🇨🇷 Costa Rica 🇳🇮 Land Borders Open? 🇵🇦 Feb 2 UPDATE O Canada 🇨🇦 Who's Your Daddy?

#CostaRica #Panama #Nicaragua ‘🇨🇷 Costa Rica 🇳🇮 Land Borders Open? 🇵🇦 Feb 2 UPDATE O Canada 🇨🇦 Who’s Your Daddy?’ President Carlos Alvarado and Health Minister Daniel Salas issued an extension to the travel restrictions by land. The land borders were set to open this yesterday Monday February 1st but now the border closures with Nicaragua and Panama will extend to March 1st. This isn’t entirely bad news. Although many people were hopeful and making plans on doing a border run to renew their visas (passports) before March 2nd and thus extend their stay in Costa Rica unfortunately for now, people who desire to “renew” their tourist visa (passport stamp) must do so by air, either traveling to Panama, Nicaragua or elsewhere where it isn’t to painful to enter and depart. Right now, the land borders between Panama and Nicaragua are really only important for 2 groups of folks. Perpetual tourists who actually live in Costa Rica but are not residents and folks from other parts of the world who care considering, moving, relocating, living ourseas, living abroad, possibly retiring and making (livinging) a life in Costa Rica. The latter are obviously looking for a cheaper way (like the perpetual tourists) to renew their visas without getting on a plane.

O Canada what the heck is going on with you? Canadian airlines have agreed to suspend flights to “Mexico and Caribbean countries” until April 30. Costa Rica is among the countries included by this definition. In addition, Canada will soon enforce stringent testing and isolation requirements for all returning travelers. WOW Canada, just WOW! You all got a lot to work out.

Thank You Trudeau
