TORONTO — Travel agents can get to know all the ins and outs of Costa Rica with a new specialist program hosted on Travelweek’s Learning Centre.
As an added incentive, agents who complete the online course before January 2021 and become a Costa Rica Specialist will be entered into a draw for a US$300 gift card at localkeeps.com.
Specifically designed for Canadian agents, the program provides a general overview of the country’s attractions, climate, geography and more. Agents will learn about its different regions, its many national parks and its incredible natural beauty. Costa Rica boasts 1,228 kilometres of coastline and comprises 5% of the world’s biodiversity.
Other highlights of the program include various itinerary options for different group types, including adventure, beach, wellness, romance and family, the latest COVID-19 protocols, Costa Rica’s most popular activities and how the country is leading the way in sustainable tourism.
“Costa Rica is a fantastic year-round destination where Canadians can enjoy some free time with their families or alone, do exciting adventure activities and enjoy nature while sipping a great cup of coffee or discovering new meals,” says Adalberto Rodríguez, Costa Rica Tourism Board. “It’s just a few hours away and is home to friendly people who will always give a helping hand.”
Rodríguez adds: “Through research, we have found that travel advisors always look for an official source to get Costa Rica knowledge. This online learning is particularly needed in these unprecedented times when physical presence is not possible, helping to keep Costa Rica top of mind among both agents and travellers.”
