SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA - Feb. 8, 2016 - The Zika virus should not hinder local and international travelers decision to visit the many Costa Rican tourist attractions.

In an official statement issued on Feb. 1 by the World Health Organization (WHO), supported by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), it was stated that no travel restrictions should be imposed on areas affected by the Zika virus. Moreover, there is no scientific evidence of the presence of the virus in Costa Rica.

However, now is the perfect opportunity to prepare for the green season and take all the necessary precautions, such as eliminating possible mosquito breeding sites," said Dr. Daniel Salas Peraza, health surveillance director of the Ministry of Health.EndFragment
