After several months of pause, the cruise ships could return to Costa Rican ports in a matter of weeks, according to the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT). “I have all the faith that for November before the high season begins, we will once again see cruise ships arriving on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of our country”, Minister Gustavo Segura announced to the Legislative Tourism Commission.

Segura added that he is already talking with the Florida International Cruise Association, the most influential group on the matter. Also, together with other Central American countries, and parameters are being negotiated to standardize security protocols.
