September 4, 2020

Costa Rica’s tourism industry is beginning its long journey toward normality. Starting this month, tourists from select U.S. states — plus more than 40 countries — are allowed to visit the Central American country.

As Costa Rica again welcomes visitors, here are a couple of things you should know today:

‘Made in Costa Rica’ campaign

The Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT) launched an online marketing campaign promoting local artisans to viewers in the United States and Canada.

Titled #MadeInCostaRica (#HechoEnCostaRica), the short videos “highlight a fragment of our many natural, gastronomic, cultural and artistic beauties,” said Rafael Quesada, Head of Advertising at ICT. 

The clips are being published and promoted on YouTube coinciding with the recent rules permitting visitors from the U.S. and Canada.
