Covered Stone Walkway at Porta Hotels

Porta Hotel Antigua is committed to protecting the environment while maintaining and promoting sustainable tourism in La Antigua, Guatemala and surrounding communities.

By utilizing the latest technology and operations best practices, our property minimizes the amount of energy it consumes on a daily basis. We train and encourage our employees to reduce their impact on the environment. From waste management to limiting greenhouse-gas emissions, Porta Antigua continues to seek out new ways to operate as eco-friendly as possible.

Staff and management recognize the importance of giving back to the local economy. We recruit and train residents from nearby communities, ensuring that the entire region also benefits from the success of Porta Antigua. We consistently participate with our neighbors to make our destination a better one for visitors and the community alike. Understanding and respect for indigenous cultures, customs and traditions is also promoted at every opportunity.

And along with our sustainable practices, we have launched in all the Porta hotels, the program "APorta… le importas tú”. Developed to enrich each and every one of the parties to provide and care, for the lives of our partners: their workplace, family, community, personal development, environment and their views. The response has been very positive and encourages us to keep going, so we continue with the activities to suppor the community and this year we have been in these initiatives:

Thanks to all these efforts, we have been certified by Rainforest Alliance for hotels.
