The best soil lab for crops is ISA (Instituto Superior de Agricultura) in Herradura Santiago.
Highway to San José de las Matas, left side about 10-12 minutes across the bridge in Santiago.
Soil lab is the first building on you right as you enter..

What kind of analysis?

Jasper,

Do you want the soil to be tested for its chemical components (for agricultural related issues) or a core sample for building support issues?

The former HB provided and the latter I may be able to help you with if I can find their number.
