Looking for Business Ideas? Costa Rica has Endless Opportunties

Written by Michael Simons on . Posted in Costa Rica Living, Costa Rica Service Providers, EX PATS in Costa Rica, FAQ's, Investing in Costa Rica, Papagayo Region

If you’re looking for business ideas Costa Rica has much to offer. What kind of 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.  Some in their 20s and 30s, who have that entrepreneurial bug, are opening businesses and bringing their children along as well and 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 their 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 ideas group discussion

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.

Costa Rica expats and the history of Gitingas Bags

Costa Rica expats Lisa and Rhonda

We wanted to tell the story of two friends of ours–Costa Rica expats–who have found their passion and purpose in our little slice of Paradise.  Lisa Martin and Rhonda Cardella come from different backgrounds and parts of the United States but discovered a common ground in Costa Rica and have created Gitingas Beach Bags.  Gitingas was formed as a fusion  of Lisa’s sewing knowledge and Rhonda’s Art Skill.

Their full line of Beach Bags, Hand Bags and Accessories are made of durable materials made to stand up to the sun and sand of Costa Rica’s Beaches and adventures.  Each Bag is adorned with Rhonda’s unique art or with flora and fauna typical of the Guanacaste Region and are designed by Lisa to last.  You can find their Bags at various shops around town as well as on their website gitingashandbags.com

Check out the video where Rhonda and Lisa explain how Gitingas was started in Costa Rica from scratch
