Citizens of the US, Canada, EU countries, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Norway and Switzerland are among the countries whose citizens do NOT require visas to enter Costa Rica as tourists.
Vaccinations: We recommend you speak with your personal doctor before traveling, but vaccinations are NOT a requirement. Check the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
