According to a chart I posted on another section, In Central America, 222 confirmed, 2 dead, 4 recovered. Used to be, CR had the 3rd best medical system in the world (if you can get to a hospital) If you get sick there, at least you won't lose everything you own. When I used to go, I hoped they wouldn't flay me home.

Puntarenas and San Jose. The Puntarenas option was no Bueno.

The epidemic in the US might peak around June, if columnist Nick Kristof of the NY Times found the right experts. If so, August better?

    Guatemala isn't allowing people from the US to visit.
    "The New Zealand Government has announced that travellers arriving in New Zealand are required to self-isolate for 14 days. Restrictions will be reviewed in the next 16 days."
    So watch out, things are likely to change. What we know is that the epidemic is just getting started on a large scale in the US and likely as not now through maybe July will be a time of little or no travel.

I have multiple clients either in Costa Rica right now or about to travel there soon. Some have asked to cancel their trip because they are being told they need to self-quarantine for 2 weeks when they get back. Luckily I booked their lodging where they had free cancellation up to a few days out. Flights are a different issue, but the airlines are trying to be accommodating. And then you can always get travel insurance, including one with a 'cancel for any reason' rider. I recommend Travel Insured for their good service and fair prices.

Southwest is having a sale. I rebooked my late May-June flight, already cheap, for $89 cheaper. I doubt that travel will be practical during that period. The epidemic might be peaking and the airports might be closed. Right now, listening to the Jacksonsville Symphony, live. They're performing in an empty auditorium. They'd rehearsed, and they do broadcasts, so why not?

All the major ski resorts in Utah are closing as of 3/15. Some of the smaller, more remote ones staying open with limited tickets and operations. Similar in Colorado, from what I hear. Mt. Hood (Oregon) planning to stay open, but with major events cancelled.

I'm increasingly expecting virus infections to peak around May or (more likely) June in the US, maybe different elsewhere. The virus may not thrive in hot weather, so might not be as much of a problem in Central America as in some other places, and there might be an overall slowdown in the northern hemisphere winter. Then a second wave of infections in fall. The virus may be around at relatively low levels for a year or more. So I don't know when normal travel may resume.

Foreigners who entered Costa Rica on a tourist visa after December 17, 2019, can legally remain in Costa Rica until May 17, 2020, according to a release from the agency.
