COVID-19
INFORMATION

Important information about entering Costa Rica and your stay in the country

 

Entry requirements:

1. To enter Costa Rica, an online Health Pass must be completed before departure.

2. Comply with one of the following options

OPTION 1 - COMPLETE VACCINATION SCHEME

Have the complete scheme of vaccines authorized by the Government of Costa Rica, whose date of the last dose may not be less than 14 days prior to your trip to Costa Rica.

The list of authorized vaccines are:

  • AstraZeneca
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Moderna
  • Pfizer & BioNTech

This will be demonstrated by the corresponding vaccination certificate, added to the Health Pass.

The combination of vaccine brands are allowed, as long as they (if two doses are required) are within the authorized brands.

Children under 18 years of age, vaccinated or not, do not need special insurance to enter.

Of course, we still recommend taking out travel insurance to cover you financially in case of illness or accident.

OPTION 2 - INSURANCE POLICY FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES ASSOCIATED WITH COVID-19

All those who do not have the complete vaccination schedule, must have a mandatory travel insurance that covers accommodation in case of quarantine and medical expenses in case of Covid-19 disease.  

Proof of travel medical insurance with a minimum coverage of USD 50,000 for medical expenses in case of Covid-19 disease, as well as USD 2,000 coverage for any quarantine costs, must be attached to the Health Pass.

  • For our Swiss guests, there are already insurance possibilities with Helsana, Swika, Helvetia, and CSS, which cover local quarantine conditions.
  • The Lufthansa Group offers European customers who arrive with Lufthansa, Edelweiss or Swiss an insurance package with coverage of quarantine costs through AXA (if return journey not later than March 14, 2022).
  • If the international travel health insurance does not cover the USD 2.000 for any quarantine costs, please contact us and we will find a solution for you.
  • At the end of the health form, a QR code is generated which the customer can save on his mobile phone or print out. This QR code must be presented upon entry.
  • The health form must be presented upon check-in. Otherwise, some airlines refuse to board.
  • Anyone who has symptoms of Covid-19 before departure should not travel.

3. A negative PCR test is NOT REQUIRED.

4. All nationalities can enter through the international airports of San Jose and Liberia.

Entering Costa Rica by land

Since April 5, 2021 the land borders with Nicaragua and Panama are open, the requirements for entry through the land borders are identical to the requirements for entry through the airports so it is necessary to fill out the Health Pass online and prove insurance in case you do not comply with your full vaccination schedule.

The following are the requirements for entry into our neighboring countries:

  • Entry Panama:
    • Online form: https://www.panamadigital.gob.pa/
    • Entry requirements for travelers who have been in Costa Rica during the last 15 days:

      Non-vaccinated travelers

      They are required to present to present a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken no more than 72 hours prior to their arrival time in Panama. If the test if not possible  within that time frame, a COVID 19 rapid test will be required at the airport before entering customs. The traveller will have to cover the cost of this test ($50.00).

      In case of a positive result, the traveler will be placed under a mandatory 14-day quarantine in a Hotel Hospital designated by the Ministry of Health. The cost of the stay must be fully covered by the traveler.

      For unvaccinated travelers or travelers without a complete vaccination scheme, if the results are negative, the traveler will be placed under a mandatory 72-hour quarantine at certain authorized hotels (see more information here), and at the end of this period, another PCR or antigen test must be taken.

      Vaccinated Travelers:

      All vaccinated travelers will be exempt from presenting a negative COVID 19 test to enter Panama and from doing the mandatory 72-hour quarantine as long as they can provide physical or digital proof of their full vaccination scheme endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), equal to or greater than 14 days after the last dose.

  • Entry Nicaragua:
    • Negative PCR test not older than 72 hours (antigen rapid tests are not accepted)
    • Indication of the residence address in Nicaragua upon entry

COVID test in Costa Rica prior to return 

Some countries currently require a negative COVID-19 test to enter your country of origin from Costa Rica.  We recommend that you first obtain detailed information about the entry requirements of the country of entry, in order to ensure that you arrive to your destination without any mishap. Remember, the test must be taken no more than 72 hours before leaving the country. To request an appointment for both types of tests, please contact your Customer Experience Team or write a message via Whatsapp to 8893-3863 and we will gladly arrange the appointment for your clients.

Safety while traveling

Thanks to the country's robust health system and progress in the vaccination process, the COVID-19 situation in Costa Rica is under control and the process of vaccinating the population continues to be successful.

Costa Rica is a good destination for travel during the pandemic if known hygiene protocols are followed. These protocols are strictly applied in all tourist sites in the country and results show that they are working properly.

  • Mask requirements at airports and during the entire flight.
  • Mask requirement in Costa Rica in shops, bus stops, during bus rides, when entering/leaving restaurants, and all contacts where the minimum distance of 1.8 m cannot be kept. The use of face masks is mandatory for all persons including children from 3 years of age.
  • NO mask requirement in national parks, reserves, beaches, and public spaces if the minimum distance of 1.8m can be kept.
  • Keeping the minimum distance of 1.8 m to people from other social bubbles.
  • Regular disinfection of rooms, vehicles, luggage, tables, and all surfaces that are often touched by the service providers' staff.
  • Facilities for hand washing or disinfection everywhere.
  • Largely contactless service (check-in, menus as QR code, etc.)
  • Excellent public and private health care. ARA Tours works with an English-speaking doctor for our customers, e.g. for remote diagnosis.
  • High hygiene standards and drinking water across the country.

