Hotel management company Cayuga runs nine sustainable luxury hotels and lodges in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama, only working with projects that share its vision of responsible tourism and are 100% committed to sustainability. This commitment can be seen through the practices it implements across them all. Single use plastic are banned from all their properties. All the staff are locals, and all are employed all year round including during low season. A company doctor programme has been set up for staff and children, incentivising private doctors to relocate to the beautiful rural areas where their lodges operate - and thus also improving the quality of healthcare in the region in general. As a sign of how confident Cayuga’s owners are in their model, and how eager they are to share their vision of sustainability, they have been running behind the scenes tours showcasing their eco initiatives to their guests since 2004.
