Travelers will have tourist-cultural guides to discover Costa Rica

Digital pamphlets were designed by the ICT and the Ministry of Culture

QCOSTARICA – National and foreign travelers will have detailed information to plan their trips thanks to the “Guías Turísticas y Culturales” (Tourist and Cultural Guides) prepared jointly by the ICT, the Ministry of Culture, business chambers and the municipalities of six tourist destinations.

The guides are available in downloadable digital format on the  ICT website or at Viajaporcostarica.com and Ictcapacita.com.

The first six guides in the series are dedicated to Sarapiquí, Tamarindo-Nicoya-Santa Cruz, Golfito-Puerto Jiménez, Turrialba-Jiménez, Los Santos and Monteverde.
