The stay in the amazing and contrasting Costa Rica lives up the expectations of Incentive Houses and clients who are looking for high quality accommodations.
Costa Rica's diverse accommodations enable participants and clients of all kind of background to experience the country any way they wish. At TE Incentives DMC, we are proud to offer a comprehensive selection of Costa Rica hotels, which provide our clients with tremendous flexibility when assembling their program. No matter what type of accommodation they seek, we offer hotels to match every budget, group size, and destination type. We also offer convenient accommodations options near the SJO and LIR international airports.
Guest rooms are undoubtedly one of the most difficult and important areas to manage on a program, requiring the focus of very detail oriented staff. Questions such as which participants need two beds, a king bed, adjoining rooms, a smoking or non-smoking room, a suite, an ocean view, or handicapped access barely scratch the surface of possible rooming issues. For example, have the pre and post extensions set up correctly? Whose incidentals should be billed to the master account?
The staff in charge of the program knows exactly what to ask and how to research these questions. They work closely with the hotel’s staff, together attending to participants preferences. They also cross checks rooming lists and verify hotel occupancy the night prior to arrival day.
From mountain and jungle lodges to hotels, from small deluxe properties to resorts, the country offers chances for every taste, budget and need. Some of the facilities are Victorian mansions located in the heart of San Jose city, some others are far from the centre, deep in the nature, and all of them guarantee a caring attention, able to satisfy all needs, together with a comfortable and bright environment.
The services offered are numerous and varied: rooms with all sorts of comforts, impressive suites, attention to details, refined materials used for building, elegant decorative elements, bringing back of tradition and attention to modernity.
All different accommodations, regardless of where they are located, offer high-skilled staff to care for participants that wish to deep themselves in the magic atmosphere of an incomparable land.
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…
Costa Rica offers contrasting flavours to be tasted throughout the country, from nouvelle and typical cuisine to the best international options. Fresh and tropical exotic ingredients are the perfect touch to turn a simple menu into a seasoned master piece.
Dozens of menu choices not to mention signature dishes. What could be better than servers who often anticipate participants’ dining preferences the moment they come through the door? Whether it is a casual meal for lunch or a fine dining celebration, they will be treated with excellent service and delicious cuisine.
Beverages will always match the most exquisite meals. Dining in Costa Rica is truly a pleasant experience. The possibilities are deliciously diverse and can be enjoyed at restaurants and also at impressive sceneries.
The program activities are oftentimes the most remembered elements of an incentive or business trip. Activities offer participants a chance to relax between intense meetings, or provide a way for a client to reward top performers. We know how to manage this social aspect of the program, from reserving tennis courts or tee times, to scheduling snorkeling excursions or adventure tours. Our MICE specialists manage and coordinate between transportation companies, excursion suppliers, and participants to ensure that everyone has a great time.
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.
Costa Rica abounds with activities and sights to occupy the most active outdoor participants and those who just want to relax and rejuvenate. With such a variety of activities, clients will find something of interest for people with different profiles.
The country has a diversity of wildlife species and plenty of ways to view them. There are wonderful trips to the rain forest, the Arenal and Rincon de la Vieja active volcanoes, and nocturnal walks to observe giant sea turtles. If participants are the ocean lover type, they might stay above it or explore beneath it.
Surf themselves along the shore, or take them on a boat out on an exciting trip to do snorkeling or scuba diving and let them see brilliant marine wildlife.
