The latest figures from Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT) revealed that 76,173 visitors from the UK travelled to Costa Rica in 2017, a 6.7 percent increase compared to 2016.

Following the UK, Germany recorded 70,960 visitors, France 69,803 and Spain 69,782.

The UK was also the biggest source market to Costa Rica in 2016 (71,392), one year after British Airways launched direct flights between London Gatwick and San Jose.
