Neily was founded in 1946, originally being a small dispersed hamlet, for which reason it had a category of villa.

In its economic and demographic development, the area benefited from the construction of the Inter-American Highway and the arrival in Golfito of the United Fruit Company; As a result of the increase in the population, between 1939 and 1940 an immigrant of Lebanese origin, Ricardo Neilly Jop, acquired extensive property in the region and set up a kind of commissary at the service of banana workers. He then sold a series of parcels to merchants who established their businesses in the region. In this way, Villa Neilly emerged as an entertainment center for the banana workers of the farms located in Golfito. Subsequently, the Banana Company in 1945 began to farm in the Coto Valley, directly promoting commercial and housing development in the area.
