Other Important Travel Items
Some other important things to be aware of for travel to Costa Rica is that upon landing in-country, travelers must wear face protection and comply with the protocols of the air terminal with regard to physical distancing, disinfection of carpets, taking temperature readings, and any other sanitary instructions. Both the San José (SJO) and Liberia Airports (LIR) have been working hard to make the welcoming of tourists safe, and as easy and stress-free as possible, so visitors can feel confident while travelling to Costa Rica.
Aside from entry requirements, Costa Rica has re-opened all outdoor tourist activities, such as ziplining, national parks, surfing, jet skiing, white water rafting, sunset tours, waterfall tours, yoga, pilates and paddle boarding as well as much more! Some of these activities offer private options for your group.
