The Instituto Costarricense de Turismo is seeking bids for a producer to create a video urging tourists to remain secure during their visits here.
The video is supposed to be in Spanish and in English. It will be distributed to hotels, airlines and other tourism operators.
The tourism institute has estimated the cost at 5 million colons, about $10,000 and has outlined the way it wants the video done.
Steven Spielberg need not apply. The institute said in a bid offering that applicants must have done videos for the institute in high definition at least twice. Applicants also need five years of experience.
The project was announced last week and the deadline for proposal is Thursday, according to the offering.
Also not eligible are the staffers at the U.S. Embassy. They made a humorous video a year ago that still is on YouTubeHERE!
A forlorn tourist is victimized even before he left the airport. That is where he lost his luggage to a thief, according to the video. The man’s visit goes downhill from there. He meets pretty girls in a bar, and when he wakes up, his backpack is gone. At the beach he leaves his car keys on the sand along with his few remaining possessions.
That’s where he loses a sandal as well as the car. The full story is HERE!
