.Com is the favorite in Costa Rica.
I just returned from a weeklong vacation in Costa Rica. I hadn’t been to Costa Rica in 15 years, and my visit reminded me why people like to vacation there, but also the niceties of living in the United States (like well-paved roads).
Of course, I also paid attention to what types of domain names people used. Here’s what I observed:
1. Almost all of the domain names were .com.
2. Very few businesses used .CR domain names. A more common approach was to use .com with CR right before the .com.
3. Even though many businesses had a .com domain name, many used free email accounts for email (such as @yahoo.com or @hotmail.com).
One of the funniest photos I took was of this jack-of-all-trades storefront near the beach. How about some SEO work with your kayak rental?
