Costa Rica tourism cruised past another milestone in 2015, attracting a record-breaking 2.66 million tourists from around the world. The Arenal/La Fortuna region is the most visited. Continued growth from the U.S., Costa Rica’s most important tourism market, and the expansion of new airlines (with new direct flights from London, Paris, Zurich, New York among others) were among the top reasons for the continued growth. The increasing number of tourists also helped the tourism sector swell by 9 percent in 2015, outpacing the national GDP of 2.8 percent by threefold. Tourism Minister called the tourism sector a “motor for development” in Costa Rica, providing jobs and growing the country’s international brand.
