Costa Rica Shipping News – Are you looking to send a small package to Costa Rica? A lot of people are.
If you are looking to ship a package to Costa Rica you can use local shipping company Economy Shipping and visit their website here.
There are 24,000 packages entering daily from stores like Wish and Aliexpress.com.
The packages coming from this market increased 826% from June 2015 and June 2016. They are sent to the country by Correos de Costa Rica and enter through customs in the Zapote office.
Products being shipped in include watches, clothes, jewelry, and shoes.
These shops are now widely used by Ticos. The Chinese shops sell all kinds of products, just like Amazon and eBay but at much lower prices. The prices are lower because they ship through the local mail system not private services.
Before, the office in Zapote was open 8 am to 4 pm but its hours have been extended to 5 pm.
In January, they hired two more people to improve delivery time. Now there are five employees there.
