The country that truly has something for everyone-from surfing to shopping, wildlife watching to white-water rafting, beach-lounging to golfing-Costa Rica has it all! Our locale in this stunning country is in the North Pacific Riviera in Guanacaste Province, a region rich in culture with a lush and varied landscape. The local scenery ranges from pristine beaches with Pacific-blue waters to dry tropical forests with semi-active volcanos. Our home will be at The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal, offering a wide range of amenities, world-class dining, and stunning views of the magnificent landscape. You can choose your adventure in the area's lush mountains, in the crystal-clear waters of local white-sand beaches, or on the resort's championship golf course.

I was surprised how dynamic the instructors were, and the twist they were able to put not the subject matter to keep my interest. I will definitely be making Western CPE my in-person conference CPE vendor of choice in the future.Patricia W., SVP, Finance and Operations
