The myth is that it is the first McD outside the United States. But, according to the McDonald’s corporate website, the chain expand into international markets beginning in 1967 opening in Canada and Puerto Rico before Costa Rica.

Today, there are more than 50 McD’s in Costa Rica. In the downtown core of San Jose, it is hard to walk more than a few blocks without McDonald’s.
