Please note that preferred airline and seating preference are not guaranteed. Official program travel dates are Sunday, November 10 – Thursday, November 14, 2024.

Arrival Transportation

If you fly on official program travel dates, transportation will meet you as you exit the airport to take you to the hotel.

*Note: Throughout the duration of the President’s Club Trip, transportation will be provided for all organized activities. You will only have to rely on outside transportation if you decide to extend your stay for a personal vacation or explore on your own.

Tips for Packing & Preparing

Attire

  • Daytime events and most evening events are be resort casual.
  • Our awards event is resort dressy – think the type of outfit you would wear to a nice dinner while on vacation.
  • Once you select your activities, check for any specific rules to participate in the activity. Some require close-toe shoes or strongly recommend bathing suit attire, etc.

Outlet Adapters

Outlets in Costa Rica are the same as US / Canadian outlets, so plan accordingly if you are traveling from another location.

Currency

The Costa Rican colón (CRC) is the official currency of Costa Rica. Most credit cards are accepted with MasterCard and Visa as the most widely accepted, although a small bank charge may be applied to convert the charge to another currency. US dollars are accepted in Costa Rica, especially in the tourism sector. However, some businesses may only accept US bills up to $20, and you’ll likely get your change in

colones. There is an ATM next to the front desk that will disburse colones and US dollars, but the hotel bars cannot always provide small bills in exchange.

Expenses

As you plan for the upcoming trip, please keep in mind the following guidelines for President’s Club expenses. Sovos will reimburse expenses for you and your 1 guest.

Airfare

Airfare will be paid in advance by the company. Baggage fees may be expensed to cover one bag each for employee and 1 guest for flights to and from Costa Rica

Transportation

Transportation costs to and from the airport as well as airport parking from November 10 – November 14 will be reimbursed.

Time Zone

Costa Rica is -6 hours Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). The country does not celebrate Daylight Savings Time, so from mid-March to October, the time is the same as Mountain Standard Time (MST) in the United States. From November to mid-March, the time is the equivalent of Central Standard Time (CST) in the United States.

Meals

Meals on travel days and at destination on days where group meals are not sponsored by the company will be reimbursed. To accommodate higher costs at destination, per person meal limits (excluding tax and tip) have been adjusted as follows:

  • Breakfast – $15/person
  • Lunch – $40/person
  • Dinner – $80/person
Miscellaneous
  • Activities not scheduled by the company will not be reimbursed
  • Receipts for alcohol will not be reimbursed (excluding drinks consumed during meals which are covered by meal limits noted above).
  • Hotel amenities and personal expenses (facilities, movies, magazines, toiletries, etc.) will not be reimbursed
General Expectations
  • All President’s Club expenses should be submitted no later than December 1, 2024
  • Submit expenses as a standalone report, named “P-Club 2024” to ensure proper tracking and allocation
  • Various expense types should be reported as a single line (i.e., meals reported separately from other expenses)
  • Provide itemized receipts for all expenses
  • Convert all expenses to USD. If necessary, Finance will provide an exchange rate to be used for conversion

As always, we understand there will be exceptions and judgment applied in many circumstances which will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis
