Docherty Incentives & Meetings Presents: Costa Rica

Posted On: January 15, 2018

Costa Rica is a dream. It is like no other place since groups and individuals can explore vastly different ecosystems located in the same country. This month, Docherty Incentives & Meetings invites you to take a peek at this small country located in Central America that has something to offer each person from your team or customer group.

“Pura Vida”

Costa Ricans live by the ideal of “pure life” also known as an easy-going lifestyle. This is mostly from their agrarian and Catholic history. Don’t let that laid-back island energy fool you: there is so much to do and see while your employees or customers travel to Costa Rica. What better way to work as a team than zipping through the jungle, or building relationships while horseback riding near an active volcano? With waterfalls, rainforests, volcanos, seaside views and more, Costa Rica truly has it all to offer.

Top 10 Best Things About Costa Rica

  1. Cultural Delights: We can arrange coffee farm tours, visits to pineapple plantations or points of interest along the bright San José streets like the many opportunities for nightlife as well as lovely museums.
  2. Zip Lining: One of the best ways to experience the rainforest is by zip lining throughout the canopy. Have your group test their strengths together, overcome fears and most importantly—soak up the beauty of the rainforest’s natural wonders.
  3. Tortuga Island: This beautiful island is perfect for enjoying water activities and relaxing on white sand beaches. It’s a must for those groups looking to be both active and soak up the tropical weather. Plus it is the nesting spot for green turtles.
  4. Sailing: Docherty can arrange a catamaran adventure for your travel incentive recipients, so they can experience a completely different view of Costa Rica.
  5. Water Activities: Snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, whale watching, fishing and more await your team. Our most recent program in Costa Rica included a rafting excursion that will never be forgotten! See our Facebook album with pictures from our latest program
  6. Volcanic Adventures: With numerous volcanos throughout the island, you can witness these breathtaking mountains, hike along trails near volcanoes and trek to hot springs. The Poas Volcano National Park is home to the magnolia tree and a marmot variety among other sights.
  7. Hot Springs: There are so many ways to experience these thermal baths. Some are adjacent to waterfalls, some include expansive views of nature, while others are housed in luxurious spas.
  8. Taste Local Cuisine: Of course a trip to Costa Rica wouldn’t be the same without enjoying the traditional cuisine of rice and beans as well as an array of fresh fruits like papaya, watermelon, pineapple, banana and cantaloupe. Often our groups have a celebratory banquet together at the beginning or the end of an incentive trip. Costa Rica does it right with music, dancing, great food and excellent entertainment.
  9. Team Building: When taken out of their typical element and routine, one of the great things about Costa Rica is the opportunity for visitors to learn about themselves and the people they work alongside during any number of team-building outings, activities or excursions.
  10. Flora & Fauna: Monteverde is home to the astounding and awe-filled Cloud Forest Reserve where there are rope bridges and miles of hiking trails. The Manuel Antonio National Park is home to the three-toed sloth as well as hundreds of varieties of birds among many other amazing animals.
