In the travel industry, travel professionals are invited to attend FAM trips. These trips aren't free and they are designed to familiarize yourself with the destination and the properties. This hard to do when you arrive late on a Sunday night, travel 600 kms over two days and head home on the morning of the third day.
I had a quick tour of Dreams Las Mareas, Secrets Papagayo, Occidental Papagayo, Villas Sol, The Weston Reserve (was called the Golf Resort) Conhal, Villas Playa Samara, Occidental Tamarindo. I love Costa Rica from what I saw and want to go back. I will do a future podcast and give you information on these properties.
