Our name ‘Hotel con Corazón’ means that our hearts believe everyone should get a fair chance in life. And by everyone, we mean helping as many local communities in Central America as we can in the most sustainable way. So to make an even bigger impact, we will develop new social impact programs, funded by 3 new hotels. Getting curious? Discover how we’re reducing poverty by expanding our presence in Latin-America!
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 a solid growth in 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 effectively help local communities.
Costa Rica’s rural area of Rincón de la Vieja 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 travelers can enjoy today while they care for tomorrow!
Chiapas, Mexico is a state with similar poverty and education challenges to Oaxaca. And because of its colonial charm, its lovely town San Cristóbal also attracts a significant amount of Mexican, North-American and European tourists.
San Cristobál is therefore chosen to be our second Corazón destination in Mexico. We’re planning to open this new Hotel con Corazón in 2021.
We are currently seeking the last investors to officially open this new location. Are you the impact investor we are looking for?
