Costa Ricans are lucky enough to be able to enter 150 countries without a visa. While not quite as good as the Japanese, who can enter 190, it’s still enough to keep a traveler busy for a lifetime.
With a little extra work of getting a visa, we have access to another 76 nations. Some of them are applied for online and others at a consulate. If there is not a consulate of the country in Costa Rica, documents are mailed to a third country that has one.
Vacationers and culture enthusiasts can buy airline tickets to explore the world after getting visas in order. We can see the famous streets of New York and the pandas in China.
Keep in mind that some countries require a visa even just to pass through or make a stop at the airport for a connection. With a little research and some visa application fees, the world is at our fingertips.
