Hike These Great Trails in Costa Rica As Tourism Returns

If you have been meaning to go hiking the lush Costa Rican trails off your to-do list, then get your boots ready!

Rich in national parks, wildlife preserves, and rainforests,  Costa Rica is home to many unique hike trails that wind up beautiful views.

Although air and marine entrance into Costa Rica is now possible from any country, international private or commercial arrivals by air can only be done via the Juan Santamaría or Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport.

Likewise, entry via marines can be done either by sailboats or yachts only at Pez Vela,  Los Sueños, Banana Bar, marinas of Golfito, and Papagayo. In addition, tourists must comply with all requirements put in place during the pandemic.

According to the Costa Rican Government, only tourists who arrive by sea and have made a stopover at another seaport within 14 days of travel will be required to undergo a mandatory quarantine. So take a guided hike and absorb the beautiful outdoor of the country!
