Business and Corporate Structure in Costa Rica

Hundreds of local and foreign merchants, businessmen, and entrepreneurs want to make their dream come true: creating their own business in Costa Rica and live out of them. The truth is that nations depend heavily on private enterprises to create wealth, with that in mind hundreds of years ago governments created the first corporations.
