Central America: MICE news and highlights

The summer holidays are finished long time ago, we have overcome the back-to-work blues and are preparing for winter time. Cold weather, rainy days, frozen toes…the perfect time for some summer inspiration and answer your crave for palm trees.

Central America; sunny and exotic
Central America exists of various of destinations, all interesting MICE and business getaways with a variety of activities and facilities to offer. Each destination is different, but all sunny and exotic. Herewith we share the latest highlights and MICE news facts of Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua and Honduras with you:


“Hotel Central” is a charming boutique hotel that offers 130 rooms and is located in a renovated 1874 building. This extraordinary place in Panama will be opening its doors in the center of Casco Viejo in December 2016.


Costa Rica
Air France recently launched a direct flight from Paris to San José, Costa Rica, in November 2016 (2 flights per week). This brand new connection is a good example of the non-stop flights from Europe to Central America that are on the rise. It will be additional to the other direct flights to Panama City launched by Air France, KLM and Lufthansa.


The famous Casa Santo Domingo is a boutique hotel located in the 16th century remains of the Santo Domingo de Guzman convent. Good to know: this magnificent place in Guatemala offers a new meeting and event venue on top of a hill where guests can overlook the colonial city of Antigua. Spectacular views of the valley and its volcanos guaranteed.


Until now it was a challenge to organize an incentive program in the “hidden tropical and Caribbean treasure of Central America”. The flights were not easy to find (unless they were combined with Guatemala) and that was the main reason for that. A new direct flight launched by Copa Airlines – going from Panama City to Belize City – will solve this problem and creates new opportunities for MICE and business trips to Belize.


National Geographic has just completed shooting a documentary about the volcano Masaya and its impressive “lava lake”. The adventurer and film maker Sam Cossman and his team spent 34 days on the volcano in Nicaragua. A few feet from the magma in fusion they shot the most amazing images of the Masaya. The movie premiere is planned for early 2017. A good way to start an inspiring 2017.


“Las Verandas” is a remarkable project that is going forward on the Caribbean island of Roatan, in the archipelago of the Bay Islands. This project exists of villas and 18 charming bedrooms that are available for groups. A real fairytale accommodation alongside the turquoise waters and the coral reef of Honduras. What else to wish for?
