After the results of the elections, the dollar fell ¢7 in just one week, dropping to ¢661 according to the reference price of the Banco Central de Costa Rica (BCCR) – Costa Rica’s Central Bank.

Economist, Jorge Benavides, agreed with financial analyst, Daniel Suchar, that the sale of the currency could decrease by as much as ¢15 colones in the coming weeks and remain stable, although it will depend on the government’s decisions.
