One year after opening borders
The Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) reported that the country recovered almost half of the tourists who entered the national territory prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, after a year of the reopening of borders.
According to the data between August 2020 and July 2021, more than 766 thousand foreign tourists entered the country, which represents 49.88% of the visitors between 2019 and 2020.
The Minister of Tourism, Gustavo Segura, also announced that during July of this year there was an increase in the number of tourists, being the month with the highest visitation.
Segura assured that the opening of air borders was adequate to safeguard the employment of companies that depend on the sector.
The Digital Nomads Law was recently signed, which seeks to attract foreign tourists with flexible working conditions so that they can telecom mute from Costa Rica.
