During Costa Rica's first boom, the Liberia airport in the northern region was upgraded to receive international flights. Real estate sales in Guanacaste exploded, high-end resorts and developments flourished, including flag ship developments like the Papagayo Four Seasons hotel.

Breaking the traditional mould of the Costa Rican economy that depended on coffee, bananas and cattle has not been easy but the government is slowly but steadily transforming the economy to a microprocessor and telecommunication based one.
