Many of Cayuga’s hotels occupy remote Rainforest locations. That’s why Cayuga makes it a priority to preserve the natural surroundings, protecting thousands of acres of endangered tropical rainforest. Senda Monteverde partnered with Monteverde Forest Clean Up, a group of young locals dedicated to keeping Monteverde as nature intended.
Cayuga Collection hires 100% of its employees from the local area. Providing professional growth, offering ongoing training, promoting internally, and fueling the team’s desire to grow! Caluga won the 2018 People Award by the World Travel & Tourism Council, Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, for their commitment to improving career opportunities in the locations they operate. To keep sustainable innovation, Cayuga created an Innovation Contest to tap into the collective knowledge of their 400+ employees. Taking sustainable luxury even further at the Cayuga Collection.

Cayuga Collection believes that the concept of “local” is essential to sustainable tourism. That’s why they hire locals, buy local, and invest in the well-being of the community and natural surroundings.

Making a conscious effort to source as many products as close to home as possible. Therefore, all Cayuga’s Collection mini bars are stocked with only local drinks and snacks. Their Spa products and bathroom amenities are 100% national. The gift shops offer a variety of products handmade by local artisans. 

To support the local economy even more, much of the furniture and art is also locally produced. Creating an authentic sense of place for the guests.

Cayuga collection thrives to offer the ultimate eco-luxury experience, teaching guests to be more conscious and responsible,  so it’s fully recommended for guests to turn off & unplug everything in their rooms while they are out for the day. Senda Monteverde teched-up and energy efficient, heating water with solar panels!

A smart solution to irrigating their lush hotel grounds.

For many months of the year, the grounds of Cayuga’s rainforest properties become bone dry and need to be watered. To ease the demand for freshwater, Cayuga’s hotels and lodges put their wastewater to good use by purifying it onsite through a special biological system, making it completely safe and suitable for irrigating their gardens. Their drip irrigation systems then make sure that not a single drop is wasted.

Cayuga Collection banished all single-use plastics from all their hotels. These products take a vast quantity of fossil fuels to produce and are non-biodegradable, and can’t be recycled either. Instead, Cayuga replaced all single-use plastic straws with locally-made bamboo, and other biodegradable products that are compostable, which helps reduce the amount of non-recyclable waste.
