The impact of COVID 19 has been more severe than the 9/11 attacks and the 2008 financial crisis combined. This pandemic has forced hotel companies, operators, suppliers and owners to return to the drawing board and promote health and sustainability as axes of the Strategic Plan.​

Being the tourism sector one of the key pillars of the world economy, it has been one of the most affected by the pandemic. At DE CASTRO GROUP we trust that we’ll get out of this crisis, now aggravated by the war in Ukraine, through a deep transformation based on understanding the behavior of a more sensibilized tourist along with an approach to 360º sustainability.​

At DE CASTRO GROUP we work to transform hospitality into more respectful industry by boosting sustainability values, focused on the environment and local communities.
