Situation had bad impact on country’s tourism

The story about the ATV accident near Jacó and how the injured tourist was treated angered everyone who read it. The ripple effect for something like this is far reaching and very, very negative for Costa Rica’s tourism industry. Wake Up Costa Rica!! If you want tourists you need to change your laws and standards.

In the United States, it is a criminal matter not to render care, especially to a critically injured person, until payment is received. In Costa Rica, it’s business as usual?

I shared the article with a number of people who have never been to Costa Rica. I guarantee that they will never have any desires to visit Costa Rica, and I guarantee that they shared what they read with numerous people.
