The Institute of Tourism of Costa Rica awarded the “Who is important to you?” competition winners:

The Institute of Tourism of Costa Rica conducted a study “Who is important to you?” contest, which was attended by 5,800 Americans and Canadians. The competition rewarded 15 winners with a vacation in Costa Rica with a companion between March 2021 and early 2022.

The competition was to nominate someone who inspired during those first months of confinement and uncertainty caused by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

An inspiration to his wife Barbara Beck during the difficult times of quarantine, illness and death caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Canadian geek Lucas Beck won a 7-day trip to Costa Rica.

“I would like to nominate my husband, Lucas Beck, who has been working very hard during the Covid-19 pandemic. He is a computer technician and has made sure that people and students working from home have reasonably priced computers so they can work and stay at school.

Unfortunately his mother passed away on New Year’s Eve (2021) due to Covid-19, it was quite hard for him and I think he would really enjoy a holiday in Costa Rica to gain strength, rest a bit and process the pain.” there was a message written by Barbara when appointing her partner.

A gift presented by Barbara, Lucas assured that he came just in time, because he needed a rest.

“We are already in Canada, unfortunately. I wish we were still in Costa Rica, we had a great time, definitely the best holiday we have ever had. The beach at Carrillo (Guanacaste) was incredible, the guides were very knowledgeable and we were impressed with the Costa Ricans, very friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, especially the fresh fruit,” Beck said a few days ago, recalling what he experienced in our country and as one of the winners of this ICT campaign.

He, his wife and three children enjoyed canopy tours in Monteverde and snorkeling in Guanacaste, commenting that Costa Rica was a clean and safe place.

Moreover, Adrienne Cox from Wyoming, USA, noted her desire to return to the country someday. She traveled with her husband Brian, whom she assigned as the person she needed, her family, and Johnson Junior High School, where he is principal.

“We heard a group of monkeys on the opposite hillside when we were in Punta Islita. it was phenomenal! Thanks to everyone who allowed us to visit your beautiful country and for all the work you did to make sure we had a great time. We will always carry Costa Rica in our hearts as a place of wonder and beauty,” Cox commented.

The competition in Costa Rica was supported by companies associated with the tourism sector, in collaboration with the Chamber of Hotels and the association ProImagen-Futuropa. Hotels such as Punta Islita, Nammbú, El Establo and companies such as Rainforest Adventure and Catarata La Fortuna were vital to the winners’ enjoyment of their experience.
