Costa Rica Airport Arrivals Exceed pre pandemic levels

Tank Tops Flip Flops Newsletter Edition no. 222

Arrivals into Costa Rica Airports have shown increasing strength post pandemic.  Starting in April of 2022, arrivals into the Guanacaste International Airport (LIR) have eclipsed pre pandemic records from 2019.  From January through April of 2023 arrivals into the Guanacaste Airport have been at all time record levels every month and the trends continue to be positive.  The first two months of 2023 have even eclipsed the then record levels achieved in 2020 before the pandemic hit.  Here is the graph of international tourist arrivals into Guanacaste International Airport from 2019-2023 (in Spanish).  

Arrivals into Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose (SJO) have also been very strong.  Although lagging behind the strong arrival numbers put up by the Guanacaste Airport, San Jose has seen Tourist arrivals finally eclipse pre pandemic record levels in April of 2023.  Below is the graph of arrivals into SJO.

RIP Dr. Richard “Dick” Simons

My father Dr. Richard “Dick” Simons passed away this week, April 24 2023, early in the morning. He had been in hospice care for the last 3 weeks, after falling and breaking his hip. He was an amazing man, with such incredible energy and a fabulous sense of humor. He touched so many people in his time on this earth and was the absolute best father a son could ever ask for. He taught me everything that was important in life. He will be missed tremendously. He lived a long, happy life, and was almost 90 years old. RIP Dad, say hi to Mom. Go to the light, I love you so much. Thank you for everything you have done for me.
