Hopefully travel will make a triumphant comeback in 2021, and we can stop longing for those faraway destinations we’ve had to put on the back burner. Costa Rica is already looking forward to the new year, with a campaign designed to encourage travel to Costa Rica. Visit Costa Rica, the country’s tourism agency, is asking people to nominate someone who has made a meaningful difference in their lives to win a free trip to Costa Rica.
The “Who is Essential to You” campaign is accepting nominations from all across the US. Fifteen winners will be selected and awarded a trip for two to Costa Rica for seven days. The prize includes roundtrip coach airfare to Costa Rica, six nights in hotel accommodations, a $200 meal voucher, ground transportation, and travel insurance (including COVID-19 coverage).
Nominations are being accepted starting November 26, 2020, through January 31, 2021, at 11:59 PM EST. The best part is you have over a year to take the trip; all trips must be taken by February 28, 2022. More information about nominations will be available online once the contest goes live on November 26, but you should be prepared to share a story about why the nominee deserves a trip to Costa Rica and what impact they’ve had on your life.
More contest rules and details can be found on the campaign’s official contest page.
