The condominiums are strategically aligned on the beach and offer gorgeous views. A café, dive shop, bar and swimming pools are all at each traveler’s disposal. If diving or fishing is a part of your corporate event itinerary, you will be delighted knowing that Ambergris Caye is home to the second longest barrier reef in the world.

Teams may also decide to go tubing. Many guests of Ambergris Caye enjoy tubing through the rain forests along the river. The Mayan Ruins are also another memorable sight that many guests enjoy visiting. Some companies incorporate the history of Ambergris Caye into their speeches to motivate the team to remain productive. Whether it is the spirit of Jacques Cousteau that inspires a team or the ingenuity of the Mayan people, there is something in the visit that can inspire teams to perform.

Golfing is also available for teams who want to stick to the more traditional side of a motivational retreat or corporate event. Most companies snorkeling and diving instead of golf because the event tends to be more memorable. In times where employee retention is paramount, managers want to be ensured that employees have a pleasant experience that results in bonding and loyalty to the company. Standard events do not quite have the same effect that some of the other events have.
