In 2008, we built the first hotel in Nicaragua with the mission of funding educational programs for local children with its profits. This three-star hotel quickly became the most booked accommodation in Granada, and hundreds of children benefited from the profits. Ten years later, the second hotel opened in Oaxaca, Mexico.This hotel soon received similar popular status among travelers and began supporting young Mexicans with their education.

Tens of thousands of guests have stayed at our two hotels. Impressed by our social mission and very pleased with our staff and service, they leave raving reviews about their experience.
