ACV Dream Makers in Costa Rica

FAM Trip Feedback: ACV Dream Makers in Costa Rica

with Vickie Sam Paget

Open Jaw asks agents: What was the highlight of the #ACVDreamMakers Mega FAM to Costa Rica for you?

Ramona Marte, 1-2-1 Travel Connections.

The Ecological Mix

“I’d never been to Costa Rica and I now have a totally different idea about what I have to offer to my clients when they ask me about it. The mixture of the ecological side of it and the beaches—Costa Rica is the full package.”
Ramona Marte, 1-2-1 Travel Connections

Holly Evans, Terra Travel Consultants Ltd.

ACV Happiness

“I hadn’t been on a FAM trip in many, many years – and this has just been beyond anything I’ve ever been on. The detail, the care and the happiness that each staff member at ACV put into it—it made it really, really special.”
Holly Evans, Terra Travel Consultants Ltd

Laura Weaver of Sunrise Travel Services.

The Educational Experience

“I’m bringing a group to Villas Samara in April so it was amazing to meet the owners and have the chance to ask them about some of the needs of my travellers. I also liked meeting a lot of travel agents and the staff at the resorts. Everybody has been so amazing; it’s been such an educational experience.”

Power to the People

“I have to say the wildlife—the monkeys and the iguanas. And the people are super-friendly. I’ve been to different Caribbean countries and the people are friendly, but I’m finding here that they are super-friendly. There’s no hassle.”

Ami Hisanaga of Centre Holidays.

Mother Nature

“The nature. People go to the zoo to see that, but here it’s all around you. And the noise—the birds chirping when you wake up in the morning and the frogs and the cicadas at night. If you are a person who likes nature, this is the place for you. I also love the coffee and I’m not even a coffee drinker!”
Ami Hisanaga of Centre Holidays

Pankaj Dawda of Travel Edge.

Attention to Detail

“ACV have done a great job with this FAM, because they have paid attention to detail. Every little thing was taken care of; they dotted the ‘I’s and they crossed the ‘T’s. And the people—I think our group is what made the FAM a success as well.”
Pankaj Dawda of Travel Edge

Tracey Alexander-Mitchell of Robert Q Goderich.

The High End Treatment

“This is my first FAM ever and it’s been a very good experience. I love that we got to see some high-end properties and they treated us like they would their high-end guests. It’s going to be a lot easier for me to sell these properties now.”
Tracey Alexander-Mitchell of Robert Q Goderich
