An Introduction to Premio DMC

What our clients say

  • Premio is integral to the success of our programmes in Costa Rica and we would not entrust our clients with any other destination management company. AReA plans and executes incentive programmes around the world and not only is Premio the best DMC in Costa Rica, they are one of the best DMCs with whom we have had the pleasure to work.”

  • Not only did Premio DMC make us feel like our business was important, they carried the value and personal attention throughout the planning and execution process. They were very responsive to changes and questions and I felt they were very fair as well. The end result was a great trip with excellent guides and supervision.

  • Unbelievable team! Started with Miranda from start to finish. She is professional, calm, organized and detail oriented. She does not miss a beat. An absolute joy to work with. And the team she assembled for my programs was incredible. From the guides to the drivers to the hospitality desk staff, I and my team were very impressed. Seamless from start to finish! Well done all!

  • It would be impossible to list all of the ways that Premio Incentives exceeded my expectations. I work with companies such as Premio all over the world and this has by far been my best experience. The level of service, professionalism, friendliness, spirit to serve, and just overall customer service was phenomenal.

  • Miranda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely helpful during the planning phases and on site. She was extremely knowledgeable about the venue and was helpful when the CSM was not always onsite. Her, Arturo, Odir, and the whole Premio team were great. Everyone was super friendly and made our experience in Costa Rica stellar! Looking forward to another program in Costa Rica to work with the Premio team!

  • The Premio team in Costa Rica has been the most impressive, and most seamless experience I have had with a DMC supplier. They are true professionals and will do everything they can to assist on every level. No question is too crazy! Miranda Louis is incredible! She is so great to work with, and she is such a professional in the industry and I could trust her on every level of the program.

  • This was the smoothest incentive trip I’ve ever done. You and the rest of the team made my job so much easier. I never had to worry about transportation or activities; you were always on top of everything.

    Tim Stephenson
    Senior Event Manager, Acxiom Corporation 
  • Miranda and her team were very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. The client and attendees truly appreciated their help and commented highly on the staff. I could rely on Miranda to help with organizing alongside the resort as well. I could not have pulled off this event without her!
    I have never worked with a DMC who not only delivered above and beyond the services quoted, but truly worked as a partner throughout the process.

  • Karla with Premio was a great guide for a US company hosting an incentive trip to Costa Rica. She would offer suggestions based on her experience that proved to create an excellent experience for our guests. They only use the best guides, locations and vendors. She really knows how to give guests a taste of what Costa Rica has to offer! read more
