Can we Bring Our Pets to Costa Rica ?

Yes. Dogs and cats will not be an issue.  Other exotic animals depend on the species so check the Costa Rican consulate or embassy.

You will need to present the Costa Rican customs officials a certificate of health for your pet.  You can get these forms from your veterinary.  Simply call them and let them know you’re taking your dog/cat to Costa Rica and they will know which forms to fill out so you can take it with you on your trip.

If you travel with your pet without the proper paperwork your pet will not be allowed into the country.  It will be quarantined in these large kennels in customs for day’s even weeks for observation before they release it and you will not be able to visit your pet.

For more detailed information you can visit the website of the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica which has a section of bringing your pets.
