Abercrombie & Kent Expands Into Costa Rica With DMC Opening

Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) has announced its expansion into Costa Rica with the opening of a destination management company (DMC). The strategic move reinforces A&K's commitment to providing travelers with journeys that combine luxury, exclusivity, and cultural immersion. Costa Rica's natural beauty, rich biodiversity and dedication to sustainable tourism make it an ideal addition to A&K's global portfolio.

Martin Froggatt, chief destination officer at A&K Travel Group, said: "Costa Rica consistently ranks as a top seller among our Central American destinations, it made perfect sense to set up operations here. Now, we're ready and enthusiastic to design outstanding travel experiences that deeply connect visitors to the distinct features of this remarkable destination."

A&K operates the world's largest network of luxury destination management companies (DMCs), with over 55 offices in more than 30 countries. The company partners with premium and luxury travel companies who provide on-the-ground services to tour operators, cruise lines, and meeting and incentive groups. A&K DMCs also work with travel advisors on a business-to-business basis to deliver seamless service from arrival to departure for guests on tailor-made itineraries.

By setting up their own office, A&K hires and trains local staff, purchasing equipment and building the infrastructure needed to support sustainable tourism. They provide job opportunities to a diverse workforce of more than 2,500 citizens of the countries where they operate, along with on-going training in subjects such as computers, accounting, first aid, driver training, mechanics, history, geography, natural resources, and conservation. 

Beyond delivering travel experiences, A&K remains committed to making a positive impact in the communities it operates in. Through its philanthropic arm, Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP), A&K actively supports community partners involved in education, healthcare, conservation, and enterprise development. The launch of the Costa Rica DMC will enhance AKP's efforts to contribute meaningfully to local communities, aligning with A&K's responsible approach to luxury travel.

The opening of the Costa Rica DMC marks an important milestone for A&K as it continues to expand its presence across the globe, while redefining luxury travel through its expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to creating transformative moments.
