Try a new approach to Incentive Travel with an amazing Return on Investment!

Have you found it hard to get all of your employees on the same page and have them fully embrace your company culture, especially when so many are now working remotely?

Are you looking for a unique way to bring your team together to get to know one another, improve problem-solving skills and enhance communication?

>>Take your employees on a Work Away from Home Adventure in Costa Rica at Villa Costa Vida!<<

We invite you and your corporate group to come to Villa Costa Vida to decompress from your rigorous meetings and work schedule and we'll throw in some active fun and adventure so you all go home with extraordinary memories of sharing time together in a breathtaking, tropical location.

Villa Costa Vida in Manuel Antonio offers the perfect blend of relaxation or functionality for your team to interact and work remotely. We have amazingly fast Internet and Apple Airplay so your team can share, collaborate, and Zoom as needed.

The perks:

  • If you're into yoga, throw your mat out on our outdoor lawn or up on the rooftop terrace and enjoy the sounds of nature and breathtaking views.
  • There is plenty to explore and do in and around Manuel Antonio - we can set up team-building activities like "Beach Olympics," or "Amazing Race," or go on an adventure to the Osa Peninsula, rafting, canyoning, hiking, Stand Up Paddling, boat rides, snorkeling and so much more!
  • Hire a private chef if you want some extra gourmet love.  
  • After a productive day, you can gather in the dining room or relax on the rooftop terrace and enjoy your time to mingle and converse face to face.  
  • Need to get some work done… You can go Geek out in a room by yourself or find a quiet niche on one of the five floors of our spacious villa.

Here's what a recent corporate client had to say about their A Work Away from Home Adventure with us:

"Even before COVID, we had a large number of virtual employees based all over the world," explained Jon Moser, of Connecticut-based tech company FinalSite. "We found that we were able to do the work just as well from home as from the office."

Moser said that by giving his employees the option to work from home or come into the office if they choose has been one of the best ways to ensure employee satisfaction.

Moser decided: "why not introduce a Work Away from Home Adventure where our employees could fly to Costa Rica and stay in a luxury Villa with their colleagues for a week to work... and play?"

Finalsite covered the cost of all travel and food expenses for employees which are deductible costs for the company. Moser commented that sending his employees to Costa Rica is a unique and sought-after incentive for his employees and provides a great return on investment.

The interest in the program by his employees from around the world was overwhelming. One participant commented:

“This magical week has come to an end and while I’m sad it’s over I feel so lucky to have been involved with this outstanding group. With everyone being distributed due to COVID you forget about some of the connections that can form when everyone is together - we arrived as strangers and left as friends. This has been a team building experience that I won’t ever forget.”

The FinalSite group was able to combine work and play -- several members added adventures to their stay such as a visit to the remote and wild Osa Peninsula for some of the best wildlife viewing in the country. Others chose whitewater rafting, canyoning, and hanging bridges, and then they all came back to cook together or enjoy delicious, gourmet food prepared by a private chef back at the villa -- no better way to encourage staff to work and interact together.
