The REAL Costa Rica
 



Costa Rica Business Resources

Thinking of doing business in Costa Rica?  Costa Rica and all of Latin America in general, represent opportunity.  In general, I believe the opportunities for all Latin America are sadly underrated by many companies.  There are solid markets here for a wide variety of products and services, and a work force eager to get your product to market.  The government is stable.  There are no military concerns (Costa Rica has no armed forces), and Costa Rica's central location is ideal to service the entire Latin American market.  Intel, Merck, Panasonic and many others know this.

Here is a list of places to start. Click to view.
