Were you planning on sending money to Costa Rica? We’ve got good news for you!

We recently aligned with our sister company Ria Money Transfer, and we can now send our money transfers to Costa Rica through Ria’s channels. What does this mean for you? Several major improvements to your money transfer experience.

From now on, when you send money to Costa Rica, you can expect: 

  1. Much faster transfers

  2. New exchange rates

  3. No third-party fees.

What’s new when you send money to Costa Rica?

Haven’t sent money with Xe in the past? Need a quick reminder? Let’s take a quick look at what our money transfers to Costa Rica used to be like, before we introduced these recent changes. 

  • Your money would typically reach Costa Rica within 1-4 business days.

  • Your exchange rate depended on currency market motion.

  • You may have been charged additional fees from intermediaries in the transfer process. 

But that’s not the case anymore. Now, when you send money to Costa Rica, you can rely on the following:

  • Your money will arrive much sooner. No need to wait several days, or even several hours. With our new transfer channels, your money will reach Costa Rica in real time.

  • New, competitive rates. Our new transfers will give you fair, competitive rates for your coming exchanges, straight from the live currency markets.

  • No third-party fees. Now that we’re using our own channels to send you transfers, there won’t be any intermediaries involved. What does that mean? It means no extra fees hidden throughout the transfer process. What you see is what you get.
