Masks off, travel advisory lowered, and spectacular deals on flights…The time to visit Costa Rica is now!
Just this past Wednesday, (May 11th, 2022) President Chaves mask mandate removal decree was published in “La Gaceta”, which is a requirement for decrees to become laws. You no longer need to wear a mask in an enclosed space. Masks are only required for medical personnel and patients requiring medical attention.
In April, the U.S. Department of State lowered the travel advisory for Costa Rica to a level 2 of 4. Prior to the pandemic Costa Rica was at level 2. Lowering the travel advisory is positive news in regards to tourism and helping the Costa Rican economy recover. During the first quarter of 2022, Costa Rica has recovered 63% of visitations registered in the same period of 2019.
