Costa Rica DMC was founded in 2003 by Mauricio Arevalo and Irene Montealegre, both Costa Rican, and passionate for the beauty and diversity of our country and always looking for the best ways of experiencing this unique eco destination.
Mauricio started in the tourism world very young at the age of 20, working as a tour guide for shore excursion groups when he was a Hotel Management student, later was hired to supervise tour operations. In 1993 designed and operated his first incentive group for Chrysler and completely fell in love with the corporate groups and started the first DMC company with his former employer. Many years of effort, learnings, discoveries and developing new ideas in Costa Rica went by and finally in 2003 Mao and Irene took a leap of faith and opened Costa Rica DMC Inc.
Today Costa Rica DMC Inc. offers sophisticated design & production of exclusive events, deluxe travel programs, and complete destination management services in Costa Rica with at team of 12 talented professionals. The team is headed by Gabriela Sanchez VP of Sales.
The company has two fully staffed offices. The one in San José services the Central Valley, Arenal, and the Central Pacific destinations. Our second office is conveniently located at the Liberia International Airport to service all Northwest beach destinations in Guanacaste and Arenal.
Since its foundation Mauricio and Irene, have traveled the country extensively to experience and identify the best activities, dining experiences with a local appeal, and unique lodging for their sophisticated audience.
Consistent service is the cornerstone promise, and they pride themselves in creating the perfect atmosphere and opportunities for your guests to live out incredible stories and unrivaled experiences.
Keeping always in mind the reasons why they took that decision 17 years ago, is why Costa Rica DMC has always been true to the foundations that today so proudly their promise is and continues to be:
To present a transparent, fair and reliable DMC, we know Costa Rica inside out and we believe the best ambassadors are our people. All our staff is born and raised in Costa Rica, we support the local businesses and entrepreneurs and we invite you to buy local, but most importantly we like to build great long-lasting relationships with clients and make it fun for all of us in the process.
