Costa Rica Loosening Restrictions

Beginning April 1, Costa Rica will no longer require travellers to complete an online Health Pass when visiting the destination.

Additionally, unvaccinated travellers will no longer be required to purchase a travel insurance policy.

However, it will still be recommended that travellers purchase travel insurance to cover medical and lodging expenses in the event of contracting COVID-19.

As of March 1, all business establishments require vaccination QR codes upon entry and commercial establishments that do not require vaccination QR codes can only operate at 50% capacity.

That said, beginning April 1, establishments including but not limited to sports, cultural and academic institutions, and nightclubs, will be able to operate at 100% capacity without requiring vaccination QR codes.
