Costa Rica is always an attractive option to invest in Latin America; the outsourcing modality is growing and becoming more and more popular to USA companies who choose Costa Rica as their Outsourcing destination because of the many advantages the Country has, the Human Talent the Proximity with the US (this is where our name comes from!), and a great Business Environment. As the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency says, “in an innovative business world, Costa Rica is ready for the challenge of taking high tech industries and showing how a tradition of peace, education and innovation are the perfect formula to make business”
With the constitution in 1949, Costa Rica decided to ban any armed forces, making it one of only a handful of countries in the world without an army, still to this day. By investing in education instead of funding an army, Costa Rica now boasts a 98% literacy rate, the highest in Latin America. The Costa Rican workforce stands out for its high educational standards and outstanding productivity levels. These capabilities are the expected outcome of a historical commitment to pursue greater economic growth and higher living standards through an energetic and widespread educational policy at all levels of instruction. Education in Costa Rica is free and mandatory since 1870 and the English is mandatory as a second language in all schools, both private and public.
Other elements that make Costa Rica a great option to do IT outsourcing are:
- A Highly skilled labor force
- Strategic location near to the USA (Proximity!)
- Costa Rica is in Central Standard Time.
- 5 – 5 Hours Flight from major US Cities.
- Direct Flights from major US cities.
- High safety index
- Business culture is very aligned with North
- Low environmental risks
- Multilingual capabilities
