Hotel Zuana receives the international Blue Flag certification for the fifth time.

The Blue Flag obtained by Hotel Zuana in the city of Santa Marta, on its concessioned beach in Bello Horizonte, was raised for the fifth time on Friday, December 1, 2023.

In addition to the certification awarded by ACODAL and the Vice Ministry of Tourism, the prestigious hotel received special recognition for supporting and promoting the environmental and sustainable management of marine-coastal tourism.

Hotel Zuana is the only beachfront hotel in Colombia and South America with this important environmental eco-label, increasingly valued by national and international guests. Currently, there are 9 Blue Flags in Colombia, with 2 of them in the city of Santa Marta.

The hotel's concessioned beach has stood out for meeting key aspects for certification, including water quality, safety for swimmers, environmental education, and environmental management, among others.

From Hotel Zuana, this award is considered a gift and a prize for the destination Santa Marta and for Colombia. "It is a significant effort, representing the private sector, to demonstrate that by uniting efforts, will, and positivity, many things can be achieved."

It is worth noting that ACODAL is the representative of the Blue Flag for Colombia, an internationally recognized Blue Flag, a certification created by FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education).
