Costa Rica is, without a doubt, one of the most spectacular sites in the world due to its privileged location in the Central American isthmus, between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Costa Rica's flora and fauna make for a real tropical paradise that contains five percent of the world's biodiversity. National parks and protected areas make up almost twenty-five percent of the country's territory.
The city of San Jose is located right in the geographical center of the country and it is known for having some of the widest parks in all of America. In recent years the city has experienced an architectural boom which has modernized it without taking away its small town charm.
Just twenty minutes away from San Jose lays one of the most beautiful rainforests in the world and a two-hour drive leads to the white beaches of the Pacific Coast. You will also find within a short distance mountains, volcanoes (112 of them!), lagoons and rivers.
Being a tropical country, Costa Rica has two seasons: rainy and dry. The rainy season lasts between May and November, with mornings being usually sunny and storms moving in later in the day. The dry season starts in december and ends in April.
Talent & Casting
Caucasians and Mestizos make up over ninety percent of the population. Costa Rica receives more immigrants than any other Central American country. Immigrants from Nicaragua, Colombia, the United States, Europe and Southern Asia represent almost twelve percent of the population. A short flight away from either Miami or Rio, or even Buenos Aires, bringing talent over is commonplace.
Crew, Equipment & Post
Costa Rica has developed a rather small but brilliant film industry. Our production teams are resourceful, talented, creative, ambitious and hard-working and pay their undivided attention to each project they embark in.
Costa Rica offers top-notch equipment, but any equipment necessary not available in the country can be easily imported from Los Angeles or Miami.
How to get there
Most international flights from Europe and the United States arrive at Juan Santamaria international airport, a short ride away from San Jose. Some flights from major US cities land at Liberia, northeast of San Jose. Most of the leading international airlines offer direct flights from the US and the rest of Latin America and the national airline, Lacsa, provides excellent service with the highest standards.
Costa Rica's standard time zone is GTM -06.
Costa Rica has a highly-developed hotel industry, even in remote areas. Hotel rates are usually higher during the dry season, from december to april, and get considerably lower in the rainy season, which starts in May and ends in November.
