Sustainable Initiatives

Plaza Colon Forest

We are focused on taking care of nature and air. In 2016, Our Staff planted over 500 hardwood trees of eighth different species, in order to create a forest that reduces the carbon footprint that can be produced by the daily operations of our hotel.  During the first years, every Saturday part of our staff went to the farm where the trees were planted to water them, remove the weeds, prune the grass and taking care of them to let them grow and give clean air to the nearby community. Now we can proudly enjoy of this green space that have become the home of many kinds of birds

Art Collection

All of the artworks that you can admire in the hotel are a collection of different paintings of recognized Nicaraguan artists such as Denis Nuñez, Alejandro Arostegui, Norlan Santana and Oswaldo Cáceres.

Plaza Colon Back Pack

We offer a sustainable option for our guests that would like to help Granada’s children, by buying “Plaza Colón Backpack”. The backpacks are delivered once a month to the School and are given to the children who cannot afford them and that are also enthusiastic about the environment.
