The perfect combination of relaxation and adventure awaits at Panama Jack Resorts, where you are free to soak up good vibes and dive into unexpected delights.
Green Globe congratulates Panama Jack Resorts Cancun and Panama Jack Resorts Playa del Carmen on receiving their inaugural certifications earlier this year with both properties achieving very high compliance scores.
The two all-inclusive hotels belong to the Playa Hotels & Resorts Group. Influenced by Panama Jack’s relaxed and fun atmosphere embracing all things sun and surf, the properties have been reimagined to provide a casual and friendly vacation experience.
Panama Jack Resorts Cancun
Panama Jack Resorts Cancun is located in the city of Cancun that sits on the northeastern coast of Mexico’s sunny Yucatan Peninsula. Adventurers can zipline over the Yucatan jungle, plunge into the deep blue lagoons of a cenote or snorkel the world’s second longest coral reef. Relics of the ancient Mayan Empire, the ruins of Tulum and Chichen Itza and shopping also await intrepid travellers.
Panama Jack Resorts Cancun was redesigned to incorporate energy and water saving measures and recycling systems. Environmental initiatives include beach-cleaning campaigns, a towel and linen reuse program and providing plastic straws only on request.
To support regional development, the resort sponsors day trips to the town of Tulum, famous for its beaches and seaside Mayan ruins and the Melipona Maya Foundation that aims to preserve traditional but endangered Mayan beekeeping. The Foundation is also re-establishing beekeeping in local communities to provide income streams from the sale of honey and beeswax. At the resort, traditional Mayan-inspired dancers perform nightly shows and restaurants offer modern Mexican dishes while guests can watch tacos being made in the traditional way at Jack’s Shack Taco Stand.
Panama Jack Resorts Playa del Carmen
At Panama Jack Resorts Playa del Carmen, guests of all ages can recharge amid the azure seas, authentic culture and coastal charm of the Riviera Maya – home to stingrays, moray eels, sea turtles, and colourful coral.
The property adheres to a comprehensive sustainability management plan. Minimal fossil fuels are consumed, as the property is located in a commercial area thereby lowering transportation needs for guests or goods delivery. Sensors are installed in all public restrooms to control lighting and ventilation. Low flow showerheads are fitted in guestrooms with a minimum expenditure of 6.6 l / min. While recyclable waste is segregated in a specific area and collected for recycling by a designated supplier.
Green actions at the property include the use of eco-friendly products such as fruits and vegetables, paper, bags, chemicals and cleaning supplies. In addition, Green Meetings and Conferences can also be arranged at one of the modern function rooms.
To assist local economic activity, Panama Jack Resorts Playa del Carmen promotes tours where guests can visit the ecological parks of the region as well as historical and cultural sites such as the Mayan ruins or explore magnificent natural places by snorkeling or diving at the magnificent cenotes . At the resort, local suppliers are hired to sell traditional foods, cigars and local honey, and tequila tastings are held to promote the sale of tequila.
