Horizontes excels at planning and facilitating corporate and group meetings within San Jose and the surrounding central valley, but they truly specialize in planning unique experiences and excursions in more remote regions of the country.

These excursions provide opportunities for visitors to get out of the city and see Costa Rica’s spectacular scenery and wildlife, all while interacting with the innately friendly Costa Rican people and their culture. Activities such as rainforest hikes, whitewater rafting, sea kayaking, tree canopy zip lining, scuba diving, coffee plantations tours, butterfly farms and wildlife viewing are just some of the activities that can be planned as part of a meeting and incentive program.

Sustainability is a key consideration for Horizontes, and it informs almost every aspect of their meeting and incentive travel planning services. Every meeting by Horizontes is designed minimize negative impacts and to positively impact the local culture, economy and environment where the meeting is held. Horizontes is committed to working with local shops, hotels, lodges, restaurants, tour guides, outfitter and other businesses that practice these same principles. Every Meeting by Horizontes is sure to be on the cutting edge of sustainable and eco-conscious practices.
