Celebrate World Bee Day with a French Experience amidst nature

In the heart of bustling Mexico City, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma has created an oasis of nature and French culture to celebrate one of the sweetest days of the year: World Bee Day, 20 May. This luxurious hotel has created an experience that not only allows its guests to celebrate this special date, but also to learn about the importance of these pollinators and the vital role they play in our ecosystem.


With the aim of contributing to the care of the environment and promoting the conservation of bees, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma has partnered with Actagono, a Mexican company specializing in environmental consultancy and the implementation of social-ecological projects. Through this company, the hotel takes care of several hives, working for well-being and a sustainable future.

Guests can also opt for an electric car intended for a sustainable ride when visiting the Icteria Bees. This place is located in the Alvaro Obregón Mayor’s Office, just 30 minutes from the Sofitel. Alfonso Cestello, president of Beekeeping MX, tells us about the efforts needed to conserve and protect the bees and their habitat at the beekeeping center. While education plays an important role, there has been a drastic reduction in bee populations across the world in recent years due to various factors such as pesticide use and climate change.

You will learn about their hierarchies, functions and you will have the opportunity to enter the apiary to see the Sofitel hives. Through the hexagonal cells of the hive, you will be able to observe how nectar is transformed into a unique and delicious honey, which you will also have the opportunity to collect.
