Airports in Costa Rica are going to welcome tourists from the United Kingdom, Canada, and the European Union in a few days, yet experts recommend Costa Ricans put off traveling abroad for at least several more months due to economic uncertainty and the covid-19 pandemic..
Experts also point out that many locations have closed their attractions. Some may have limited access to hotels and food as well, greatly reducing the benefits of visiting them for the time being.
Those who feel they cannot put off leisure travel, as is recommended, may choose a destination where they have friends or family who can help them in the case of an airport closure or an isolation order from local sanitary authorities.
If you must travel for work or study, make sure to have an additional emergency budget available for unforeseen issues such as airport closures. Always keep a list of the numbers and locations of Costa Rican embassies and consulates nearby.
