Costa Rica Escapes’ Meeting & Event Planning services specialize in hosting luxury & premier corporate and incentive travel programs throughout Costa Rica. Our knowledge, relationships, experience, creativity, and personalized service offer an exceptional resource to your travel and event planning team should you decide to host your group event, board retreat or incentive trip in Costa Rica. We focus our efforts to meet your goals and strive to exceed your expectations for the travel program.
Many businesses choose to hold their corporate events in Costa Rica due to the diversity that the country offers. With tropical rainforests, jungles, and cloud forests, miles of gorgeous coastline along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, volcanoes, waterfalls, and incredible wildlife, Costa Rica is impressive and very safe! If you want to give your colleagues and/or employees a unique travel experience, reward them with an incentive program or host a special board retreat, you couldn’t choose a better place.
Over the last 6 months or so, my organization worked with the CRE team to plan a corporate retreat to Costa Rica. The cost of the trip was in excess of 6-figures, and was extremely high profile for my organization. To say that the trip was a success would be an understatement. John Rabenau, John Vargas, Marcela Lopez, and their colleagues at CRE planned the most wonderful trip, and their hands on approach and attention to detail was most excellent. The feedback from all our attendees was overwhelmingly positive, and that’s a testament to CRE’s professionalism and expertise. We are so grateful for CRE’s assistance with our travel needs and would certainly use their services again in the future. We would also recommend CRE without reservation.

How We Work
As professional meeting specialists, our mission is to be your partner in developing and implementing an extraordinary meeting and/or incentive program. Our role extends to all aspects of event planning while providing logistical support services throughout every phase of your program.
Costa Rica Escapes will assist you to design the perfect travel experience to fit your needs. With plenty of qualified hotel partners and suppliers, we are more than happy to arrange a traditional one-stop travel itinerary or we can be creative and offer you unique ideas for multiple destination experiences to exclusive, high-end boutique resorts in remote areas of the country.
Costa Rica Escapes will efficiently plan, negotiate and operate your business meeting or incentive trip, while providing access to the best value available. We will manage the myriad of details needed to plan a successful event. Using extensive knowledge and well-established in-country relationships, we will propose specific hotel partners, outfitters and vendors that will best suit your needs according to your goals and guidelines.
Once you make your preferred selections, our role is to negotiate the best terms possible and ensure that all contracted items are delivered exactly as requested. This will enable you to have full input on the program and events, but without having to carry out the time-consuming work that goes into pulling it all together.
The guest experience that CRE provides offers a personal and flexible approach. We value the details and want to fully understand your goals and expectations for this important investment. From the first conversations, throughout the planning process and well beyond the end of your meeting or event, we take pride in sharing our knowledge and expertise with you and your group.
