Other requirements to enter Costa Rica as a tourist — including a negative PCR coronavirus test and insurance — remain unchanged.
“This will allow us to reactivate tourism so that companies can work, at least, above the equilibrium point during the high season, which runs from November 2020 to May 2021,” said Tourism Minister Gustavo Segura.
The announcement came as American Airlines made their own announcement that they will offer coronavirus testing for travelers visiting Costa Rica.
From the 15th October, passengers flying American Airlines to Costa Rica from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) can choose one of three options to get tested:
- Take a sample from home during a virtual visit with a medical professional.
- Get an in-person PCR test at a CareNow urgent care location.
- Take an on-site PCR test at DFW, administered by CareNow.
Passengers flying American Airlines to Costa Rica from Miami (MIA) can also participate in the program, though for the time being, only the at-home test is being offered.
American Airlines is among several U.S. carriers that have begun offering coronavirus testing to encourage travel and help passengers fulfill entry requirements. The Fort Worth-based airline becomes the first to announce such a programs for its Costa Rica routes.
