Health Tips

You may have heard of Costa Rica’s excellent healthcare, but what does that mean for travelers? Will your health insurance work here? Do you need any vaccinations before you go to Costa Rica? Can you drink the water? We’ll also fill you in on pharmacies, public and private hospitals, and how travel insurance can help.


Costa Rica provides one of the best healthcare systems in Central America, both in the private and public sectors, and both constantly strive to be up-to-date. Over the last 60 years, its social security system–CCSS, also known as “la CAJA”–has established more than 250 clinics and 29 public hospitals in Costa Rica that cover all major populated areas throughout the country.
