Sounds good! What else do I need to know while planning a trip to Costa Rica?
First, check the current validity of your passport.
We strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times. Citizens of Canada can refer to www.canada.ca for forms and instructions for Canadian passport renewals.
Second, make sure your passport has blank Visa pages.
Most destinations, including Costa Rica, require that you have adequate unused pages in your passport, allowing for any necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visas section of your passport before any international travel. Canadian citizens cannot add extra passport pages to their passports. Please refer to www.canada.ca for forms and instructions for Canadian passport renewals.
Finally, confirm if transit visa is required for any connections.
Check with your airline in case you have connecting flights overseas as part of your journey to Costa Rica. It may be the case that countries you pass through en route to your destination may require a separate transit visa. Please refer to visa requirements of the specific country.
Costa Rica visa for citizens of Canada is required. For more information please contact the nearest Costa Rica embassy.
