Port Information

The main ports of Costa Rica are the Port of San José and the Port of Moín. On arrival, all goods will have to undergo customs clearance which will be handled with the help of our agents in Costa Rica. Once cleared you can collect directly from our warehouse or we can arrange onward delivery to most destinations, including San José, Puerto Limón, San Francisco, Alajuela, Liberia, Paraíso, Puntarenas, San Isidro, Curridabat, San Vicente and more. Further information on customs clearance and documentation for imports to Costa Rica is available here.

Real customer reviews

Simply the best! Highly recommend 1st Move International, outstanding service. I had a large shipment of all my worldly goods to SA of which many items were very fragile. The packaging was so amazing not a single item was broken. And the communication was excellent all the way. Thank you to all at the company.

We have used 1st Move International over the past five years and never had a concern. The service we have received has encouraged us to give 1st Move International's details to all our friends

Everything about 1st Move itself was excellent - they were efficient, courteous, very responsive to all my concerns and very straightforward to deal with.

These guys are the best, superb service and amazing packing skills, everything arrived safely and not a scratch or broken glass in sight.
