Before his talks with Arias, Hui will meet with parliament speaker Francisco Pacheco.
Hui will be accompanied by top officials from China's ministries of hydraulic resources, trade and foreign affairs, the Costa Rican foreign ministry said.
China promised to finance the construction of a new, 60-million-dollar stadium in Costa Rica after San Jose switched allegiance to Beijing last June, ending 63 years of relations with Taiwan.
