Government promotes tourism in France

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The government through the Costa Rican Tourism Institute promoted the country as a tourist destination at the Top Resa Fair, which took place four days last week in France.

According to the institute, the country's participation in the fair is part of the strategy to develop the European tourist market for Costa Rica.

In previous editions, the statistics of the fair have reported an attendance of more than 34,000 visits by tourism professionals. 1,700 brands related to tourism services have also been presented, and 160 places have been promoted as tourist destinations, said the institute.

"The professional visitors are French travel agents, product managers, agents specializing in events, business trip managers, tour group organizers," among others, said the institute in its statement.

Costa Rican companies that were supported by the institute to have a stand at the fair were: Hotel Tango Mar, Altatica, Mawamba Group, Cactus Tour, Go Tours, Morpho Evasions Costa Rica, Enchanting Hotels, Destination Services, Playa Cativo Lodge, Horizontes Nature Tours, Laguna Lodge Tortuguero, Tucaya Costa Rica, Barcelo Group, Cast Central America, Grupo Anc Costa Rica and Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge.

In addition, Maria Amalia Revelo, minister of Tourism participated in three events convened by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris: a meeting of its Tourism Committee; a private breakfast with the secretary-general of the organization, Angel Gurría and a meeting considering the start-up of welfare metrics in political actions.

According to Revelo, the Tourism Committee discussed the need to guide the organization member countries and prepare them to better face the challenges posed by new technologies in the tourism sector.

"Costa Rica was applauded at the round table on well-being in recognition of obtaining the Earth Champions Award granted by the United Nations Organization last week," said the institute in its statement.

At the meeting, there were also representatives of the United Arab Emirates, Finland, Scotland and New Zealand.
