Maria Amalia Revelo, minister of tourism, Costa Rica

This is my fifteenth ITB Berlin, the first time I came to Berlin was in 1990. It is a big show for us. 38 companies and exhibitors are on our stand. They do very professional work and know exactly what opportunities ITB Berlin can offer them. Their preparation and follow-up work is outstanding. I am pleased that the market is growing and people are staying two to three weeks. On average visitors stay 17 nights with us in three to five places. For Costa Rica tourism is a big opportunity to improve the quality of life and well-being of our citizens. If together we all learn to develop tourism as an industry then we will be able to handle worldwide growth. In Costa Rica we have made a clear decision to develop sustainable tourism which involves the whole country. Small and medium-sized enterprises provide 95 per cent of accommodation. We want to maintain our values and keep our children, and know exactly what we do and do not want.
