21 Mar NATIONAL GÜEGÜENSE AWARD TO TOURIST EXCELLENCE
We are proud to announce that this is the second year in a row that Yemaya has been granted the National Güegüense Award as one of the leaders in development of sustainable tourism in Nicaragua. The category for which Yemaya was awarded is Sustainability and Social Responsibility. There are many factors that contributed to this achievement such as direct employment to 10% of the local population, inclusion of local culture in various ways, giving back to the community, good management of organic and inorganic waste, ecological water treatment (piranha system) and many others.
CANATUR, National Chamber of Tourism of Nicaragua, instituted in 2005 the “Güegüense National Award for Tourism Excellence” as an instrument that will increase the quality of service among its partners and collaborators. This award is given to companies or institutions that launch a new business culture that voluntarily integrates social and environmental issues into their management, as well as evidence of this in their relations with the different parties involved such as employees, customers or suppliers.
