But, what makes of Costa Rica such an attractive destination for tourists from all around the world? The answer is very simple: we have amazing beaches, volcanoes, national parks and rainforests. And all at a very close distance or a few hours away!
If to its incredible tourist destinations we add the fact that Costa Rica is distinguished by the kindness of its people and its sense of peace, then we have a unique nation worldwide.
“In no other country the tourist will have the same feelings that when he/she comes to Costa Rica. Here they will be treated with respect, education, kindness and warmth. Those elements, combined with the natural beauty of the country, basically makes a big difference”, said Arturo Blanco, senior partner at Jurex Law.
Besides those tourists that come to Costa Rica to enjoy an exotic vacation, there are other kind that comes for very different reasons, for example, to take advantage of our excellent medical services. The ‘medical tourism’ has grown a lot during this last decade, since health services offered by dentists and plastic surgeons, among others, are of the best quality in our country, and much more accessible in terms of cost, compared to those provided in other nations.
“We must take into account that many of the tourists who come to be medically treated, arrive from the United States. They also travel to Costa Rica because of the affordable prices on plane tickets and accommodations”, added Blanco.
