Costa Rica tourism leaders worried over zica warning

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Leaders of Costa Rica’s travel industry expressed concern Tuesday about the country’s inclusion on the Zika warning list of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Costa Rican Tourism Board urged industry leaders and coastal towns to “take extreme preventive measures against the Zika virus, as we’re in high tourism season,” which runs from November through April.
