Planning A Corporate Retreat in Costa Rica: Why Tamarindo (+ 3 Incredible Venues)

What better way to thank your employees for a job well done – for outstanding performance, superior leadership, and everything else they do to go above and beyond – than with a corporate retreat in Costa Rica? This is the out-of-the-box incentive, whether it's a well-earned corporate getaway, an annual meeting, intimate tête-à-têtes, or management/leadership retreats. There's sun. There's sand. And there are endless opportunities for bonding: surfing and snorkeling, ziplines and sunset sails, volcano hikes and hot springs soaks. And so, we're going to kick off our Guide to Corporate Retreats in Costa Rica with this post. But, we promise – there's so much more to come!

Why Tamarindo?

Once a funky fishing town, today Tamarindo lives by a motto of "surf, eat, and have fun". This Gold Coast mini-metropolis is one of Costa Rica's hottest tourism hotspots, packed with everything from golden sand and cerulean sea, to incredible restaurants and hopping nightlife. The town curves along the bay between Playa Grande, Playa Tamarindo, and Playa Langosta, forming a trifecta of popular surf spots, both crowded and secluded, that are easily reached on foot or via beach cruiser. Bottom line: Tamarindo is the beating heart of Costa Rica's Gold Coast, packing some of the country's best restaurants, most luxurious vacation homes, eclectic nightlife, and unforgettable things to see and dointo one compact town. And that's a great recipe for a memorable corporate retreat that everyone will work hard to earn.
