According to data supplied by the company to the Government in 1938, of a total of 7,378 workers in the Pacific, 1,427 were Central Americans. Among the foreigners were Hondurans, Chiricanos, North Americans, but most were Nicaraguan. In 1950, 15 % of Osa, Golfito and Aguirre’s population came from Nicaragua (5,572 Nicaraguans). These were in turn, 77.45 % of the foreigners residing in the zone (Cerdas; 1993: 152).

These data confirm the genetic and cultural heredity of Guanacastecos and Nicaraguans in the configuration of the canton of Osa and the southern banana plantations in general.
