Costa Rica

More than one million tourists visit Costa Rica each year. Impressive scenic beauty, a consolidated system of protected areas, high educational levels, and an efficient infrastructure characterize this small country on the Central America isthmus.

The North Guanacaste region of Costa Rica boasts more than 62 miles of coastline on the Pacific coast featuring white-sand beaches and intense blue sea. This area of beautiful landscape fostered a successful agricultural and cattle industry.

Nature lovers will have a difficult time choosing what to explore. In the foothills and lowlands, Costa Rica's rainforests house thousands of known life species and thousands more yet seen. Monkeys, armadillos, sloths, deer, and squirrels are just a few of the most commonly seen mammals. Crocodiles, iguanas, and various species of lizards also live here. Those who venture beneath the seas will find Costa Rica's oceans teeming with fish and countless other creatures of the deep. There is no better place to find an untouched, natural world.

PLANNING AHEAD

What will the weather be like? What should I pack?

November in Costa Rica is warm. Expect it to be sunny with a chance of rain. Temperature averages this time of year are lows of 73° F (23° C) and highs of 88° F (31° C).

Pack light, comfortable clothing, including walking shorts, capri-style pants, light trousers, short-sleeved shirts, and dresses. Make sure you pack a pair of comfortable sandals or shoes, and don't forget a swimsuit, sunglasses, and sunscreen. You may want to bring layers such as a sweater or wrap, for possible cooler evenings.

How much luggage can I take?

Most carriers charge a fee for checked luggage. Please check with your airline for current fees. Baggage allowance and costs vary by destination and fare type. Your carry-on must be able to fit in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you.

What items should I keep with me in my carry-on luggage?

Please pack your valuables and things you will need within the next 24 hours in your carry-on luggage. These include (but are not limited to) your passport/government issued ID, credit cards/cash, laptop, cell phone, jewelry, glasses, contact lenses and solution (note size limits), and medication.

What items are prohibited in my carry-on luggage?
For an up-to-date list of items banned from carry-on luggage, please visit: http://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/prohibited-items
Should I purchase travel insurance?

Because unforeseen circumstances may arise, we recommend that you purchase travel insurance to protect any personal travel arrangements you may make or medical situations your health insurance may not cover while away from home. We suggest you consult your insurance provider to determine what coverage you will have while traveling.

We recommend Arch RoamRight’s® Pro Plus Plan, which includes coverage for trip delay; emergency medical treatment or evacuation; lost, stolen, or damaged baggage; or baggage delay. Please note that this plan does not include trip cancellation. Coverage begins once you depart on your trip. The plan also includes non-insurance services of Worldwide Emergency Assistance supported by UnitedHealthcare Global. For more information or to purchase a travel insurance plan, click here.

Do I need to have health insurance coverage in order to travel?

We highly encourage all travelers to carry proof of health insurance coverage. Mandatory health insurance coverage for entry into foreign countries can be required. Participants can be denied entry into countries that request proof of health insurance coverage and are unable to provide documentation. Medicare coverage does not apply or cover any medical needs outside the U.S. unless travelers have supplemental insurance such as Medicare Advantage and Medigap.

FLIGHT ARRANGEMENTS & INFORMATION

What kind of airfare is included in my package?

The Midwest programs includes round-trip economy class airfare for two from your home city on the group arrival and departure dates. Flight reservations are made in group blocks out of Salt Lake City, Boise, and Denver. If you have any special requests, please include it in the registration process. Additional costs may apply if you choose an alternate departure city, or to extend your stay, upgrade, or travel on alternate dates.

If deviating from group block air: How long do I have to confirm my itinerary after a Flight Coordinator has contacted me?

Once you have notified Midwest that you would like to deviate from the program dates, you will be contacted by one of the professional Flight Coordinators. Ticketing suggestions are made based on the preferences and parameters you set in your registration, and then ticketed pending your approval. Please keep in mind most itineraries will expire within 24 hours if not ticketed, and all fares are subject to change until ticketed. If you have any special requests, please be sure to include them during the registration process (including frequent flyer number, seat preferences, etc.).

Will I earn frequent flyer miles for my flight?

