Costa Rica Makes World’s Safe Vacation List

Costa Rica - Safe Zone

Looking for a safe destination for your family vacation this year?  With the threat of terrorism hanging over a number of European countries, the British Foreign Office has identified Costa Rica as one of the world’s lowest risk vacation destinations.  Repercussions from conflicts in Iraq and Syria have led to a number of traditionally popular tourist spots being redefined as high risk.

Poland, Lichtenstein, Iceland, Japan, the Seychelles, the Bahamas, Malta, Slovenia, and Fiji were also named as countries where terrorist attacks were considered unlikely.  So 2016 is the year to skip Europe and the U.S.A. for your vacation and head to the peaceful, eco-friendly land of Costa Rica.
