major programs that we run We Care, which focuses on our holistic commitment towards ethical excellence in all matters of the environment, our team members and their families. And the Giving Back program which focuses on how we can give back to the wider community with educational programs, donations and special events. 



All species of sea turtles are protected by federal laws and international agreements, but all are unfortunately now classified as Vulnerable or Endangered. At Colibri Boutique Hotels we work closely with local organisation Kanan Aak and their Program for the Protection & Conservation of Turtles of Tulum. Their aim is to give the Turtles who hatch in Tulum the best chance of survival. In coordination with hotel El Pez, they patrol the beaches each night of the nesting season, marking nests and moving eggs to a secure location if the nest is too exposed. Then when the eggs hatch, they help the little guys get safely to the water. For many years now Colibri Boutique hotels has provided the funding for the patrol staff and the quad bike transportation they need to do their valuable work.


We at Colibri Boutique Hotels believe that education is the foundation for healthy, happy communities and that is why we decided to run a program aimed at increasing interest in science in the local primary schools of Tulum. Since May 2019 in association with ADO we have been bringing students every month from Tulum’s Public Primary Schools to the SAYAB Planetarium in Playa del Carmen to learn about the geological history of the Yucatan Peninsula. This is just one of the ways we are giving back to the local community.


We take great pride in keeping Tulum beautiful and our teams regularly come together to clean the public beaches. This is last year´s international beach cleaning day in collaboration with Ocean Conservancy, ZOFEMAT and the Dirección de Ecología Municipal.

We have extensive recycling for all hotel waste and provide recycling bins for our guests and on public beaches by our properties.
