Costa Rica does not publish house price statistics. The Banco Central de Costa Rica has general statistics on production, employment, business confidence, the country's fiscal position, etc. The Instituto Nacional de Estad'stica y Censos has rather basic web pages. The Ministerio de Hacienda de la Republica de Costa Rica has quite a creditable-looking set of pages, but some of the actual data is very old.
