Posts about Costa Rica

We have a variety of secure, quick, and easy-to-use money transfer services to Costa Rica:

Cash Pickup. One of the most simple ways to transfer funds is via cash pickup. All you need to do is to send money for cash pickup to any of our cash pickup collection locations in Costa Rica. This method is accessible to everyone, especially to any friends, family, or business partners in Costa Rica who may not be familiar with receiving money online and prefer to collect physical cash.

Bank Deposits. A bank deposit is exactly what it sounds like. You can send money directly to a bank account of your choice and the transfer is facilitated by Small World to ensure your money is absolutely secure and convenient.

On our web page, you can compare our exchange rates and preview how much your transfer is in colones. This way, you can compare how much the exchange rate is between the US dollar and Costa Rican colón, the euro, and the GBP or any other currency you want to send through your transfer.
