The Costa del Sol: tours for incentive trips
An exciting way to explore the natural landscapes and scenery of the Costa del Sol are buggy tours. A number of companies offer these sorts of experiences in different parts of the province, such as Marbella and Mijas. You’ll jump into a buggy and drive along tracks and trails, enjoying the panoramic views and the fresh air.
Are you looking for boat tours in the Costa del Sol for your incentive trip? These sorts of experiences are ideal if you’ve got something relaxing and chilled in mind. Countless companies based along the Costa del Sol coastline offer cruises in catamarans or private boats so you can soak up the sunshine, enjoy the sea and gaze at views over beautiful coastal destinations like Benalmádena, Estepona, Nerja and more. Some of these excursions also stop off so you can enjoy activities like snorkelling. As if that weren't enough, you can also enjoy tasty cuisine on board such as paella and barbecues.
Our next recommendation is also sea-based, albeit a bit heavier on the adrenaline. Hop on board a sailing boat and whizz through the waters of the Costa del Sol coastline in a thrilling team regatta. Feel the strength of the wind power the boat and enjoy a feeling of freedom like no other. This exciting experience is ideal for incentive trips and team building activities.
Tapas tours, and wine and food tastings
Tapas tours are a wonderful way to get an idea of what the province has to offer from the culinary point of view. Visiting markets, bars and restaurants, trying local traditional dishes such as porra antequerana, ajoblanco and pescaíto frito, is a great way to whet the appetite during your incentive trip.
The Costa del Sol is also renowned for its gastronomy and wines. A fantastic idea for your incentive trip is to go for a wine tasting at a local winery or food tasting in a traditional local restaurant. Not only are these experiences a whole lot of fun, they are also educational as they give everybody taking part the opportunity to learn about the culture and history underpinning the local food and wine.

The type of tour you choose depends on the sort of incentive trip you are organising.
