Allan Flores declared Costa Rica’s two-year tourism slump to be in the past. The new tourism minister looked ahead to a new era of tourism at the travel fair Expotur’s inauguration in downtown San José.

On Wednesday night, President Laura Chinchilla walked to an open podium and added her name to a bill authorizing the construction of a new $30 million convention center in Barreal de Heredia, northwest of San José. At the show, approximately 300 regional tourism businesses will try to charm visitors from 29 countries.
