Our name ‘Hotel con Corazón’ relates to the fact that our hearts believe everyone should get a fair chance in life. And by everyone, we mean helping as many local communities as we can in the most sustainable way. So to make an even bigger impact, we need to build more hotels that fund our development programs.
Within the next five years we’re aiming to build three more hotels: two in Costa Rica and an additional one in Mexico.

We’re excited to scale to new Corazón locations, starting in 2020. Our new destinations have similar characteristics to our current locations in Latin-America: poverty, education challenges and mass tourism.
Both Costa Rica and Mexico have beautiful areas that are affected by these challenges. And because their parks, beaches, volcanos and colonial towns attract a great number of travelers, we have spotted the opportunity to help local communities there.
Curious to our detailed-plans for these next hotels?
Costa Rica’s rural area of Rincón counts with a high level of secondary school drop-outs. At the same time, its natural park and volcano are very popular by travellers. That’s why our new Corazón hotel will be located in Rincón de la Vieja, just across the border with Nicaragua.
To open this new hotel, we’ve joined forces with touroperator Riksja Travel. Besides being co-investor, Riksja's large and loyal customer base will already occupy the hotel to break-even level!Once again, to help as many children as possible, we’re aiming to build another top-performing accommodation. So if you have any ideas on how to get involved, get in touch below!
Chiapas, Mexico is a state with similar poverty and education challenges to Oaxaca. And because of its colonial charm, its lovely town San Cristobal also attracts a significant amount of Mexican, North-American and European tourists.
San Cristobál is therefore chosen to be our next Corazón destination. We’re planning to open a new Hotel con Corazón in 2021.
We are currently seeking the last investors to officially start building and open this new location. Are you the impact investor we are looking for? Discover what it means to become a social impact investor:
