Great news! Costa Rica is ending all Covid-related restrictions on April 1, 2022.
So what exactly does this mean for international travelers?
You don’t need to be vaccinated to visit Costa Rica.
International travelers arriving to Costa Rica will no longer be required to fill out Costa Rica’s Health Pass.
Starting on April 1, 2022, there are no special forms you will need to fill out before arriving to Costa Rica. Just bring your passport and you’re all set.
Unvaccinated travelers are no longer required to purchase travel insurance to visit Costa Rica.
Beginning on April 1, 2022, unvaccinated visitors are no longer required to purchase travel insurance to visit Costa Rica. It’s still a great idea to purchase travel insurance before your trip, or to at least make sure your existing health insurance will cover you in case of emergency while on your vacation.
Restrictions within Costa Rica are also being eliminated. Starting on March 7, 2022, all driving restrictions and the nightly 12am-5am curfew were eliminated. Starting on April 1, 2022, all businesses will once again be able to operate at 100% occupancy.
Please make sure to check with your country of origin about any requirements for returning home. For example, if you’re flying to Costa Rica from the United States, you will need to get a COVID-19 viral test (regardless of vaccination status or citizenship) no more than 1 day before you travel by air into the United States. These tests are available at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.
