Incentive – Me and my team
Incentive travel has long been used as a motivational tool for improving employees’ productivity and strengthening relationships with customers and partners. According to business reports, incentive travel generates expectations which gives employees a clear goal and keeps them focused for a longer period than the motivation of monetary bonuses.
Costa Rica has become a popular destination for MICE tourism (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events), specially for small groups. This will definitely make a difference in your ROI since travelling in small groups will allow you to bond more, will give you access to places not accessible to larger groups, and will give you the possibility to stay in cozy and unique boutique hotels, creating a sense of intimacy and privacy for you and your group. If this matters to you, then Costa Rica is the place to be.
As a destination, Costa Rica offers plenty of exciting activities – national parks, volcanoes, beaches, white-water rafting, surfing, world-class sport fishing, golf, and rainforest exploration.
Creating unique and custom-made itineraries that fit your needs as a group, and building unforgettable experiences are essential to a successful and memorable incentive trip. From engaging and fun team-building activities to an unforgettable dinner by the Pacific Ocean, from one-of-a-kind and sustainable boutique accommodations to interacting with local communities, we will make sure that your next trip to Costa Rica will be hard to replicate.
What to do to make our team better:
As we said before, team-building activities abound in Costa Rica. And although there is lot to see and do, we would like to present you with our top three:
Pacuare River Rafting
Rated one of the top rivers in the world, you’ll experience the intimate nature of the rainforest as you raft right through it on 19 miles of Class III-IV white water. The warm water, cascading waterfalls, and opulently lush rainforest with its brilliantly colored plants, animals, and birds indulge your senses on every level. This world-renowned rafting adventure takes place in spectacular jungle canyon. The high walls, fast waters, and lush vegetation makes this an adrenaline intense adventure, for true thrill-seekers.
Canopy and Zip Lining Tours
Costa Rica is world-renowned for its canopy tours, also known as zip-lines. Imagine sailing through the treetops hundreds of meters in the air with a chance to spot some of the country’s diverse wildlife. Don’t worry, safety is a top priority. With nearly a quarter of the land covered with rainforests, there are dozens of locations and companies to take you on this thrilling adventure. Though many of Costa Rica’s national parks offer canopy tours, the best are in Monteverde, Arenal and Manuel Antonio.
It is truly one of the best ways to explore Costa Rica and capture aerial vistas of the rainforest.
A great ending for any trip to Costa Rica. After doing a bit of physical activities during the first part of the trip, head to the Pacific Coast to end your incentive tour on a high note. Beach hopping, surfing, snorkeling, sailing or simply enjoying the beach are popular activities that could be planned and done.
Giving back to the community.
All of our programs will have a space to reflect and give back to the community. We call it the “Let’s make a difference” time. Remember it is all about the experience, and what can be greater than the feeling of helping, donating, planting trees. Feel the connection with the community we are visiting. This is an integral part of our Incentive Programs.
We will donate the equivalent to 2% of the total cost of the trip to a charity of your choice. The donation will be made in both our behalf and your behalf (either corporate or individual). You can choose from one of the local organizations we usually help or work with. We strongly encourage a personal visit to see where and how the money or the donations are going to be used, as well as to spend some time in that community, school, conservation area, etc, to interact and learn more about those we are helping. This will be an inspiring and life changing moment.
