Economy & Business

Costa Rica is one of the safest and most attractive countries for investment in the world.

Costa Rica enjoys a stable and strong democracy, and the Costa Rican government maintains a positive stance in regards to financial security and tax laws, and this makes it very attractive to invest in the country.

Having the most educated and computer literate population in Central America is a great incentive for multinational and high technology corporations to settle in Costa Rica and take advantage of this important human asset.

The economy has been gradually shifting from the traditional coffee, bananas and cattle raising activities to services oriented on the microprocessor production and high-tech telecommunications industries.

Costa Rican Currency
The Costa Rican currency is called the "Colon". See a collection of currency notes used as money in Costa Rica since 1899.

Costa Rica's basically stable economy depends on tourism, agriculture, and electronics exports.
