To enter Costa Rica you must prove to have an insurance that fulfills as least the following conditions:
If your international insurance fulfills these conditions, you must send proving documents before your trip.
There is now international travel insurance that covers medical costs - specifically also in the case of COVID - up to $50,000 and possible quarantine costs up to $2,000. Trawick International offers an attractive price, and both coverages are confirmed in one insurance certificate in English.
Also, there are two local approved companies in Costa Rica that fulfill the conditions of the insurance coverage:
Private insurance: Sagicor Costa Rica:https://tiendasagicor.com/
State insurance: Instituto Costarricense de Seguros INS: https://cotiza.ins-cr.com/frmDatosIncluir.aspx?P=431
Please be advised that the state insurance INS has extremely high prices and we, therefore, suggest buying the option of Sagicor or even better Trawick International.
Guests must apply to their international insurer for a certification issued in English or Spanish, stating at least these three conditions.
The Costa Rican Tourism Board is responsible for verifying compliance with the established requirements. The verification mechanism will be digital. While the platform is being set up, the Costa Rican Tourism Board will personally attend to the cases of tourists with international coverage at the airport to verify the documentation.
