QCOSTARICA – Starting October 15, Costa Rica will open its air borders to tourists from Central America, the objective being reactivating regional tourism and jobs in Costa Rica.

According to the Instituto Costarricense Turismo (ICT), in 2019, there were 144,330 arrivals from Central America: Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.

The strategic importance of Central America and Panama for Costa Rica is business tourism, which is the main travel reason for those who choose the airway to visit us from these countries.

According to the surveys carried out by the ICT, the stay of those who visit us for business and professional reasons is 8 nights on average for those arriving at the Juan Santamaría in San Jose and 7 nights on average, for those who enter through the Daniel Oduber Quirós airport in Guanacaste.

Currently, 44 countries, including Canada, the European Union (Schengen area), UK, Japan, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, China, Jamaica, New Zealand, Thailand, Uruguay, and Mexico; and residents of New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, Michigan and Rhode Island, Ohio and California are authorized to enter Costa Rica.

On October 15, residents of the states of Texas, Florida and Georgia will be added to the list or authorized arrivals, while on November 1, Costa Rica’s air borders are open to all U.S. residents.
