Country Profile

Costa Rica is on the land bridge between North and South America. The Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea add stunning coastlines to a country already rich in natural resources.

Rugged mountain ranges separate the coastal plains to east and west. These include over a hundred volcanic cones of which several are still active. The territory also includes several islands. A quarter of the landmass forms part of a natural conservation system. Although Costa Rica lies within the tropics, it has varying microclimates according to elevation and topography. The summer dry season lasts from December through to April, followed by a moist period for the rest of the year. 

Costa Rica Dental Industry

The University of Costa Rica (San Pedro), the College of Dental Services (San José), and the Universidad Latina de Costa Rica (San Pedro and Heredia) provide dental training that is equivalent to American standards. The College of Dental Surgeons of Costa Rica has responsibility for regulating their activities.

Thus Costa Rica offers superb opportunities for western dental patients requiring a top-class implant, veneer, crown and bridge treatments in a country where their currency goes further. Dental Travel Services is the premier dental tourism agency. We are poised to facilitate the process for you so that everything goes according to your plans.

Getting There

There are two international airports, namely Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in Alajuela, and Daniel Oduber Quirós  International Airport (LIR) in Liberia. These connect to every major center via a network of more than a hundred regional and local aerodromes. There are also Pacific seaports at Puntarena, Quepos, and Golfito that connect to ferries and car rental firms.

Visitor Highlights

Costa Rica is the most-visited Central American nation and receives over two million tourists annually. Some come for dental treatment sandwiched within rejuvenating vacations. The Costa Rican Tourist Board provides a wealth of information regarding leading attractions. You just need to decide whether you require a sun-filled tropical beach, a grand eco-adventure, the sights and sounds of scintillating cultures, or relaxation in almost unimagined comfort in a luxury hotel.
