Costa Rica and Capital City Boast New Online Maps

August 7, 2009

After several months of work, the National Tourism Chamber (CANATUR) has unveiled two new digital maps of Costa Rica with the hope of providing tourists with the maximum amount of information possible.

The two maps – one of San José and another of the entire country – detail roads and highways, popular tourist locations such as beaches and national parks and the distances between commonly visited towns and points of interest.

The San José maps also provide practical information about the metropolitan area, such as the location of government institutions, hospitals with phone numbers and well-known city reference points.

“These maps, without a doubt, allow a much higher range and level of accessibility for any person in all parts of the world,” Gonzalo Vargas, president of CANATUR, said in a statement. “They attempt to give more attention to Costa Rican tourist destinations and make it easy and fast for the tourist.”

Both maps can be found on the lefthand column of the chamber’s Web site: www.costaricatourism.co.cr. The chamber will update the map with latest business, destination and visitor information every six months.
