While in 2012 it was 54.16% and in 2011, 53.9%.

Gustavo Araya, president of the CCH, told La Nacion the increase can be attributed to several factors, including a higher positioning of the country abroad and the crisis in the East.

“The position of the country is still very good and the crisis makes the American tourist decide not to cross the Atlantic and stay in the American zone,” said Araya.

Expectations for the 2015. Tour operators say they are positive for 2015, expecting an increase in both foreign visitors and national tourists.

Araya added that Costa Rica offers stability in terms of security and democracy, critical issues when foreigners decide to visit a place.

The CCH president the name Costa Rica represents a curiosity for many wanting to come to the country, as a result of the success of the national soccer team in the World Cup in Brazil.
