It goes without saying that 2020 has been a challenging year for frequent travelers, but things are soon to change! If you’re searching for the best international beach vacation in 2021, it can’t get more perfect than Costa Rica. Ahead are our top three reasons why Costa Rica vacations are the best international option you can choose for 2021. Costa Rica’s Travel Restrictions are Safe and Streamlined Costa Rica’s efforts to keep its population safe mean that 2021 is a great year for a Costa Rican vacation. Costa Rica began opening its borders to international tourism on September 1st, 2020. They’ve gone to great lengths to ensure safety for both incoming tourists and Costa Rican citizens, which involves: Providing appropriate airport health screening upon arrival Requiring a “Pase de Salud,” a digital health pass, for entry Requiring proof of travel health insurance that covers your accommodation For more detailed information about Costa Rica’s entry requirements in regards to COVID-19, read Casa Teresa’s guide. Note that since the writing of the guide, a negative COVID-19 test obtained within 72 hours of arrival is no longer required. As of the writing of this article, the U.S. Embassy to Costa Rica states that U.S. citizens from all 50 states and Washington D.C. are permitted to enter Costa Rica via flights departing from the United States. Be sure to refer to the U.S. International Travel Advisory page for any updates With strict regulations in place and a vaccination arriving soon, Costa Rica is the best international beach vacation you can reliably plan for 2021. Costa Rica Relies On Tourism As a small nation with a large land percentage made up of nature preserves, Costa Rica’s biggest draw is tourism. Costa Rica vacation tourism makes up an incredible amount of the nation’s GDP — approximately 8%! This means that the tourism industry is eager for your business, especially if you’re from the United States. Social distancing requirements just mean you’ll have more space to yourself in paradise! Additionally, you may find that tours, accommodations, and public places are more open and accessible. While this may be the case at the present, we don’t expect it to be long before the towns and cities are back to bustling with people. So book your Costa Rica vacation with time to spare! Costa Rica’s reliance on tourism means that everywhere you go, people will be happy to have your business. You might find that people are willing to go the extra mile to ensure you have an excellent stay in their country and will return soon. No Better Time for Private Accommodation If you want to maintain your social distance while traveling, this is the perfect time to book a private accommodation. There’s no better excuse to book the best international beach vacation location than “safety first”! Beyond social distancing, a private Costa Rica vacation accommodation is idyllic for many reasons. You’ll be able to lounge around the beach, enjoying the serene sound of nothing but the sound of the ocean waves. You and your fellow vacationers, whether they be friends, family, coworkers, or romantic partners, will enjoy uncompromised privacy and uninterrupted time with each other. And what’s more valuable than spending time with your loved ones? With private accommodation, there’s no waiting in line, no rushing, and no sharing with strangers. You get a larger area to roam around and a villa that comes fully equipped with all the facilities and amenities you can imagine. For the duration of your Costa Rican vacation, everything at the villa is yours, and you can relax just much as you would at home.
