Toucan - Costa Rica

Are you ready to start traveling again? You are not alone. Everyone seems to be. We wanted to share 5 Popular All-Inclusive Resorts in Costa Rica to consider for your next, luxury travel destination.

2020 has been a crazy year, but help is on the way. Luckily, COVID-19 vaccinations are underway in the U.S., U.K. and Canada. As a result, vaccination rates will increase dramatically in the coming months. Operation Warp Speed is the U.S. government’s expedited search for development and delivery of a vaccine. The department’s Chief Science Advisor states that every American who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by June of 2021.

The vaccine rollout marks the turning point in the battle against COVID-19. Hence, the global travel industry is finally on a path to reopen once again. That reopening will take months to play out and will likely occur on a country-by-country basis.

Some tropical destinations that temporarily banned international visitors have already reopened. These countries are currently welcoming tourists. Mexico has a large number of top-selling all-inclusive destinations. They are now open.  In addition, tropical Costa Rica joins that coveted list.

We have highlighted five popular all-inclusive resorts in Costa Rica that are open now. This incredible, Central American country is a haven for travelers who love nature and outdoor adventure. Interestingly, roughly a quarter of its territory is preserved as national parks or conservation areas. For example, see hummingbirds hover at hibiscus flowers and  howler monkeys bellow from the treetops. Plus, iguanas may lounge in the sun, not too far from your poolside chair.
