From the study "General Mapping of Finland", prepared by Procomer Costa Rica: 

Finland is the 13th economy of the European Union (GDP $251.176 mm, 2016, 5 times that of CR). It is recognized as the 3rd least corrupt state in the world, for its highly educated population (100% literacy) and also is highlighted in various indexes related to competitiveness, and innovation among other things.

It has a low population density (18 inhabitants / km2), a structure by age of more older adults than CR (21% +65 years vs. CR 9%), and in general a population with high purchasing power, which makes it prone to higher spending on leisure and recreation (11% vs. 2% CR of total spending up to 2016).
