What kind of Costa Rica Business Opportunities exist?

Although many of my clients are retirees, who come here to enjoy their twilight years, the dynamics of our community is changing. Younger people are relocating to paradise, in their 20s and 30s, who have that entrepreneurial bug, opening businesses and bringing their children along as well; putting them into private bilingual schools. They see the opportunities that exist here, and want to capitalize, especially as it is getting harder and harder to succeed in North America, with all of the rules, regulations, taxes and competition. Also, many people who contact me are in the 40s and 50s. They are not mentally or financially ready to retire yet, and want to reinvent themselves. They are tired of their previous careers and want to enjoy a better lifestyle, while redefining their lives.

Costa Rica Business Opportunities

Costa Rica Business opportunities are endless really. We have a big advantage, as we already know what works. We have lived in North America, and seen every type of business imaginable. So you don’t have to INVENT something new, just take the model and apply it here in Costa Rica. It is almost like having a time machine. We know what types of businesses succeed, we know what works; we just need to fill in the blanks.
