Genuine Costa Rican hospitality and, of course, the country’s Pura Vida lifestyle: With an economy and culture built on sustainability, education and community, Costa Rica consistently ranks as one of the happiest countries in the world. Pura vida, a widely-used multipurpose phrase that simply translates to pure living, embodies the country’s easy-going, friendly spirit.

Coffee time! Costa Rica’s well-balanced coffee is regarded as some of the best in the world. Try a cup with some black beans and rice at breakfast or with arroz con leche for dessert. Plantation tours give groups the opportunity to learn about its cultivation and sample a blend or two. And, these delicious beans (along with a mug) make great gifts for meeting attendees and incentive travel participants.

The renovations of the two Marriott properties—the Costa Rica Marriott San Jose and Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort on the central Pacific Coast—with designs created to evoke the destination and the local nature in every detail.

Costa Rica’s amazing wildlife: While it’s a small country, Costa Rica has a mighty abundance of birds, reptiles and other animals including sloths (two- and three-toed!), white face monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds, iguanas, butterflies, howler monkeys, ocelots, and more.

The wide range of accommodation options (resorts, eco-lodges, boutique hotels, etc.) and carefully-designed experiences for individual incentives available in Costa Rica. You can give top performers the power to choose a trip based on their travel style—adventure, nature, food and wine, wellbeing or pure relaxation. You name it.
