Exchange Rate in Costa Rica
Costa Rica - Exchange RateAfter GDP contracted at a softer pace in Q1, leading indicators point to a continued recovery in Q2. Economic activity improved through April–June, although this was partly due to a low base effect as the corresponding period in 2020 saw a sharp pandemic-induced contraction in activity. Moreover, a lower unemployment rate in the quarter likely bolstered spending, while faster growth on average in both merchandise imports and exports suggests improving demand dynamics in the period. Meanwhile, after receiving a sizable vaccine donation from the U.S. in mid-July, the country’s inoculation efforts have advanced at a rapid pace: In just over a month, the amount of people with at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose went from nearly 35% in mid-July to around 60% in early September. Moreover, authorities further eased restrictions on the services sector and personal mobility from 1 September.
