The tourism chamber survey indicates that 59% of tourism operators believe that this season will be “much better” or “better” than last year, while 34% said it will be the same and 7% are negative, looking for a “worse” season.

The high tourist season is when Costa Rica gets a high flow of tourist arrivals, requiring added services.

The Canatur survey that includes 205 business owners, hotels, tour operators, travel agents, car rentals and food services reveals a stagnant job market in the tourism sector.
