Discover Senderos From Anywhere: Book Your Virtual Tour!

Open Borders on the Horizon | October 2020 Travel Update

Things have continued to pick up around Costa Rica, and especially in Guanacaste, as travel has returned and restrictions continue to lift. 

Just a few weeks ago we smoothly welcomed visitors from the capital over the Día de la Anexión del Partido de Nicoya (also known as Guanacaste Day) federal holiday. It was great to see the beaches and streets lively and vibrant with visitors, and all around town you can sense things ramping up. 

With new US states allowed to travel to Costa Rica, beach hours expanded until after sunset throughout the week, and both local and international travelers starting to become more commonplace, things are starting to really feel exciting. With our local community, we’ve shown that we can ramp back up and make life just as fun and exciting while staying safe at the same time. 

In fact, we’re even seeing some new openings and reopenings, with Agua Salada rejuvenated under new management, and the opening of the brand new BOA brewery just down the road in Huacas. You can see our full writeup on these two new openings here.

New States to Travel from

To help keep this momentum, Costa Rica has implemented a gradual reopening to travel, which includes some general restrictions for entry as well as travel restrictions by region. You can see those in full on our travel guide from last month

  • Some US States (See below), The European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada, Uruguay, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, the People’s Republic of China, Australia, and New Zealand

US Travelers are allowed to visit based on their state of residence. As of October 1st residents of the following states can visit (new states since our last update are in bold):

Lots to Look Forward To In Senderos

As Guanacaste and Tama start to pick up steam again, we’ve also got a lot to look forward to in Senderos. With the country opening up for visitors again, sales tours and closings are happening again, just in time for high season. You can see the full update of tours and closings here

We’ve also got another virtual tour to share today! With its masterful tropical design by Benjamin Saxe both living space and views, the home at 3D is another brilliant addition to our neighborhood that you can explore here

We hope to see you soon so you can see it all coming together for yourself. If you’d like the most accurate update on current regulations, as well as advice on your upcoming trip, you can reach out to our team at
