Sustainability

A Beautiful Eco-Friendly Hotel

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. 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 also 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 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 benefits from the success of Casa Encantada as well. In addition, 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 are also promoted at every opportunity.

Thanks to the efforts we’ve made, our property have been certified by Rainforest Alliance for hotels.
