Data is available and downloadable in tabular data format. They have a copyright notice. Besides the "open data portal", INEC has another data tabulated in different parts of the site available for download in Excel format (http://www.inec.go.cr/Web/Home/pagPrincipal.aspx). And they have a system to tabulate your own data from surveys http://www.inec.go.cr/Web/Home/GeneradorPagina.aspx. They also have a microdata site when the databases of some of the surveys they make are available for download http://www.inec.go.cr/anda4/index.php/catalog. Nevertheless, the surveys are in .sav format (SPSS format).
