los suenos costa ricaTourism shapes the Costa Rican economy. Every year billions of dollars pour into the market, stimulated through resort reservations, charter services and coastal-themed shops. Travel bolsters the entire country.

It takes more than border crossings to sustain the Los Suenos, Jaco and Manuel Antonio regions, however. There are instead other economic forces to consider.

According to the Encyclopedia of the Nations, the major industries of Costa Rica are:

Textiles
Coffee Exportation
Cocoa Processing
Plastic Production
Electronics
Aluminum Processing
Petrochemicals

These enterprises - which are both locally owned and internationally subsidized - create steady profits, helping to define a strong economy. Tourism’s impact is undeniable, but industrialization is quickly progressing. The two will soon share equal credit for Costa Rica’s success.
