Our Mission at Casacol is twofold

2. Provide an exceptional, world-class guest experience to those to stay with us whether for a night, a month or indefinitely. Happy guests will return again and again and refer friends, family and colleagues and thus keep our occupancy high and our investors happy.

The Casacol Vision and Philosophy

Investing in Colombia should be safe, transparent and profitable. Navigating the investment process by yourself in a foreign country with a language and culture you may not understand can lead to costly mistakes. We aim for Casacol to be first choice for investors looking for a high quality, income-producing asset with high liquidity and long-term price appreciation potential.
Also hospitality in Medellin should be world-class. As a developing country, Colombia can sometimes deliver an experience that falls short of the expectations of the international traveler. At Casacol we believe that a true global 5-star guest experience on a global standard for both our short and long term guests will soon become the norm in Medellin as our new projects continually come to fruition.
