The latest statistics released by the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo (ICT) – Costa Rica Tourism Board – reveal that a total of 40,907 visitors from Britain traveled to the country in the first half of 2018 – representing an increase of 2.5% compared to the same period in 2017.

This steady growth is a reflection of the upward trend in British visitors to Costa Rica that has been seen in the last few years, strengthened by British Airways direct flights from London that began in April 2016.
