Howdy! BHGH just learned of changes to entry requirements for one of your Chief Travel Gurus favorite places – Costa Rica – including dropping mandatory travel insurance.
Here are the new protocols according to the Visit Costa Rica Website:
As of August 1, 2021, all tourists under 18 years of age can enter the country without a travel policy and all tourists who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and inoculated with Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson can enter the country without a travel insurance policy. The last dose of the vaccine must have been applied at least 14 days before arrival in Costa Rica. Tourists not vaccinated, with incomplete vaccination or vaccinated with a serum other than those admitted by the Costa Rican authorities, must purchase mandatory travel insurance that covers lodging in case of quarantine and medical expenses due to COVID-19 disease.
