Towards a Sustainable Service at La Sabana

Sustainability is one of our intrinsic values, here at La Sabana Hotel, Suites and Apartments. It has been more than eight years since we embarked on this journey. We have implemented green actions in every step of our processes carrying them through with commitment and constancy.

With great excitement we received our CST (sustainable tourism certificate) in 2013. We were awarded with three leaves (out of five) by the ICT (Costarrican Institute of Tourism).

Our efforts towards Sustainability were recognized and it became our starting point in a journey we are so happy to travel. It has inspired us in many ways, opening new opportunities to change the way we do things. We now focus all our efforts into building an integrated operation that will decrease our industry´s negative impact on the environment and society, while encouraging balanced and responsible local economic growth.

This effort has only been possible through our incredible staff, who is committed and involved.

Community & Staff

Since it opened its doors 25 years ago, La Sabana Hotel, Suites and Apartments has been leading the way in Responsible Management.

Our main focus is on our staff. They give life to La Sabana, sharing their best attributes to make it a truly unique workplace. We support personal growth and education, promoting scholarships and working around schedules to facilitate this process.

We are proud to host an in-house Bachelor Program, designed to help all personnel at La Sabana to finish the standard academic program in order to earn their High School Diploma.

Our Rural Community Program helps small towns overcome adversity. We have recently helped La Independencia school with supplies and uniforms for the new school year. We aim at lasting relationships that will inspire children to stay in school and pursue their goals.

We appreciate your financial support for our social programs. Please ask our Front Desk Staff, or write us at[email protected]. Together, we can make it happen!
