Which countries can I travel to without vaccination?
Not all people who wish to travel to Costa Rica need a tourist visa. This will depend on your nationality, purpose of visit, country of residence and length of stay. Visa requirements or exceptions are based on international agreements or treaties. In addition, the visa does not guarantee entry to Costa Rica and as in the United States of America, it depends on the immigration officer upon arrival. Obtain information about visa requirements and application form here.
1. U.S. citizens do not require a Costa Rican entry visa, however, they must have a current valid passport and a ticket to leave Costa Rica within 90 days of entry (either to return to their home country or to go to another country). As a tourist, U.S. citizens cannot stay longer than 90 days. For a stay of more than 90 days a residency permit must be established.

The United States is open to receive all fully vaccinated visitors, although there are some specific rules depending on how they enter the country. (Details in the following intertitle).
The vaccine must have U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval or must have an emergency use listing from the World Health Organization (such as Astrazeneca). Mixed-dose vaccines will also be accepted. Find the full list of accepted vaccines here, as well as acceptable proof of vaccination.
However, if you are planning to visit the U.S. in more than 90 days, be aware that the CDC will re-evaluate their decision in that timeframe. And, if they decide that reinstatement is necessary, due to a new variant of concern for example, they will do so.
Hawaii and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean have some of the strictest rules for travel within the United States. Learn more about Hawaii here. Learn more about Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands here.
Traveling without vaccinations: These countries eliminated sanitary requirements
Through the works of Miguel León-Portilla, Edmundo O’Gorman and Federico Navarrete we can glimpse historiographic paradigms that differ from the Eurocentric, traditional and conventionalist views.
This led to the fact that in 1492 the Genoese navigator Christopher Columbus left Europe with three ships and a crew of about a hundred men in search of India. This voyage was made with the economic investment of Isabella of Castile, some members of the nobility, merchants and magnates.
Thus, on October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus arrived in what we know today as America when he found the Antilles and disembarked on the island of Guanahaní, which he named San Salvador (he later arrived in the current territories of Santo Domingo and Cuba).
In Visión de los vencidos (1959), Miguel León-Portilla includes an expression that offers a thought-provoking perspective on the way in which this moment in history is narrated and explained. It is the term “encounter of two worlds”.
