During our ongoing coverage of the 18th annual MLT University, hosted by popular tour operator MLT Vacations, Travel Agent sat down with Ken Pomerantz, president and chief marketing officer of MLT Vacations, and learned that the operator will be officially announcing new offerings to Costa Rica this Wednesday.
We were told MLT will be adding five new excursions in Costa Rica as well as five new hotels, although we did not get the names of the new properties. One of the new tour offerings will be a hiking tour, followed by a canopy tour, ending with a stop at some natural hot springs for some much needed relaxation.
"Latin America continues to be one of the hottest regions in the world and Costa Rica is one of the hottest spots in that region, so MLT is pretty pleased that we are able to expand our product there," Pomerantz says.
MLT also recently added a new honeymoon program in Costa Rica as well as a new luxury program. And that's not all the fast-moving operator is doing in Latin America.
MLT is also also expanding its Belize offerings by offering several dive products.
Pomerantz attributed MLT's growth in Central and South America to a partnership it made at last year's MLT University when it announced a new agreement with Globus Tours, which has a healthy portfolio in Latin America.