If you have a frequent flyer account with the airline you will be flying on, you may be eligible to earn miles for your flights. Mileage accrual methods vary from airline to airline, and some tickets may not be eligible for mileage accrual as dictated by the fare rules. Airlines with agreements (One World, SkyTeam, Star Alliance, etc.) typically allow mileage accrual on partner airlines. Check with the airline for specific information about mileage accrual eligibility.

Can my TSA Known Traveler Number (KTN) or Redress Number be attached to my reservation?

Please provide your KTN or Redress Number during the registration process. Please be advised that the name on your ticket must match the name on your KTN application and the name on the identification you are using to travel or in order to receive TSA Pre-Check benefits.

I would prefer to book my own flights. Can I do so? If so, how do I get reimbursed?

If you choose to purchase or obtain your own air for different arrival and departure dates, an air allowance of 7,000 POINTS credit, per person, would be deducted off the Midwest Points total program. Please remember that any deviation from the group space may require that your own transportation be obtained to the Westin, if the dates are other than the Midwest program.

The Morris Meetings and Incentives Flight Coordinator would be happy to look into cost of tickets for a possible deviation or upgrade.

What dates/times should I book my flights to arrive/depart?

Please make your flight arrangements to arrive/depart from the main international airport in Costa Rica (Daniel Oduber International Airport, LIR).

  • GROUP ARRIVAL DATE: November 6, 2021
  • GROUP DEPARTURE DATE: November 12, 2021

We ask that you forward your flight details by September 24, 2021 to ensure your transportation can arranged. Once we receive your flight itinerary, we will book a transfer on your behalf. If you book your flights outside of the program dates, you will need to may your own transportation arrangements between the airport and the Westin hotel. If you need assistance with this, contact Event Support at 801-483-6444 or eventsupport@morrisincenitves.com.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

UPGRADES

Can I pay to upgrade to First Class/Business Class/Premium Economy?

If you choose to upgrade your flights, you would need to purchase your own airfare. An air allowance of 7,000 POINTS per person would be deducted off the Midwest program as an air allowance.

The Morris Meetings and Incentives Flight Coordinator would be happy to look into cost of tickets for a possible deviation or upgrade.

Can I use my frequent flyer miles to upgrade?

Morris Meetings & Incentives does not have the ability to view mileage upgrade availability, and cannot quote the number of miles needed to upgrade. If you wish to use frequent flyer miles to upgrade, we suggest taking an air credit and speaking with your preferred airline directly.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

TICKET CHANGES / CANCELLATION

Is there a fee to change my flights?

If you are utilizing the Midwest group block, please check with our Flight Coordinators to determine what options might be available.

Most airlines permit changes to be made to your ticket any time prior to departure, and most airlines require change fees in addition to the difference in fare. All airlines charge difference in fare for flight changes, even if they do not charge a fee for changes. Most airlines charge a $200 change fee for domestic flights, and some flights to Canada, Mexico, and South America; change fees for international flights can be $300-400 depending on the airline and the destination. Please check with the airline directly, if you booked it outside the group block.

What if I need to cancel? Can I use my ticket in the future?

If you are utilizing the Midwest group block, no future value is available.

If you have booked reservations outside the group program, unless otherwise stated, all tickets are non-refundable and expire one year from the date of issue. Fares are subject to change at any time based on availability, and are not guaranteed until ticketed. Any cost associated with changes made beyond the 24-hour cancellation time frame after the tickets have been issued will be at your expense, including penalty fees and applicable fare difference (fare difference may apply for changes made within 24 hours). Unless previously agreed upon, neither MMI nor the program sponsor will cover the cost of change fees or fare difference for voluntary changes and/or name corrections.

What if the name on my ticket does not match my identification?

In order to be in compliance with the TSA Secure Flight Program, both the TSA and the airlines require that the name on your reservation matches the name on the government-issued photo identification you present at the airport. This requirement supersedes any requirement for airline frequent flyer accounts to match the name on your ticket, and you may need to submit a request to have the name on your airline frequent flyer account changed to match your I.D.

Can I change the name on my ticket or my guest's ticket?

If you are utilizing the Midwest group block, please contact Brent Jensen at Midwest at 801-975-6166 or brent@midwest1938.com if you are unable to travel, and wish to do a name change.

