Over 20 tourism companies will participate at the Costa Rica stand in the upcoming edition of FITUR, as confirmed by the Costa Rican Minister of Tourism, Gustavo Segura Sancho. Costa Rica clearly aims to position itself as the ideal destination to recharge energy, as well as a natural sanctuary to reconnect with what is truly essential in life, at the International Tourism Fair, which is holding its “Special Tourism Recovery” edition, from the 19 to 23 May, at Feria de Madrid.

Segura states that “participating in this fair contributes to Costa Rica remaining present in the minds of potential Spanish tourists, it strengthens our country’s position as an ideal destination to recharge in the midst of nature, in a wellness sanctuary, with sustainability as a core value. He announced that “so far over 20 tourism companies from Costa Rica have already registered to participate at FITUR 2021”.   

According to the Costa Rican Minister of Tourism, “participation at this fair is a negotiation showcase that will allow 20 tourism entrepreneurs from the private sector to show the best of our tourism offer and to strengthen connections with European partners and allies. Costa Rica’s promotion must continue stronger than before, even more so within FITUR, one of the most important tourism fairs in the world”. 

Segura said that the European outbound markets that are priority for Costa Rica are United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

The Costa Rican Minister explained that “we are a destination characterised by peace, nature, sustainability, solidarity, hospitality, wellbeing; commitment to the environment, a wide range of adventure options, as well as a good value/quality ratio. Our accommodation offer is sufficiently varied and is distributed throughout all the tourism regions of the country”.

He highlighted that Costa Rica has positioned itself as the best alternative for travelling in current times. “We are the “sustainable tourism sanctuary” par excellence, year-round, with no PCR test requirements and with numerous air connections with Europe. We offer multiple choices in natural and open spaces: from wellness, adventure, wildlife viewing, nature and rural tourism, culture, honeymoon, sun and sand, family, reunions or cruises”. And he added that “we will publicise areas with a high potential for developing hotels, tourism products and segments with a joint integration of marketing strategies, public relations and in cooperation with the professional tourism sector”.
