(QTRAVEL) The tourism industry has always been a big part of Costa Rica’s economy. We have some of the most beautiful beaches, an unrivalled biodiversity, and volcanoes as well as other landscapes to explore. Millions of tourists from around the world visit Costa Rica each year.

These past few years, however, there has been a big shift in the demography of tourists coming to the country. In the past year alone, younger tourists have been visiting the country more. There has also been an increase in Asian travellers visiting the country. These changes are brought about by travel websites and blogs.

More Influence Than Ever

The best travel websites are no longer large tour corporations and big names. The most visited sites are now personal blogs of travellers and their social media profiles. The personal perspectives presented by these bloggers are changing the way travel information is shared, including information about Costa Rica and its tourist destinations.

On the other hand, we have reviews and testimonials about the travel amenities and tourism destinations across the nation. Those who are planning their next vacation can do research on Costa Rica and learn from other travellers’ experiences in the country. This information, in turn, will affect the way they plan their upcoming vacation and whether they decide to visit Costa Rica after all.

A Welcome Change

While the changes are happening online, the majority of stakeholders across Costa Rica are actively embracing the change. The travel industry is a big part of the economy, with thousands of people depending on tourists. It is not surprising to see hotels, travel organisers, tour operators and other stakeholders – including locals – taking active steps towards maintaining a good online presence.

Smaller tour operators, for instance, are taking advantage of the internet to promote their businesses. There are web hosting plans designed for small and medium enterprises. There are even templates and scripts that work for the travel industry out of the box.

Getting started is also very easy. If your business is yet to have a website, you can click here and pick up a suitable domain and hosting package. A lot of locals are even starting their own travel blogs to help promote tourism and travel destinations in the country.

A Growing Platform

The internet is becoming an essential part of Costa Rica’s own tourism industry. Travel websites and blogs are really changing the landscape of the industry in this country and other parts of the world. Not taking advantage of this growing platform would be such a waste.

Local businesses are also realising the importance of maintaining good customer satisfaction. Directory pages are being claimed, and hotels in Costa Rica are known to be among the highest rated in the world because most of them deal with online complaints proactively.

All of these changes are good for the industry and the local economy. If you aren’t part of these changes just yet, starting your own travel blog, helping local businesses go online and doing other things that will help promote the country’s tourism industry are all very easy things to do.
