Essential COSTA RICA: Costa Rica’s ICTs Deliver Big!

With over 300 experienced information and technology supply companies (ICT) on hand to deliver quality services, Costa Rica is fast becoming Latin America’s biggest hub for all things digital.

The country’s ICT menu offers specialized software engineering, app development, video games and animation, digital content production, cloud technical support, and nearshore talent outsourcing. Just to name a few options.
Pedro Beirute, CEO of the government agency responsible for promoting Costa Rican goods and services to the world, PROCOMER, says Costa Rica has become a regional hub for delivering excellence. “We provide a mature environment for complex business processes and are the top exporter of value-added services in the region,” he says. “And some 88% of our companies in the ICT sector are experienced in working with international markets.”
Beirute adds that ICT isn’t the only thing the country’s good at. Tourism, foreign direct investment opportunities, and the exportation of superior-quality agricultural and manufactured goods all draw serious attention from the global community.
