This behavior coincides with the entry last August of the president of the Central Bank, Rodrigo Cubero, who precisely announced upon his arrival that under his management there would be greater exchange flexibility.

In its monthly commentary on the economy for October, published on Friday, October 26, the Central Bank explained that the pressure on the exchange rate in September and so far in October is consistent with a lower availability of foreign currency in the Costa Rican market.

“Although the seasonality that characterizes these months influenced this behavior, the lack of a solution to the structural problem of public finances generates uncertainty among some economic agents, it is estimated increased the demand for foreign currency,” said the Bank.
