We just got back from a wonderful team trip in Costa Rica! We sure were missing Candace on the trip as she was holding down the fort at the IPG office back in Utah. It was a bonding experience for the rest of us as we enjoyed team breakfasts, talent shows, and even a impromptu hostel stay in Monteverde. We couldn’t have done this without our team and amazing clients who make this possible. THANK YOU!

Some of the team highlights were:

Scuba diving: Jeremy, Melissa, and Travis got PADI certified while we were there! They saw sharks, devil and eagle rays, seahorses, turtles, and plenty of fish. We went out a boat together where half the group scuba dived and the other snorkeled around.

Beach Time: The beaches were beautiful and were perfect for swimming around or snorkeling. We even went to one beach were the “sand” was entirely made of seashells! The water could not be more warm and inviting.

House time: We stayed at a magnificent house were there was more than enough to enjoy. There was a beautiful pool to relax and enjoy the sunrise, space for a few to get their workout in, cook amazing meals for each other, and even spot howler monkeys in morning or evening enjoying their meals as well!

Monteverde: I think this was one of everyones favorite adventure. The drive to Monteverde was around 3 hours and once we got there it was mid-day. Tours were closing up and we all didn’t feel like cutting this part of Costa Rica short. We decided to eat our lunch and stay in a hostel overnight so we could experience the cloud forest in the morning. We went through a night tour to see the animals, grabbed dinner, and went back to the hostel for the night.The sounds of the forest, dogs, and motorcycles kept most of us from getting much sleep but we all had a smile on our face in the end. The cloud forest is magical and we had a wonderful guide and time in Monteverde.

A great trip like that makes us all appreciate our teams efforts and our clients even more. To another strong year for IPG!
