The Zika Virus: Should I Travel to Costa Rica Right Now?

The answer is YES, except if you are pregnant or may get pregnant during your visit.

Will I have to pay penalty if I book a trip and then cancel because I am pregnant?

No, there are no penalties associated, except for trips during Peak Season (December 15 thru January 04) and Easter Week, even for these dates, we will do our best to waive any penalty with the hotels.

Will cancelation insurance cover penalties if I become pregnant after booking and need to cancel?

It depends on the policy. Check the fine print carefully. Even policies that claim to cover cancelation, “for any reason,” sometimes exclude, “known risks,” of which Zika for pregnant women may be one.

Will I have to prove I am pregnant?

The answer is no. We trust you.
