Costa Rica has been on the radar of major multinationals since the days when fruit companies had such a huge influence. These days the country has many multinationals in industries such as technology and finance as well. Costa Rica is also a center for marketing that serves the rest of Central America.
Intel manufactures computer chips and HP maintains call centers. Emerson and Siemens provide engineering consulting and installations. Conair, Merck and others have recently started operations in the country.
Executives for these companies come and go and need executive housing in Costa Rica. We have owner and manager clients that specialize in providing high quality homes, condos and apartments for executives in Costa Rica, which may be turn key (completely furnished) but for rent long term. There are also plenty of unfurnished options.
Most of these options are located in the Central Valley surrounding San Jose as that is where most of the multinationals operate. The tax free zones are in the Central Valley for the most part, so many homes and condos for executives are nearby. You will find corporate housing in trendy areas such as Escazu, Santa Ana, Rohrmoser, Curridibat, Zapote, Tres Rios, Heredia and Alajuela.
There is also a second type of business tenant who carries a laptop and operates globally. Some are contractors and some are business owners who have figured out how to free themselves from the office. You will find this type of executive renting all over the country as long as there is an internet connection. More and more business people stay in coastal areas like Tamarindo and Manuel Antonio and work remotely. Typically they are close to either the Liberia or San Jose International Airports, but you can find them further away in places like Dominical as well.
