For up to date information you need the foreign office website. "All visitors to Costa Rica arriving from any of the following countries (Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, French Guyana, Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Gambia and Sudan) are now required to produce an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis documenting yellow fever vaccination before entry to Costa Rica will be granted. Certificates are valid 10 days after the date of vaccination." Surely better safe than sorry?

Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
