Costa Rica Reopens to All US Residents November 1

Published on 16 October 2020

COSTA RICA WILL WELCOME RESIDENTS FROM ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES BEGINNING ON NOVEMBER 1. PREVIOUSLY, ONLY RESIDENTS OF CERTAIN, APPROVED U.S. STATES WERE PERMITTED ENTRY INTO THE CENTRAL AMERICAN COUNTRY.

For 20 years now, CRDA has been serving the travel industry as one of the U.S.’ main tour operators to Costa Rica, providing personalized vacations to individuals, couples, families, and groups. The company’s U.S. offices are located in Atlanta, Georgia, and its Costa Rican offices are in San Jose, providing 24/7 in-country customer support.

“This is the good news we have been waiting for. The country has established new vacation protocols that will make travelers feel safe and secure that we will be there for them. Protocols start from the moment travelers arrive until they take their flight back home. We’re ready to meet again,” said the local government.

DMC companies have established new health and safety protocols amid the pandemic, which aligns with guidance from the Costa Rican government and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
