Alajuela is growing as Costa Rica boom industrial town
Alajuela is now regarded as the center of industrial development in Costa Rica as new companies flood in.
Businesses have invested nearly $300 million over the last two years, and construction has grown by 90 percent.
The city's principal advantage is its logistics. It lies a few kilometers away from the Juan Santamaría international airport and major highways criss-cross the area.
