Costa Rica Escrow–What is required to open an account?

Upon acceptance of an offer, a secure escrow account is set up with a company that is registered with the banking authority of Costa Rica, known as SUGEF. They will act as a third party to insure that everyone is protected during the closing. Do not allow a law firm or a real estate company to accept or handle your money. ALWAYS ask for a separate, secured, registered Escrow Company to handle the funds.
