Costa Rica’s Current Entry Requirements and Gaia’s Plus

– For starters, 100% of our staff has been vaccinated against COVID-19

Great news!!! Costa Rica will stop requiring a health insurance policy for minors and for adults who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Gaia will give each guest a US $60 massage credit per person when you reserve more than 2 nights directly with us; The massage is not transferable and is applicable only in our Terra Spa during your stay. This perk will appear on the reservation page if your booking qualifies for this great spa credit.

The measure takes effect starting August 1, 2021. As of that date, minors (under 18) and those who are fully vaccinated can enter Costa Rica as tourists without purchasing a travel health insurance policy.

However, as of August 1, minors and vaccinated adults no longer need insurance. In order to qualify, adults must:

  • Have received an approved vaccine: Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, or Johnson & Johnson.
  • The last dose of the schedule must have been administered at least 14 days before entering Costa Rica.
  • Proof must be demonstrated with a document that includes the person’s full name, date of each dose, formula, and lot number.   For U.S. visitors, the Covid-19 vaccination record card meets the requirement.

Everyone entering Costa Rica is required to complete the Health Pass, an epidemiological form from the Costa Rica Health Department. This must be filled out during the 72-hour period prior to your arrival.

Unvaccinated tourists can also opt for any of the following Costa Rican insurance companies, which sell products that are registered and authorized by the Office of the Superintendent General of Insurance of Costa Rica: INSSagicor and BlueCross BlueShield.

Hope to see you soon and we will be more than glad to answer any further questions you might have via e-mail at reservations@gaiahr.com, via phone +1-800-226-2515 or WhatsApp at +506 8411-2616

Why Gaia Hotel & Reserve during and after Covid-19?

As Costa Rica’s borders open, we look forward to welcoming you to Gaia Hotel & Reserve.

Why consider our hotel and nature reserve for your next holiday? Gaia was naturally designed for privacy and by definition, social distancing. Our TripAdvisor cleanliness rating is 5 out of 5 points.

We are a small boutique 5-star luxury hotel on 15 acres of pristine jungle. The design and layout of our hotel is conducive to natural separation of guests. Privacy has always been one of our ultimate goals.  So much so, that we have no long hallways papered with rooms and rooms; to reach your room the most you will pass will be two room and only one room in more than eighty percent of the cases.

Our restaurant has a capacity of 75 guests of which we will only accommodate 25-30 guests for the proper social distancing. Tables are separated in a huge open floor plan. Our rooms, of which we only have 22, are spread out over 3 buildings with 2 pools to accommodate guests and 3 additional wading pools with 5 resting/tanning areas around the pools.  Our spa facilities have 8 treatment rooms which are segregated and private.

You can be assured of coming to a country which has had minimal reported hospitalizations with no cases at all in our neck of the woods. A country where medical tourism is at the forefront of why people come to Costa Rica in the first place.

Gaia Hotel and Reserve has always been a private intimate resort and is and has always been ready to accommodate our guests to experience your own personal Paradise. Additional measures
