Does Costa Rica allow felons from the US to visit?

Question by beemerbuff: Does Costa Rica allow felons from the US to visit?
I would like to visit Costa Rica, and bring a friend who has a felony conviction from 24 years ago. Will Costa Rica allow him to visit?

Best answer:

Answer by dougger
Yes, if his current record is clean. For most violations a five year period without getting into trouble is enough. But the record keeping leaves a lot to be desired. Make sure you friend has an updated record and his name is not on the wrong lists.

If his conviction is 24 years old he may ask that the record be cleared. He may have a chance of having it lifted, depending on the severity of the crime, and where.

Go Visit Costa Rica Helps Plan Costa Rica Vacations

(PRWEB) March 21, 2005

San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) March 21, 2005 Â? Costa Rica is a tropical oasis with diverse rainforests, tropical beaches, and active volcanoes. It is no wonder that millions of tourists flock to Costa Rica every year. With extensive understanding of Costa Rican culture, geography, climate and amenities, offers tips to plan the ideal vacation.

Situated on the pacific coast in the northern province of Guanacaste, Tamarindo has become one of the most popular Costa Rica Vacation destinations. The province of Guanacaste is the hottest and driest region in Costa Rica. Even though there is still a rainy season in Guanacaste, it is much shorter than the other areas of Costa Rica. The warm climate and long stretches of beaches in Guanacaste combine to offer a picture perfect paradise known for its beautiful and relaxing beaches. Tamarindo lies in the center of this beach bliss.

Just north of Tamarindo is Playa Grande, also a popular destination, but for a very different reason. The beach is long and beautiful just like TamarindoÂ?s beach, but there is much more to this beach than meets the eye. At night during the months of October to February, the Leatherback Marine Turtles come up to nest their eggs in the sand. If you are here during the season, you can witness first-hand these huge marine turtles lay their eggs. It is truly a sight to be seen. You can also witness the baby Leatherback turtles hatch from December to April on Playa Grande. Make sure that you are on a tour with a certified guide as these turtles are protected and you will not be allowed on the beach without a guide. Whether you are into nature or just relaxing, Tamarindo and neighboring Playa Grande are the beaches for you.

Taking a Costa Rica vacation and not visiting one of Costa RicaÂ?s many national parks is like going to an amusement park and not riding a roller coaster. Over 26% of Costa RicaÂ?s land is dedicated to National Parks and Reserves, and Costa RicaÂ?s biodiversity is at the top among all the countries in the world. Manuel Antonio National Park is no exception to the beauty; it is located on the central Pacific Coast in the region known as Puntarenas. Even though Manuel Antonio National Park is one of the smallest parks in Costa Rica, it is truly one of the most beautiful and you are guaranteed to be awed by its beautiful beaches. Not to mention that nobody leaves this park without witnessing at least one troop of monkeys among the trees.

No Costa Rica vacation would be complete without a visit to Costa RicaÂ?s third most popular attraction, Arenal Volcano (Volcan Arenal). Arenal Volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. It is a perfect conical shaped volcano with a prehistoric feel to it. Here you can sit on your hotel room balcony and watch the red lava flow down the side of the volcano like cavemen did thousands of years ago. Arenal Volcano erupts many times a day consistently, making it not dangerous but spectacular to witness.

Another wonder of Costa Rica are its cloud forests where much of the biodiversity of Costa Rica lives. Monteverde, a small Quaker-founded town, has increased in popularity because of the peacefulness and immense beauty of its cloud forests. Monteverde is perched in the mountains of Costa Rica on the continental divide where you can see both the Pacific coast and the Caribbean coast.

Costa Rica is a small yet diverse country. Because of this, it is a perfect vacation destination. On a typical two week Costa Rica vacation you can visit the pristine beaches of Tamarindo and Playa Grande, view the beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park, and see the spectacular Arenal Volcano and its flowing red lava. Where will you go on your next Costa Rica Vacation?

What is the best time of year to visit Costa Rica?

Question by traveler: What is the best time of year to visit Costa Rica?
My sister and I would like to visit Costa Rica sometime in 2008. Does anybody know what the best month is to visit in terms of avoiding a lot of rain? I know it’s tropical and varied, but I heard some parts of the year are best avoided. What are those times to avoid? Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by Sar
I went to the Caribbean coast in March of 2005. All of the weather reports told us it was raining, raining, raining. When we were finally able to speak to the person at our hotel, he told us they’d been in a drought for months. The whole time we were there (7 days) it rained once at night. It is hard to get good weather info on line, your best bet is to communicate with those who are actually there.

San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) May 24, 2005 announces a summer itinerary of Costa Rican adventures and activities.

Have you ever wanted to zip through the rainforest canopy like Sean Connery in the “Medicine Man?” If so, then Costa Rica and its famous Canopy Tours can offer you your dream vacation. The activities in the small yet beautifully diverse country of Costa Rica don’t stop there the country offers hundreds of different types of activities to do on your Costa Rica vacation. They range from Canopy Tours and hiking the rainforest to surfing and white water rafting. For the golf lover Costa Rica is host to a variety of courses throughout the country.

Canopy Tours have recently become one of the most popular activities in Costa Rica. On the tour, you are hoisted up to a platform in a tree about 50 feet up, securely tied to a zip line and then sent flying to another platform in a tree via a zip line. The small Quaker community of Monteverde is where the first Canopy Tours began, and have since spread out all over the country. This is truly an adrenaline filled experience that should not be missed.

July is a great month to experience some of the more traditionally popular activities like surfing and white water rafting. Surfing peaks on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica; this is when swells from the South Pacific produce some of the biggest and best waves of the year. These waves come into beaches like Pavones and Matapalo as well as beaches in the north like Tamarindo and Playa Grande just to mention a few.

White Water Rafting is also great at this time of the year. The rivers are overflowing from the previous months of rain and, in July the weather clears up from the rainy season and forms what is known as the “Veranito” or the little summer in Costa Rica.

Sportfishing is another popular activity in Costa Rica. The months of June and July on the Pacific and the Caribbean Coast are the best times to experience this deep ocean activity. There are many types of fish catch ranging from Dorado, Wahoo, Roosterfish and Tarpon.
