Costa Rica Corporate Travel

I would rather be Rafting Pacuare River
When Costa Rica is mentioned you think more of an ecotourism, family adventure, beautiful beach type destination. One thing that does not come to mind is getting off the plane in a suit and tie and jumping into some adventurous business planning.

With the recent infrastructure or hotels in the San Jose area, Costa Rica is looking to market another branch of Tourism. The market in Costa Rica back in the 70's was surfers searching for the great waves on the Pacific and Scientist for the Monteverde Cloudforest and lowland tropical rainforest. It slowly over the years changed to an ecotourism destination when companies started setting up adventure and tour companies to come see some of the many natural wonders in Costa Rica much of which my company offers today. 

With 50 years of no army and heavy education and a focus on health care Costa Rica developed in to one of the most educated countries with the best healthcare in the region. It was just a few years ago that a new tourism market burst on the scene and that was medical tourism in Costa Rica. Many of the private hospitals, doctors, and hotels in the central valley of San Jose area have opened it's doors to the industry of Medical Tourism working together making it a growing industry every year.

The most recent market to come on the scene is Corporate Tourism and is a market that should not be overlooked by tour operators and hotels. It is becoming so big that some hotels are in the process of being built just for the Corporate Market. It is exciting and you might start seeing some guys with suits and ties rafting some of Costa Rica's rivers during their corporate travels. You just better remind them so they don't forget that their Crackberry's are not waterproof.
