UK visitors to Costa Rica increase by 2.5%

The latest statistics released from the Costa Rica Tourism Board have revealed that a total of 40,907 visitors from the UK travelled to Costa Rica in the first half of 2018 – representing an increase of 2.5% compared to the same period in 2017.

This steady growth is part of an upward trend in UK visitors seen by the destination over the last few years, which has been enhanced by the 2016 launch of direct BA flights from London.

The latest figures position the UK market as Costa Rica’s second largest source market in Europe. The Irish market has also seen a positive increase in the first half of this year. From January to June 2018, a total of 2,400 Irish travellers visited Costa Rica, representing a 17% increase compared to the same period last year.

In global numbers, the destination welcomed 1,661,145 worldwide visitors from January to June 2018, a 1.7% increase compared to the same period in last year.

Perched between Nicaragua and Panama, the country offers a plethora of wildlife, landscapes and experiences – from sloth encounters and turtle nesting to rainforests, cloud forests and sandy beaches.
