35% Discount Offered To National Tourists
An intensified campaign to spur local tourism starts in August will mean discounts of up to 35% during the low season and 20% in the high season for Costa Rican nationals.

The ministro de Turismo, Carlos Ricardo Benavides and the president of Canatur, Gonzalo Vargas, yesterday unveiled a program that includes 118 participating businesses that include hotels, travel agencies, tour operators, car rentals and restaurants, that will offer the discounts.

The program called "Redescubra su país" (Rediscover your country) is being promoted by the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo (ICE) - tourism board, the Cámara Nacional de Turismo (Canatur) - national tourism chamber, the Cámara Costarricense de Hoteles (hotel chamber) and the Banco Nacional (BN).

The Tourism minister said that he hopes that the program will increase tourist activity by as much as 20% by the end of the year.

The program is geared towards Ticos (Costa Ricans) to visit every corner of the country, the tourism industry spending as much as ¢200 million colones on television and newspaper advertising to promote the program.

For his part, the president of the Cámara de Hoteleros, Carlos Lachner, the national tourist is the main support of the industry and had no doubt that local tourist will maintain the industry afloat in the face of a decrease of the expected drop in US tourists, a result of the economic conditions of the US.
