Costa Rica Water Concessions

Water is an essential resource for life, as well as for the development of
activities, works, and projects generating positive progress for the country’s welfare and development and its inhabitants.

In Costa Rica, water is the State’s property, and it is in the public domain. For this reason, the Ministry of Environment and Energy (MINAE), through the Water Directorate (DA), is the body in charge of safeguarding the water resource. The MINAE does this through integrated and sustainable management of the resource, guaranteeing its availability in quantity and quality necessary for the development that presents the country according to your needs.
