Bahamas and Honduras finished first and second in pool B and were promoted to Group II after winning their play-off matches against Paraguay and Costa Rica, the top two teams from pool A.
Bahamas, with a perfect record in group play, beat host nation Costa Rica 2-1, while Honduras won 2-0 over Paraguay, who were hoping for an immediate return to Group II.
Bermuda made their Davis Cup debut in 1997 but have never played higher than Group III.