Why you should visit Costa Rica?

  • You mainly move outside in nature, there are hardly any crowds.
  • 94% of the hotels in Costa Rica have less than 40 rooms and there are hardly any crowds either.
  • Numerous great boutique hotels with top standards and availability!
  • Rental car tours, a safe form of travel
  • Traveling with a private driver/tour guide: on request and for a fee, we are happy to carry out a Covid test 72 hours before the start of the journey.
  • Costa Rica looks like it did 30 years ago: You see a lot more animals, the national parks are poorly visited, the beaches are often deserted.
  • English-speaking top tour guides are available. This has often not been the case in the past.

Testimonials

  • LG Daniel, Jana und Theo

    • "Ein großes Dankeschön, Ihr habt unseren Urlaub gerettet!
      Wo fange ich/ wir an? Bereits in Deutschland hat die Kommunikation sehr gut funktioniert. Die Hilfe von Euch insbesondere durch Aline ist hier zu erwähnen. Diese war von der ersten WhatsApp Nachricht bis zur letzten fantastisch. Wir kennen Costa Rica bereits, daher wussten wir was wir wollen und was nicht. Trotzdem war AraTours für uns ein wichtiger Ansprechpartner. Gerade weil unser eigentlicher Reiseanbieter 36 Stunden vor Abflug unsere Reise gecancelt hatte, sind wir Aline sehr dankbar. Sie hat sofort alles für uns organisiert. Ob Hotel im schönen Punta Leona, ob die Touren in die Nationalparks, selbst der Shuttleservice mit dem großartigen Fahrer Guillerno Ortega muss hier erwähnt werden. Wir sind Dir, liebe Aline, aber auch dem gesamten AraTours Team sehr dankbar. Auch Ihr habt unsere knapp 3-wöchige Reise nach Costa Rica wieder unvergesslich werden lassen. Wir kommen gerne wieder und werden dann natürlich wieder über AraTours buchen."
    • "A big thank to you, you saved our vacation!
      Communication already worked very well in Germany. The help from you, especially through Aline, should be mentioned here. This was fantastic from the first WhatsApp message to the last. We already know Costa Rica, so we knew what we wanted and what not. Ara Tours was an important point of contact for us. We are very grateful to Aline precisely because our actual travel agent cancelled our trip 36 hours before departure. She immediately organized everything for us. Whether the hotel in beautiful Punta Leona, the tours to the national parks, even the shuttle service with the great driver Guillerno Ortega has to be mentioned here. We are very grateful to you, dear Aline, but also to the entire Ara Tours team. You too made our almost 3-week trip to Costa Rica unforgettable again. We would love to come back and of course we will book through Ara Tours again."
    • "Un gran agradecimiento, ¡nos han salvado las vacaciones!
      ¿Por dónde empiezo/empezamos? Ya desde Alemania la comunicación funcionó muy bien. Debo mencionar la gran ayuda de ustedes, especialmente a través de Aline. Esto fue fantástico desde el primer mensaje de WhatsApp hasta el último. Ya conocíamos Costa Rica, así que sabíamos lo que queríamos y lo que no. Sin embargo, ARA Tours fue un contacto importante para nosotros. Especialmente porque nuestro actual proveedor de viajes había cancelado nuestro viaje 36 horas antes de la salida, por eso estamos muy agradecidos con Aline porque inmediatamente organizó todo para nosotros. Desde el hotel en la hermosa Punta Leona, en las excursiones en los parques nacionales, incluso el servicio de transporte con el gran conductor Guillerno Ortega debe ser mencionado también. Te estamos muy agradecidos, querida Aline, pero también a todo el equipo de ARA Tours. También han hecho que nuestro viaje de 3 semanas a Costa Rica fuera inolvidable. Estaremos encantados de volver y, por supuesto, reservaremos de nuevo a través de ARA Tours."

    • "Gracias, todo ha salido muy bien. ¡Super organización y en todo momento tuvimos su ayuda y apoyo de usted, la información siempre fue rápida!
      Nos ha gustado mucho. La conclusión en Quepos fue la "cereza en el pastel". Nos gustó mucho la playa del Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio. Nos hubiera gustado quedarnos más tiempo, pero nos llevamos a casa muchas impresiones hermosas e inolvidables. ¡PURA VIDA!
      ¡Muchas gracias a ti Aline! Los recomendaremos con gusto a otros".

    • Guten Tag, wir waren ab dem 27.11. auf einer Rundreise in Costa Rica, welche über BigXtra gebucht und von ihnen organisiert wurde. Wir möchten uns auf diesem Wege sehr herzlich bedanken. Die Rundfahrt war einfach der Hammer !! Die Betreuung durch Carlos war eifach nur Spitze. Wir haben schon viele Reisen gemacht, aber diese ist Dank Carlos zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis geworden. Carlos spicht sehr gut deutsch und konnte und sehr einfühlsam Costa Rica, die unvergleichliche Natur und die tollen, freundlichen Einwohner nahe bringen. Pura Vida wurde für uns ein Begriff für das Lebensgefühl in Costa Rica. Bitte grüßen sie Carlos von uns und nochmals eine riesiges Dankeschön an ihn im Namen der ganzen 8-köpfigen Gruppe. Wir wünschen ihm nur das Beste für seine Zukunft.

Carlos speaks very good German and was able to sensitively introduce us to Costa Rica, its incomparable nature and its great, friendly inhabitants.

We wish him only the best for his future.
