As of the next high season in 2011, Germany will have a direct air link to Costa Rica’s most popular tourism area bringing with it revenues from European tourists.
The initial program will be modest, as Air Berlin launches a twice-monthly flight between Dusseldorf and Liberia, starting in November 2011. On the other hand, this is the first direct connection between Liberia and a European city making travel much more easy and convenient.
Condor currently connects Frankfurt and San José. Meanwhile, Liberia has the advantage of being in Guanacaste and less than an hour by road from many of Costa Rica’s most popular tourism destinations on the Pacific coast, ranging from tropical beaches to national parks in nearby mountains.
The strong euro means more Europeans are able to travel to destinations, such as Costa Rica. Although most of Europe continues to struggle with the financial crisis it is expected that by end of the year, tourism for Costa Rica will pick up significantly compared to previous years.
Many tourists from Europe as well as the Americas will be searching for Top Deals on All Inclusive Holidays. Packages are available at very affordable rates right now due to the current lull in tourism. Costa Rica expects to see a spike in tourists coming in for vacation starting in this year’s high season, which should boost the economy and also the prices on these vacation packages. It’s advisable to go ahead and book your vacation now to lock in the lower rates.
