If you’re thinking of working in Central America, it’s best to begin your search after you’ve arrived there. Very few positions are advertised on the internet and in local papers. It’s best to visit the school well-dressed and with your resume in hand. While salaries aren’t going to make you rich, you’ll enjoy a nice standard of living in relation to local standards. Costa Rica offers some of the higher salaries in the region as demand for teachers there is higher than elsewhere in Central America.
