You’re invited…whether we have the pleasure of hosting you at the resort this week or the opportunity to collaborate through inspiration wherever you are on our shared planet, welcome to our weeklong celebration of Earth Day 2023!
Sustainability is deeply woven within our Bucuti & Tara culture, and we are proud to host you at the Caribbean's first certified carbon-neutral hotel. Did you know that a stay at Bucuti & Tara is healthier for the planet than even staying home? It’s true with your carbon-neutral vacation at Bucuti & Tara, there is no carbon footprint. Shouldn’t every vacation be this guilt-free and planet-positive?
Earth Day is April 22nd, and in celebration, we have the following events you’re invited to participate in this week:

Join Aruba's Prime Minster Evelyn Wever-Croes along with some of your favorite Bucuti Associates, along with our sustainability partners of the Aruba Airport Authority and local school children (our future!) to comb the beach, keeping it pristine, including for Leatherback sea turtles who began nesting on our beach this season.
