A GREAT TRIP IS THE BEST REWARD

Costa Rica

Incentive travel is meant to motivate employees to continue their hard work for the company and reward them for their achievements. What if it could do much more? As a local DMC, we provide experiences where employees can not only do teambuilding activities and networking, work and play as a group, but also be transformed, inspired and renewed.

Costa Rica is a destination made for incentive travel, meetings and events, and you can be as active or as relaxed as you like. Lodging options range from unique eco-resorts to five-star luxury properties. Travel guides and other support personnel are multi-lingual, experienced, helpful and friendly. Exotic tropical event venues range from rainforests to beaches, and activities to partake in include horseback riding, golfing, sunset sailing, white water rafting and more. Gourmet cuisine takes advantage of local fresh ingredients to create fusion dishes and cocktails that are innovative and delicious. Whether you are traveling from the US, Canada or Europe, you are likely a direct flight or an easy connection away.

Have your guests zipline through the forest in the morning and have a cocktail party overlooking the ocean that same night, as destination experts, we arrange it all for you.

Why Costa Rica?

Coming Soon...Panama

Panama can be defined in one word: contrast. Its modern city and its skyscrapers admired from the Spanish Colonial buildings in the “Casco Viejo” (Old Quarter) is only one of the contrasting experiences to be lived in this vibrant isthmus. The mind boggling engineering feat that is the Panama Canal, and the Gamboa Rainforest less than an hour away from the capital.

Panama boasts expansive hotels with over 600 rooms in the city and on the beach. Meeting and event spaces range from large Convention Centers in the middle of the city, to venues within the large properties. Participants can stay in a property overlooking the ocean or immersed in the rainforest and be close enough to travel to the city every day.

Panamanian Folkore is rich and varied. Include a traditional dance in your itinerary, where you can admire the women’s typical dress, laboriously embroidered, and adorned with jewelry and headdresses made of gold and pearls. Enjoy a tour to the Rainforest during the day and have a gourmet dinner at the Old Quarter at night, with the glimmering lights of the city as a backdrop. Interact with the Embera Indigenous people and see them make lovely hand sewn Molas and woven baskets.

Entertainment

We know incentive travel´s goal is to motivate and reward employees, however it’s also important to inspire them by providing interactive entertainment. Experiencing new activities, cultures and emotions will engage your team and expand their minds. From live painting sessions where participants can interact with an artist to an enthralling nighttime fire dancing show. The indigenous Boruca people and their tribal dance and chants or a night of swaying to the rhythms of a local Calypso or Reggae band. What works best for your group, let us work together and create a unique event remembered by all.

Event Designing

World class events custom designed for your company is our mutual goal. Exceeding attendees’ expectations, motivating them to work hard towards their goals all year to be included in the guest list once more. How to do it? Rainforest parties or midnight gala events, cruises on the bay and dancing on the beach. Interacting with the local indigenous people or whale watching, or both! We consult with you to create themed activities designed around your company’s strategies, trends and vision. We handle all the logistics and recommend options based on group size, activity levels, company trends and more.

Tours and activities

Costa Rica and Panama are small countries with diverse altitudes and Pacific and Caribbean coasts. This allows for many different activities, from kayaking in the ocean to white water rafting in one of the many different rivers and rapid levels. Zip-lining through rainforest canopies or walking above the forest floors on suspension bridges. Informative tours on how coffee is grown or night walks to observe flora and fauna. Spending time with the locals observing how handcrafts are made or tasting local fare. The options are endless. We work with you to design a program that balances work and play and motivates and excites your guests.

Off - site Dining

From fine cuisine to typical fare, these “dine around” experiences offer guests an opportunity for casual conversation with peers or smaller meetings if group is split up in different venues. We provide restaurant options and reservations, as well as any dietary needs your group may require. Fusion cuisine from a tenderloin drizzled with coffee sauce, or fish drizzled with passion fruit. Simple snacks such as yucca empanadas filled with meat or fried plantains are must haves. Would visiting a local rural family and tasting local fare made over an open fire be appealing? What about a sommelier giving them a talk on wine pairings?

Team Building activities

Networking is one of the benefits employees seek out during incentive events. Your superstar guests have earned some bragging rights. When else can they be on the same team as their CEO during a scavenger hunt or pulling the same rope as part of a tug of war. Sack races and other typical Central American carnival games can be mixed in to the competitive fun. Teambuilding serves many purposes, from fostering creative thinking to building problem solving skills, and our natural environment provides the ideal setting. We consult with you and offer challenging, fun activities to allow guests to learn and connect with peers in an enjoyable setting.

Give Back Programs/ CSR (Corporate Social Responsability)

Being grateful for what we have and giving back are important. We consult with you to understand what project works best with the time you have allotted and how it aligns with the company’s values. Give back programs can range from helping improve a local school, teaching and interacting with kids, to environmental and conservation projects, like reforestation efforts. Depending on group size and activity level, we can split into smaller teams and create different experiences to choose from. The bonds they create with local communities as well as with each other through these shared projects will stay with them upon return to their work life.

Giveaways and special requests

Personalized gifts are important as part of the incentive experience. Would you like special accessories for a themed party dropped off at each room before an event? How about some edible delights such as chocolates, rum or Costa Rican coffee to take back home? Handmade souvenirs by local artisans can also make a special addition. Your corporate logo engraved on local wood or leather handcrafts are beautiful and useful keepsakes. Panama hats, traditional textiles, masks and baskets made by indigenous people, are original and decorative. We are here to take requests and suggest options as part of our consultation services.

Décor options

Your incentive program might have very formal speaking sessions as well as casual brainstorm breakouts. A cocktail party where everyone can mingle and move around, followed by a formal served dinner in the evening. Lighting and projection options for indoor and outdoor events are modern and versatile, and having lush trees or giant rocks as natural screens make for stunning effects. Tablescapes using natural flowers can be rustic or elegant. We design different installations for you, and coordinate flower arrangements, signature ambiance scents, balloons with specific color schemes, beautiful tablescapes and more.

In summary, these are our guiding lights:

Values

As a Destination Management Company that thrives in the travel and tourism industry, we value what our country has achieved, and pride ourselves by constantly working with local communities in environmental and social programs which contribute to the society´s wellfare and the protection of our natural resources.

Freedom is the essence of being Costa Rican. Our country abolished the army in 1948 and dedicated those resources towards education and health care. That decision has paid off, and many decades later, Costa Ricans are some of the happiest people in the world.

Pura Vida, or “Pure Life” is a saying that defines us. We say it several times a day, as a greeting, a goodbye, as an agreement, as a state of mind. It is whittling down to the essence of what makes us happy as human beings: pure life, being authentic.

The team has a built-in framework that allows excellence to be delivered every step of the way. Our employees identify with the Memorable Brand, and are committed to delivering on each of their responsibilities as well as assisting their coworkers with theirs.

Empowerment and thinking outside the box finding innovative solutions to challenges at the drop of a hat is crucial in this fast-moving business.

Our values center around the concept of working well and living well. Quality of life allow our collaborators to be healthy well rounded and creative individuals. Take care of yourself and every other aspect of your life falls into place.
