The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Firms like Disney and National Geographic will have their sights set on Costa Rica tourism for many years.
Both companies now offer special packages to Costa Rica, where the travelers can enjoy the natural beauty and recreational activities that the country has to offer thanks to its ecological wealth.
It is proven in its appeal for travel itineraries, but also in its beauty and quality of the services that visitors enjoy. These global brands must care about their good reputation, good name, and cannot risk to sell a destination that will not fit with the demands of their standards and their customers.
For example, National Geographic is promoting on its official website a photographic journey that combines eight-day experiences in our country and in Panama: four days per country.
In Costa Rica travelers tour to different parts of the Pacific coast aboard a ship called the National Geographic Sea Lion, which will take visitors by Herradura, Manuel Antonio, Osa Peninsula and Golfo Dulce.
The brochure indicates that visitors can perform activities such as kayaking, horseback riding, snorkeling, hiking through national parks and even swimming in the beautiful pristine waterfalls.
As for Disney, tourist sources said that the company appreciates the fact that Costa Rica is a special destination for families, given that it offers an attractive combination of ecotourism, sun and beach with environmental education, a special value to this renowned firm.
On the vacations by Disney website it shows that Costa Rica is the only Central American destination package: 7 days, 6 nights in Tortuguero, Arenal, Guanacaste and San Jose, including catamaran sailing, rafting, kayaking, boat tours,and visits to pineapple farms, among other activities.
Visitors traveling with this agency will have the opportunity to bathe in the hot springs of La Fortuna and to be able to visit an indigenous area, where they will design crafts.
Pablo Abarca, president of the National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur), said that Costa Rica has a strong and varied tourist offer, and is even seen as exotic.
“These changes correspond to the urgent task of maintaining destination competitiveness, to adjust to the demands of international tourists, but also the exploitation of the natural conditions around us, human talent to deliver a service better and better, to take advantage of opportunity to renew, innovate always offering new experiences,” said the executive.
Abarca coincided with Viviana Rudin, Promotion Coordinator of the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT): “These are the factors that enable us international trade and negotiations with wholesalers to position Costa Rica as an attractive destination, generating confidence to the market chain and consumers, that Costa Rica is a different destination that adds value to any vacation.”