If you have booked reservations outside the group program, unless otherwise stated, all tickets are non-transferable, which means that the name on the ticket cannot be changed. If your name is misspelled, or if you need to make a minor name correction, please contact the Flight Coordinator who booked your tickets. Be advised that name corrections made after the 24-hour free change and cancellation period may be subject to a name correction fee.

Unless previously agreed upon, neither MMI nor the program sponsor will cover the cost of change fees for voluntary changes and/or name corrections.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

SEAT ASSIGNMENTS

Will my preferred seat type be assigned for me?

Flight Coordinators will do everything possible to assign you in your preferred seat type (e.g. window, aisle, bulkhead, etc.). However, seat requests cannot be guaranteed. If your preferred seat type is not available, a Flight Coordinator will assign the best seat type available.

Should I be concerned if I don't have a seat assignment? What if my guest and I aren't seated together?

In some situations it may not be possible to pre-assign seats at the time of booking, or assign you and your guest(s) seats together. This is either because all pre-assigned seating is full, or the airline has an open seating policy. If you do not have seat assignments when you arrive at the gate, (or if you wish to change your seat assignments), you may speak with the gate agent about available seats. A limited number of seats are held exclusively for gate agent use on the day of departure. As these seats are limited, it’s best to arrive at the gate at least an hour prior to departure for the best availability.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

CHECKING IN FOR YOUR FLIGHT

24 hours prior:

We strongly suggest checking in online for your flight. Online check-in is typically available within 24 hours of flight departure time. You can also pre-pay luggage fees, reconfirm/change your seat assignment, and sign up for flight updates. If you are ticketed in a group space booking, you will only be allowed to check in on your day of departure at the airport, to find out which type of ticket you have been issued, please contact your flight coordinator.

Day of Departure:

Please reconfirm your itinerary prior to leaving for the airport, as schedule changes and flight delays are common. You can also download the airline's mobile app to access your boarding pass and view flight changes/updates.

For international flights, the standard recommendation is three hours prior to departure. However, recommended arrival times vary by airport and may be longer, so it’s best to check the airport website. This time accounts for parking, shuttles, check-in/baggage drop-off, security screening, and arriving at your departure gate no later than 30 minutes prior to your scheduled flight departure time.

At the airport:

At the check-in counter or kiosks, you’ll be asked to present your identification and check your luggage (if any). If you are checking luggage, please verify it is checked through to your final destination (LIR). Keep in mind gate assignments can change, so keep an eye on the airport monitors for flight updates.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

AT THE AIRPORT

When should I be at the gate?

Most airlines close the boarding doors 10 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time to allow time to complete final paperwork and baggage loading. Whenever possible, passengers should be at the assigned departure gate no later than 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time for domestic flights. For international flights, passengers should arrive 45 minutes prior to scheduled departure time because gate agents will need to re-verify passports prior to boarding. Please check with the airline carrier, for their specific recommended gate time frames.

When does boarding begin?

Boarding typically begins 20-30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time for domestic flights, and 45-60 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time for international flights. Depending on the connection airport, connecting flights may only allow as little as 30 minutes between the first flight arrives and the second flight departs. It is imperative that you get to your next gate as quickly as possible, and if needed, find a restroom within the vicinity of your next gate or use the lavatory onboard your next flight. Please check with the airline carrier, for their specific recommended boarding timeframes.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

When will I receive my travel documents?

You will be emailed your personalized Travel Summary a few weeks prior to travel. We will be preparing a mobile app* which will be available several weeks prior to the trip. The app will be a wonderful and easy to use resource while you are on the go! Our app will include the agenda, trip information, answers to frequently asked questions, and more.

faq-section row-start col-sm-12 row-end

GETTING TO THE RESORT

Will someone be there to greet me at the airport when I arrive?

Transportation will be provided for all guests who arrive on designated travel dates. After departing the aircraft, you will need to collect your luggage. Once you have collected your luggage please look for staff holding a Midwest sign and identify yourself. If you are arriving early or staying later than the designated travel dates above, you will be responsible for your own transportation.

What is the transfer time between Daniel Oduber International Airport and the The Westin Golf Resort & Spa?

The transfer time is approximately 1 hour (37 miles).

What is the check-in time at the hotel/resort? What if my flight arrives before then?
