A Luxury Corporate Retreat That Wows Everyone? Only in Costa Rica

Tourist arrivals in Costa Rica have grown 7.4% each year since 1990, and it continues to be a popular destination for vacations, weddings, wellness, and corporate retreats. 

If you’re planning a luxury corporate retreat to Costa Rica, you have a lot to consider. You’ll need to plan everything down to the last detail, or your Costa Rican dream trip could turn into a disorganized disaster.

Luckily, this guide will show you how to plan a retreat that people will be talking about for years to come.

Planning Your Retreat

Planning a luxury corporate retreat isn’t something you should rush. You have a lot of logistics to deal with and you need to create a workable itinerary. Some common mistakes to avoid include:

Planning Too Late

It’s best to have your budget and general ideas for your retreat figured out ahead of time. The most popular time to visit Costa Rica is from December – April. You’ll have plenty of sunshine, but it’s also peak tourist season. 

On the other hand, May – June and September – November are the most inexpensive times to travel. September and October are Costa Rica’s rainiest months, but you’ll still have plenty to see and enjoy if you go at this time.

Not Having Enough Fun and Relaxing Activities

Your luxury corporate retreat must have enjoyable activities to balance out the more professional team-building goals. Consider zip lining, an evening wine tasting, or some other group activity. 

Keep your itinerary fun, invigorating, and inspiring so your team will be brimming with wonderful memories and shared experiences when you return to the office.

Using Different Companies That Won’t Work Together

The logistics of planning a corporate retreat can be a nightmare because you have to coordinate flights, accommodation, food, and activities.

Everything in a corporate retreat needs to run smoothly, so you need to take extra care when planning an itinerary and look for all-inclusive accommodations to make everything run seamlessly.

One of the best corporate retreat ideas is booking an all-inclusive resort like the Vista Hermosa Estate that allows you to coordinate all the services you need all from one place.

Hosting Your Corporate Retreat at Vista Hermosa Estate

Vista Hermosa Estate is your go-to destination when it comes to hosting your corporate retreat. It’s located in Manuel Antonio, an idyllic beach town on the west coast of Costa Rica.

You can visit Manuel Antonio National Park, Manuel Antonio Hot Springs, or go river rafting, tubing, or snorkeling. Any one of these activities could serve as a team-building exercise. 

This Costa Rica beachfront villa has all the amenities that will make your retreat run smoothly and give you the best opportunities to bond with coworkers.

Vista Hermosa Estate offers a five-star luxury experience covering all your corporate retreat needs, from meals to scheduled events, evening functions, and relaxation time.

A few services and amenities you can expect at Vista Hermosa include:

Exclusive Concierge Services

Vista Hermosa will take care of all the little things that take up so much of your time when you’re planning your luxury corporate retreat.

Once you’ve booked a reservation for your corporate retreat, your personal concierge will contact you to start planning for your arrival. He or she will:

  • Arrange your transportation from the airport
  • Coordinate your retreat events
  • Schedule your first meal upon arrival and breakfast the next morning
  • Ensure you have your requested items like beer and wine
  • Ensure the rooms are pre-stocked with snacks and soft drinks

Though you’ll find many places to eat in Manuel Antonio, you can relax as soon as you arrive at this resort because you won’t need to shop for food or worry about where you’ll have your meals.

Vista Hermosa Estate has a personal gourmet chef on staff that will prepare two meals a day during your retreat. The ingredients will be locally sourced from high-quality suppliers and your chef will choose only the most natural ingredients for your meals.

Your gourmet chef can also accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions, preparing vegan or vegetarian dishes by request. You can also add lunch each day for an additional cost if you’re on an excursion that doesn’t include lunch.
