Violence Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

Hi all

Costa Rica was touted as the coolest spot for families for a while; with wildlife, beaches and weather being the big draws. It was relatively safe - little crime and decent healthcare (although dengue outbreaks are increasing). However, this past year has seen many governments change their advisories for Costa Rica - from safe to 'high degree of caution" based on violence towards tourists.

My question is twofold: are people noticing these things "on the ground" so to speak? I would think for governments to change their advisories it would have to be more than an isolated incident. Is it mainly in one or two regions (or cities)? Is CR still a safe place for people with young children to travel?

Thoughts?
KD
