As the economy recovers and tourism grows the number of jobs increase for Costa Rica. Foreign investment is also attracted to this country and with it thousands of jobs are becoming available.

The number of workers in Costa Rica’s construction industry grew in the first five months of this year compared to the first half of last year.

The increase amounted to 2,700 workers on average. The figure is important because it points to positive change.

Jobs were lost in construction during the first half of 2009 and 2010.

The increase in jobs is yet another indicator that tourism will be picking up in the near future, hopefully by this year’s high season, which begins approximately in November. In the near future, vacationers looking for trips to Costa Rica, or holidays to playa del ingles, or Jaco, will be able to book their vacation package and travel to Costa Rica and experience the heightened economy and improved infrastructure. There is already a orward movement in Guanacaste to greatly improve the infrastructure for those who live there full-time, part-time, and for those who vacation on the sunny shores of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast.

Whether coming to Costa Rica on business, for personal matters, or for vacation, the future is looking productive here in this little slice of paradise. And for those who live here, the increase in jobs is a welcomed sigh of relief.
