For the 4th Year Hotels in Cancun Celebrate Earth Hour

CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort and JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa Participated in the World's Largest Initiative on Climate Change

CANCUN, MEXICO--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2013) - On March 23, 2013, JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa and CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort joined others in 6,950 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories around the globe for Earth Hour.

For the fourth year in a row, these two resorts in Cancun participated in the world's largest initiative on climate change. Created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2006, the annual international event is held the third Saturday in March and aims to draw attention to the declining state of the environment by asking participants to turn off non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour.

On the evening of the 23rd, the Cancun luxury resorts dimmed the lighting in their public areas and asked guests to participate by turning off the lights in their rooms from 8:30 to 9:30pm. Taking part in Earth Hour is just one way the hotels show their support for implementing environmentally friendly solutions into their everyday businesses.

While the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa and CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort are both located in Cancun's exclusive hotel zone, each offers guests a unique experience. At the CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort, guests can relax with an all-inclusive hotel package experience, making it a favorite with families and group getaways.
