About this trip

RETREAT & CORPORATE TRAVEL PLANNING

 Putting together a retreat or team building trip in Latin America and not quite sure where to start? We can take care of all of the logistics related to travel, transportation, accommodation, meals, and activities so you can focus solely on the retreat/trip content and tending to your clients. A lot more goes into the planning and coordination of international group travel than meets the eye and having someone to navigate cultural and language barriers and who knows the tricks of the trade can make all the difference. Heart of Travel is here to create the exact experience you are looking for be it in Guatemala, Oaxaca, Guanajuato, Costa Rica, Panamá or Ecuador so you can focus on your clients and enjoy leading your retreat or corporate trip. 

Our retreat and corporate travel planning services are perfect for people hosting the following kinds of experiences: 

  • Yoga Retreats
  • Holistic Healing & Wellness Retreats
  • Digital Nomad Retreats 
  • Entrepreneur Empowerment & Business Development Retreats
  • Corporate Team Building Trips 
  • Employee Appreciation Retreats 
  • Academic Trips (high schools, undergrad, post graduate programs) 
  • Intimate Conferences (Business or Academic) 

HOW DOES RETREAT & CORPORATE TRIP PLANNING WORK?


1. First, you’ll fill out and submit the brief questionnaire found here. It’s ok if you don’t have all of the answers, we can figure them out together on our first call. However, the more information you can provide us with in advance the faster we can narrow things down to meet your specific needs and interests. 


2. After we’ve reviewed your answers we will set up a time for our call. During this call, we will go over all of your answers, and answer any questions you have and chat openly to get a better understanding of the experience you’re trying to create for your participants. 


3. Within 5 business days from our initial call, we will reach out to you via email with a proposed itinerary and budget for your retreat based on the details provided in your questionnaire and during our call. Upon reviewing our proposal you’re welcome to request any edits or changes which we are happy to discuss via email, Whatsapp or phone/video call. 


4. We will get back to you with an updated itinerary and budget based on your feedback and we can continue making changes until we have all the details just right for you.


5. Once you’ve given us final approval on the itinerary and budget we will send you an invoice with the option to pay a deposit online or via check in the mail. Upon receiving your first installment we will finalize all of the reservations discussed.


6. Leading up to your trip we will be available to answer any and all questions that may come up. In the event, you want to make small tweaks to the itinerary along the way we are more than happy to do so whenever possible. As we get closer to your departure date you will be provided with the following information which you can share with your participants. We are more than happy to create a custom version with your branding for you to distribute if you’d like!

The Heart of Travel was born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture and adventure as well as a call to give back to the communities and people that had already provided us with so much. The travel industry has long been bombarded with double decker tour busses, beach front resorts and cruise ships, often at the expense of the local communities. As a response to this failing system, we began a boutique travel company that allows clients to explore new places in an authentic and non-touristy way, offering travelers a more intimate and unique experience all while removing the stress and hassle of researching, planning, bargain hunting, reserving and more that goes along with planning a trip or vacation.

Prompt service. Excellent driver and comfortable ride. Heart of Travel made my arrival from Guatemala City to Antigua very enjoyable. I would highly recommend their services.
This was my second trip with Heart of Travel and it was perfect in every way. The Parque Hotel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Dylan and Daniel were the best guides and Allie—an added bonus— The Heart of Travel’s photographer. Daniel, the local guide, is so knowledgeable that you will learn so much from him. Dylan also. The Restaurant’s Chelsea picked were all different and wonderful. Lisa, our food tour guide, gave us the best experience at The Market we went to. I loved Mexico City and I look forward to my next journey with Heart of Travel—where ever that may be. Thank you Everyone who made this trip so perfect and memorable. CRP
Even though I speak Fair Spanish, I was a little intimidated to tour Mexico City on my own, given the size and complexity of getting around. Our tour guide showed us the best of Mexico City, with no hassles.
We had an amazing time exploring the park and enjoying some fun ziplining! This part is so dense and green and there is an option of eating and having some drinks at the bottom of the park. There is so much to see and the bridges are a really fun part of seeing the jungle for all vantage points! Selvyn, our guide and driver, transported us to the park and spent time with part of my family who didn't opt into doing the ziplining and made them feel very comfortable as they waited for us. Could not recommend this adventure more!
This activity was simply the best! After a day of hiking el Volcan Pacaya we were taken to this spa and were in such a relaxed mode. We got to alternate the water circuits as well as have a free smoothie, a great couples massage, and tea. We spent a couple of hours simply taking pictures and exploring the spa. Very clean and wonderful customer service. Highly recommended! Afterwards we were picked up and taken back to our hotel in Antigua.
