intrepid groupIntrepid Group is aiming to grow ‘sustainable tourism’ beyond its borders’ to multiple destination in the region with operation base in Costa Rica.

 

 

Peak Central America will be housing 12 operations staff and 70 tour leaders, there will be another four operations staff based in a satellite office in Mexico which is the main point of arrival in Central America.

 

Tours will be operated in all eight countries in the region and multi-country, cross-border itineraries  by the destination management company.

 

Intrepid Group chief executive James Thornton opened base in San Jose as the latest addition to Intrepid’s  network of DMCs.

 

Costa Rica’s Capital has an extensive eco-tourism experience and commitment to the environment that led to the selection of Intrepid as its Central America base.

 

It was reported last year that Costa Rica produced 89% of electricity without fossil.

 

Thorton further added that Costa Rica has been a guiding light for ecotourism in Central America, there was a huge appetite for sustainable travel across the globe and immense potential for the development of product from Costa Rica throughout Central America.

 

Bradley John-Davis the general manager of Peak Central America had been appointed to the new role due to his involvement in cross-border trips as the general manager for Peak East Africa.

 

Travellers flock to few places even though Central America is diverse, but things are changing with countries like Belize and Panama getting popular.

 

The new base will open three months after an office in Japan with Iceland that was being named as the location for Intrepid’s  20th destination management company.

 

In 2005 the opeartor’s first detonation management company was opened in Vietnam.
