Costa Rica cut ties with Cuba in 1961, two years after Fidel Castro's revolution, but has stepped up consular and commercial relations in recent years.
Arias, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987 for his role in bringing Central American civil wars to an end, has made a number of diplomatic shifts since taking office in 2006, including opening diplomatic relations with China and the Palestinian Authority.
