Food and Beverage (F&B) functions are often the most memorable elements of a program. These events are where participants have many rewarding experiences. A program’s meals, cocktail parties, and even a snack greatly influence participants’ perception of how the overall program is operating. Our staff recognizes this and manages every aspect of every function, oftentimes waking up before the first egg is cracked and retiring only after the last cocktail is poured. They work long, hard days to ensure the flawless execution of a program’s meals and parties.
We review all Banquet Orders to ensure that the food is set up on time, seating is available for all participants, and that charge is done at contracted prices for only the quantities ordered. We also resolve questions regarding menus, times, themes, and signage. Our staff on site identifies VIPs to banquet servers, monitor service quality during the event, and stay with the function until its conclusion.
Influenced by both its climate and its history, traditional Costa Rican cuisine uses profusely tropical fruits and vegetables, prepared with recipes that combine indigenous and European influences.
The food staples of Costa Rican diet are local agricultural products: rice, beans, vegetables, fruits and dairy products, many kinds of meat and native recipes based on corn. Costa Rican cuisine is mild and does not abuse of spices. Only some meat sauces use moderate amounts of chili.
Meat is often served with corn tortillas, potatoes, sweet potatoes or yucca. Plantains, similar to bananas but bigger, are often used as vegetables and are also another Costa Rican stale. They need to be cooked, and can’t be consumed raw. They are prepared in one thousand ways: boiled, fried, roasted…

Our staff on site is responsible for details such as reviewing pre-registration sign-ups with suppliers. They must cross-reference activity maximum numbers with the sign-up lists to ensure clients have enough space for all of their participants. We will coordinate transportation to and from the activity spot, order box lunches if necessary, and inform participants of their departure time, suggested attire, and relay any other pertinent activity information.

Moving attendees from one place to another is a basic requirement of almost every meeting or corporate program. This may be as complex as organizing an arrival day shuttle with various buses to take guests from multiple airports to multiple properties, or it may be as simple as arranging a single 4X4 transfer to drive guests to and from dinner.
Either way, transportation is tricky. When it runs as planned, it goes unnoticed. However, if one transfer is late, one bag is left behind, or one bus gets lost, an entire meeting program can be tainted. We know what questions to ask and how to plan ahead so that all attendees moves, regardless of how big or small, run smoothly and with a backup plan.
