Will Costa Rica open to Americans?


With the USA struggling and failing to control the pandemic, with 140,000 deaths, Costa Rica has a dilemma of either banning the majority of tourists or seriously increasing infection rates.

Most dental tourism clinics in Costa Rica rely heavily on American patients, who represent more than 90% of the dental tourism market in Costa Rica.

Many clinics have reduced prices to increase local trade.
