The first thing you notice as you arrive in Costa Rica is that it reminds you of North America in the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s. The country and the people have maintained that sense of innocence that we lost somewhere in the 1980’s.
The average life span for the population is 82, which speaks volumes about the quality of the public and private health care system. The area has recently become a Mecca for cosmetic dentistry and plastic surgery, because of first class results and low costs. Most Doctors have been trained in North America, but price their services for the local economy.
Qualified, intelligent, inexpensive and English speaking labor is readily available, a key factor in the decision of Intel to build their main microprocessor production plant in the Central Valley. Recently industries like costomer service call centers, e-commerce and other value added good service provisions are on a rising demand from abroad and within the country. What this also exemplifies is that there is a talented, readily available, affordable, and bilingual source of labor for whatever project or venture you have in mind.
Under most circumstance starting a business here employing Costa Rica labor can mean substantial tax savings for foreign investors and a real way to create and maintain wealth.
