Crocodile Bay, Costa Rica is a four
star resort equipped to accommodate our executive retreat
groups seeking to explore one of Costa
Rica's most ecologically intense regions! We offer executives
access to bilingual, private guides who will astonish you
with their knowledge of Costa Rica's flora and fauna.
Imagine the Possibilities
Imagine, it is the dead of winter and your executives are waiting the conference room at 4:30 AM after being told to pack a simple overnight bag. In walks in a person holding a simple index card with instructions and the retreat begins!
The clues will lead them to a set of envelopes that contain keys, a cell phone, some random tools and further clues.
They will break up into small groups and the race begins without them knowing where there journey will take them.
The group will eventually find themselves at the airport airline counter, asking where they are going. Miami?!
At the Miami airport they will be approached by strangers (Repario staff) and given more clues and a key. The clues lead them to the right lockers where they will find their passport and new overnight bag filled with tropical attire. The final clue in the locker will lead them again to the airline counter where they discover they are on their way to San Jose, Costa Rica.
This is just the beginning of an incredible experience your group will have. If we can do this with the drudgery of travel, imagine what we can do in a place like the Oso Peninsula where they fly by charter the next day.
While we include many of our traditional activities and signature Repario facilitation, the Oso Peninsual offers other possibilities.
