“In 2006 Costa Rica had only an indirect flight to Europe; At present, there are eight airlines offering flights between Europe and Costa Rica, seven of them directly and one with a stop, which is evidence of the great leap that has taken our country as a result of its strategy in attracting airlines”, Minister Revelo said.

As to the figures, in 2017 there were 383,066 Europeans arrivals, while in 2018 the number increased to 414,722, with the majority coming from Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and Spain.
