The Safe Travel Voyager insurance plan provides a visa letter stating that the Costa Rica health insurance for visitors covers Covid 19 illness, which is used to complete the Health Pass document and QR code generation. Therefore this plan cannot be bought if the traveler has already left the US. This visa letter can be downloaded online after buying the plan online. To only satisfy the Costa Rica health insurance for visitors requirements, you can use a $0 trip cost and the date you purchased your plane ticket or travel package as the trip deposit date, this will reduce the price of the Safe Travels voyager plan.
The Safe Travels Voyager plan is a trip cancellation plan which means you can insure the value of your trip. However, Costa Rica does not care whether you insure your trip or not. If you enter $500 or less for "trip cost", you will pay the lowest possible rate. Also, the policy is not cancellable (except within the first 10 day "free look" period) since it is meant to be used in case of trip cancellation.
Note that only some specific situations are listed for refund of non-reimbursable costs of your trip (up to what you insured). If you want more flexibility, many people can opt for a "Cancel For Any Reason" rider (or CFAR). If you invoke the CFAR rider, you only get 75% of your money back and you must cancel at least 24 hours before you depart. Note that this policy is technically not extendable as it is meant to cover a single trip only.

Corcovado National Park is one of Costa Rica most popular tourist attractions. It was established in 1975 when it was declared a protected area to prevent gold mining. Today the park includes an area of 164 square miles or 424 square kilometres, and can boast of being the largest primary forest on the American Pacific coastline. Corcovado National Park is known as one of the most bio-diverse locations anywhere on the globe, which includes Jaguars, Scarlet Macaws, Sloths, Coatis and plenty of howler monkeys. All of this making it a dense rich rainforest.
The Corcovado National Park is open to the public both for day trips as well as for overnight trips as long as all visitors are accompanied by a certified guide.
Layout of Corcovado National Park:There are Four ranger stations inside the Corcovado National Park namely, Sirena, San Pedrillo, La Leona, and Los Patos. There are tourist trails from each of these ranger stations. While Los Patos, La Leona, and San Pedrillo stations are located on the edges of the park, Sirena is located at the very heart of the park and is connected by walking trails to La Leona and Los Patos.
The Safe Travels Voyager plan is a Trip Cancellation insurance. You can insure the value of your trip (that is, any non-reimbursable costs you would lose should you have to cancel your trip last-minute. However, this is NOT a requirement of Costa Rica. If you want only to cover the basic requirements of insurance for the lowest price, you can do so by entering $500 or less for "Trip Cost" per person.
If you do want to insure the value of your trip, a number here above $500 will add to the cost of the policy, but may be worth it for you since you will be able to get your money back should you have to cancel for an approved reason via the policy (see brochure for details).
If you want more flexibility in your cancellation options, then you can choose for the "Cancel For Any Reason" rider (not available in all states). This option is only available if you
Note that invoking this rider, you will only get 75% of your documented losses for your trip. However, this will give you the most flexibility as border closings due to COVID are NOT usual options on a trip cancellation policy. You can literally cancel for whatever reason you choose.
The accommodation benefit is a trip delay benefit on the policy. The Trip Delay benefit can be used in case of quarantine or other delay for at least 6 hours on your trip. Be sure you keep all documentation of your delay and receipts of extra expenses incurred during that time. Covered trip delay expenses may include: pre-paid unused and nonrefundable expenses of accommodations, reasonable food and lodging expenses, expenses of rejoining your tour/group and even a one-way economy fare ticket to return you to your originally scheduled return destination. If you are kenneling pets at a facility near your home and they will have to stay longer, this can be reimbursed as well as expenses they incur if you are traveling with your pets! Note that the Safe Travels Voyager now allows you to increase your trip delay expense to $4000 or even $6000. If you are traveling with pets or think you may have additional expenses, this may be a good option for you!
YES! This is the only US based company we are aware of that offers the minimum $2000 trip delay benefit (they call it a quarantine/accommodation benefit). Others offer cover for COVID-19, but the key component is the trip delay benefit. Unfortunately, you cannot purchase only this part of the plan. However, since it meets ALL the requirements (exceeds the $50,000 coverage which includes COVID-19 illness), you don’t need to have anything else! Furthermore, you will get a "Visa Letter" for each person on the policy which will explicitly state all the relevant benefits of the policy AND the fact that it covers COVID-19 like any other illness.

This ranger station is enclosed by secondary rainforest and therefore attracts many animals to its trails. Visitors are likely to find Monkeys, Sloths, Coatis, Caymans and many varieties of birds.
The San Pedrillo ranger station is a primary rainforest region and visitors can be amazed by trees which are over a hundred year old. The station is however not as rich in wildlife, but it more than makes up with flora for what it lacks in fauna.
The La Leona ranger station is located on the southern side of the park. It does not have as many trails as the other two, however visitors can hike up to Leona Creek and explore the pristine forest habitat..
The Los Patos ranger station can be reached via the La Palma community from Puerto Jimenez or by a long Eight to Ten hour hike from the Sirena station. Los Patos is only visited on an overnight or multi-day treks.
