Villa Neily got advantage because of the construction of the Carretera Interamericana (Interamerican Highway) and because of the fact that the Compañía Bananera came to the zone. Due to the fact that the population was increased between the years of 1939 and 1940, a foreign man who came from Libia, named Ricardo Neily Job bought a huge property of this region and settled down a commercial activity that could be compared with a comisariato (little supermarket where you can find everything) that could be helping and satisfying the needs of people who worked in the Compañía Bananera (Company of the bananas production). Then, he sold some of his lands to some people were dedicated to the commercial business and who opened and started their business in the region.

In this way, Villa Neily ariso like an entertainment center for those that worked in the Compañía Bananera and in other bananas activities located in Golfito. After that, in the year of 1945 the activities of the Compañía Bananera began to take place in the Valle de Coto what helped to increase directly the commercial and housing development of the zone. Today, Villa Neily is an active commercial center that is able to satisfy all the principal needs of the inhabitants.
