Squaremouth’s Costa Rica Travel Insurance Recommendations

While Costa Rica is a generally a safe country to visit, Squaremouth recommends travelers visiting Costa Rica have a minimum of $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage for Covid-19. This meets Squaremouth’s recommended coverage amount for international travelers. The Emergency Medical benefit can reimburse the costs of treating an illness during a trip, such as the costs associated with Covid-19, including physician services, ambulance fees, and hospital fees, among others.

Medical Evacuation is a separate benefit from Emergency Medical. This benefit can reimburse travelers if an evacuation is required due to a medical emergency. Due to the potentially high cost of an evacuation, Squaremouth recommends $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage for travelers visiting Costa Rica.

For travelers who are concerned about losing their prepaid trip expenses, Squaremouth recommends travelers protect these costs with Trip Cancellation. This benefit can reimburse 100% of a traveler’s prepaid and non-refundable trip costs if they need to cancel for a covered reason, such as not being able to travel because they are sick with Covid-19 or another illness.

Costa Rica is currently listed as a level 2 destination by the U.S Department of State, meaning that travelers should exercise increased caution while traveling to ensure a safe trip. A comprehensive travel insurance policy when visiting Costa Rica can provide peace of mind and provide coverage if unforeseen events happen during the trip.
