In 2006, two Dutch guys decided to start a social enterprise in Granada, Nicaragua, with the mission of supporting educational development for children. Hotel con Corazón Granada is the result; a successful hotel that has had raving reviews ever since. Hotel con Corazón Granada invests its profits in education, through private education programs set up by the hotel.
In 2012, the Dutch Foundation Hotel con Corazón came up with the plan to open more Hotels with a Heart around the world. Hotel con Corazón Oaxaca is the second, soon to be followed by others.
