Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, La Antigua Guatemala has developed a reputation among travelers as one of the world’s most fascinating cultural cities and Casa Encantada is deeply committed to the program of sustainable tourism – that’s why it is part of our daily operations.
By utilizing the best practices, our property continues to minimize the amount of energy it consumes on a daily basis. We train and encourage our employees to reduce their impact on the environment. From waste management to limiting greenhouse-gas emissions, Casa Encantada continues to seek out new ways to operate as eco-friendly as possible.
Staff and management recognize the importance of giving back to the local economy. We recruit and train residents from nearby communities, ensuring that the entire region also benefits from the success of Casa Encantada. We consistently participate with our neighbors to make our destination a better one for visitors and the community every day. Understanding and respect for indigenous cultures, customs and traditions is also promoted at every opportunity.
Thanks to the efforts we have made, we have been certified by Rainforest Alliance for hotels.
Our sustainability policy covers the entire environment of our operations motivating our staff and our suppliers to feel committed with the development of themselves and their communities and the respect that we live with them and with our guests. We also try to involve our guests because we are all important part of the change.
