Nearshore Software Development Team Travel

Can my Nearshore Software Development team come to the United States?

Absolutely! Our clients typically bring the Software Development Team Lead (and sometimes, the whole team) to the United States for a week or two at the beginning of the software development project.

Following the initial project kick-off meeting, it is typical for the nearshore software development team to visit the U.S. about once a quarter. Having the nearshore software development team work alongside their U.S. teammates really enhances the team dynamic.

We also encourage you to bring your software development team to our nearshore software development location in Costa Rica. We have a large modern office in beautiful San José, Costa Rica, that is great for team meetings, planning sessions and collaboration.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country to visit with gorgeous beaches, exotic wildlife reserves, active volcanoes, lush rainforests, and much more.

One of the best things about our nearshore location in Escazú, San José, Costa Rica is the convenience for international travel.  While it might be incredibly expensive, and take more than 24 hours of travel to reach some faraway offshore locations like India or China, getting to Costa Rica is simple and affordable. It typically takes between 2 1/2 and 5 hours to reach Costa Rica from the United States, depending on your departure location.

While there are more than 30 airports in Costa Rica, the largest and most frequently used airport in Costa Rica is the Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose. There are nonstop flights from Juan Santamaria International Airport (airport code for Juan Santamaria is SJO) to over 40 cities including Atlanta, Georgia, Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Dallas, Texas, Los Angeles, CA, New York City, and Denver, Colorado, to name a few. On a weekly basis, nearly 700 international flights depart from Juan Santamaria International Airport.
