Welcome to Costa Rica.
FOR YOUR MEETINGS, INCENTIVE, CONFERENCE AND EVENT
A tropical hideaway with endless beaches, active volcanoes, rain forests, and amazing wildlife – located in the middle of the Americas, as small as it is, Costa Rica holds 5% of world’s biodiversity
It is renowned for the genuine hospitality of its people and for a strong tradition of democracy and peace.
A safe setting with all the comfort of deluxe hotels, modern meeting facilities, delicious cuisine, stunning landscapes, and an exciting mix of adrenaline-packed adventures and long sought-after relaxation, make Costa Rica the perfect choice for your meetings and incentive programs.
As the night grows dark, get ready for a personal encounter with the amazing phenomenon of bioluminescence and discover how the ocean glows. Those a bit more adventurous can step on the paddleboard and get a bit more up-close.
Nature and Wellness
Walk along nature trails to a spectacular gem hidden away: a waterfall with a bubbling turquoise pool, a tropical oasis for a refreshing dip. Then relax and restore your balance at a natural Spa with thermal pools result of volcanic activity.
Ziplines offer an excellent dose of adrenaline for everyone. This adventure takes you over and through the treetops, connected to strong cables from the safety of a harness. It’s an unforgettable journey as you fly gracefully through the air.

Why This DMC?
I am a Belgian who came to Costa Rica in 1998 on a 3-week vacation; soon I realized this was where I wanted to establish my home. The biodiversity of the country, as well as the friendliness and warmth of the people, captivated me right away. When I am not working, you can find me hiking and exploring every inch of my “home” country with my two daughters.
Our group events coordinated by Premio were over the top AMAZING! This group could not be easier to work with! Amazing response time with professional outcomes! Thank you Premio!

We know what gets asked a lot about bringing groups to Costa Rica Here’s our fast track answers, so you know.
Commercial international flights to Costa Rica land either at the San Jose Airport (SJO), also called Juan Santamaria Airport, 17 km (11 miles) northwest of the city, or at the Liberia Airport (LIR), called Daniel Oduber Airport, in the Guanacaste province.
Programs starting or ending in San Jose, going to the mid Pacific area or making a roundtrip of the country should use the San Jose Airport. Those programs taking place in the province of Guanacaste on the north Pacific coast should use the Liberia Airport.
Costa Rica is six hours behind GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), which makes Costa Rican time equivalent to Central Standard Time in North America. The country does not observe daylight saving time.
Costa Rica has the advantage of a perfect tropical climate. The average temperature is 70ºF (21ºC) in the highlands and from the high 70’s to the 90’sºF (21ºC to 32ºC) in the lowlands. Conditions are moderate all year round. The green season lasts from May to November, and the dry season lasts from December to April. However, even during the green season, the mornings are likely to be bright and sunny. Temperatures vary little between seasons; the main influence on temperature is altitude.
Costa Rica offers an option for everyone: adventure-filled activities (zip lining, white water rafting, mountain biking, jet skiing, snorkelling, ATV riding, etc.), wildlife observation, relaxation and wellbeing, sightseeing, culture, and gastronomy, to mention just a few. There is an amazing variety of activities to engage travellers of all types.
Gifts play a subtle, yet relevant, role at any program. As part of Premio DMC´s commitment to innovation and service, we produce an Online Gift Catalog with a remarkable collection of Costa Rican products on a yearly basis.
We routinely tap into local suppliers for unique and non-traditional destination gifts with all the local flair. We are a certified Women Owned business; as such, we support women owned businesses in Costa Rica, creating an ongoing chain that supports local entrepreneurs in a sustainable way.
