Porta del Lago is committed to protecting the environment while promoting sustainable tourism along the shores of Lake Atitlán.
How do we do it? By utilizing the latest technology, our hotel has minimized the amount of energy and water it consumes on a daily basis. We train and encourage our staff to reduce their impact on the environment. From waste management to limiting greenhouse-gas emissions, Porta del Lago 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 del Lago. We consistently participate with our neighbors to make our destination a better one everyday. Understanding and respect for indigenous cultures and customs are also promoted at every opportunity.

For further information and details on our recognized and priced program, please refer to our policies on Sustainability, Sustainable Tourism, and Responsible Tourism.
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. We will be updating more information.
Thanks to all these efforts, we have been certified by Rainforest Alliance for hotels.
