Costa Rica is a developing country providing jobs, but before you think to move for good the advice is to come as a tourist to understand the country and see for yourself what’s on offer and then decide the change of life and what could take, hold account to speak Spanish and English is also required for many jobs as the American influence is present especially in tourist areas and in international companies.
The salaries are lowest compared to Europe or USA, but enough to live.

In tourist areas you can find a job for high season (type waiter, bartender, etc ..) and it is fairly easy if you are familiar with both languages and professional.
