The cost of living in Costa Rica increased by only 0.62% between December and May, the lowest increase in inflation in the last 32 years of keeping records.

If the behavior of prices in the past six months is maintained during the next six months, the country would enjoy an annual inflation of just 1.2%, well below the average growth in prices, around 10%, which had the country has seen in the last 27 years.

The numbers of the price consumer index were revealed by the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos (INEC).
