Bengal Cat Travel to Costa Rica

Name: Icelle

Pet Type: Cat
Pet Breed: Bengal
From: MA, USA

Hi PetRelocation,

Does Costa Rica have any travel restrictions when it comes to domestic Bengal cats? My cat is an F-6 Bengal cat. She has some "wild blood" in her ancestry, but it's very far removed and she is a domesticated pet (like regular house cat).

I know, for example, in Hawaii Bengal cats are not allowed to enter the state at all. Also, is there a quarantine period?

Thanks!
