Saudia Arabian prince vacationing in Costa Rica

(Tico Times) - The Prince of Saudi Arabia and one of the richest men in the world Alwaleed bin Talal is in Costa Rica vacationing at the Four Seasons Resort in the northwestern Guanacaste province, according to the daily La Nacion.

The 52-year-old prince, who is a shareholder in the hotel, arrived Saturday night at Daniel Oduber International Airport, in the Guanacaste city of Liberia. His massive Boeing 747 plane came from Panama, his previous stop on a trip that also included the Dominican Republic and will continue in Guatemala when he leaves Costa Rica Tuesday.

Today he is scheduled to meet with President Oscar Arias, La Nacion reported.

This billionaire received extra special treatment upon arriving at Daniel Oduber. He was saved the trouble of waiting in line at Immigration by having documents delivered to him to fill out inside the plane. Then he and his 48-person entourage traveled from Liberia to the posh resort in an 18-vehicle fleet.

While the prince and his party are staying at the Four Seasons, the hotel has restricted the presence of other guests for security reasons, the daily reported.
