Post-Covid Tourism Recovery is happening fast in Costa Rica and we expect to receive as many guests in the second half of 2021 as in 2019.  We have been preparing for this surge in demand since last December and we are ready. And grateful for every guest that visits us after such a tough year.  We are also excited to see more and more families come back and enjoy their vacations with us. 

Here an update on some of the things going on at our hotels:

We are shooting new videos for Arenas del Mar and Senda and have been on the road with Costa Rican Filmmaker Andre Robert for two weeks.  We don’t want to do just another “promotional hotel video” but rather a short movie that really captures the beauty of Monteverde and Manuel Antonio and the essence of the Cayuga Collection experience.  Find below some samples of Andre’s work while in Monteverde.

In this process of tourism recovery, we made sure to continue to invest in our teams.  They have been amazing during this whole pandemic – and are even more amazing right now hosting and serving our guests.  The Cayuga Way is well and alive.  We continue to invest in our sustainability programs and have put a special focus on gender equality. 

We have hired more women than men at our hotels in the past months. And that includes women in leadership positions. This is the restaurant team at Arenas del Mar in Manuel Antonio.
We have reactivated our company doctor program providing access to medical care for our staff even in the most remote and rural areas of the country. We all understand the value of health now!
Sustainability continues to be a key ingredient in the Cayuga Experience. We are reviving old projects that were on hold during the pandemic and innovating with new ideas.

In May, we hosted two important travel journalists from the US at Kura and Aguas Claras.   We showcased our “Coast to Coast” experience that is an ideal option for honeymooners looking for something unique and special. 

Planting trees the morning of our flight at Kura.

We started the day by planting four trees to offset our carbon footprint in Kura’s private nature reserve.  After breakfast with views of the whale’s tail and the Pacific Ocean, we took a short 40-minute flight to Limon and were swimming in the Caribbean before lunch at Aguas Claras in Puerto Viejo. See images of this flight in the video below.
