    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Expotur fair, to be held in San José from May 14 to 16, will have an objective to make Cost Rica a tourist destination for adventure entrepreneurs from 37 countries.

    Through a press release, the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) indicated that about 250 representatives of hotels, tour operators, airlines, event organizers, medical tourism companies and chambers for Costa Rican tourism will be there to negotiate with wholesalers from all over the world.

    “Expotur allows local entrepreneurs to position their products to a large number of wholesalers who are attracted to our natural potential,” said the Costa Rican Tourism Minister, Allan Flores, in the statement.

    He added that “in this effort we have positioned and strengthened the destination, as it bounds with niches like adventure travel, which is sought after internationally.”

    It’s estimated that each year as a result of negotiations during the fair, 70,000 to 100,000 tourists more tourists will enter Costa Rica.

    “This conference is a platform to market various lines of tourism products and services we have in the country. This year we will emphasize in adventure tourism, which allows the development of ecotourism and rural tourism,” said the CEO of the Costa Rican Association of Tourism Professionals (ACOPROT), Jose Llaguno.

    Tourism is one of the main drivers of the economy of Costa Rica, a country of 4.7 million people in 2013 received 2.34 million foreign tourists generating foreign exchange for around $2.3 billion.

    Tourism directly employs about 150,000 people and another 400,000 indirectly in this Central American country is home to about 4.5% of the planet’s biodiversity, which constitutes one of its main attractions. ACAN-EFE
