Sustainable Hotels in Latin America and the United States
A Commitment to our Communities
We can not ignore the impact of urbanization and development on our environment. As global citizens, it is our duty to both contribute to organic urbanization and to preserve the ecosystem.
We ensure that we are in compliance with all national and international legislation and standards in labor matters, municipal, tax, health, safety (risk prevention) in regards to the operation of our hotels. We take pride in being transparent and guarantee that everything is done the right way.
