The funds will be invested over a period of five years and they will be designated for projects such as sewer and restoration work, among others, in order to promote tourism in the city.

Karina Alpízar Corella writes in Prensalibre.cr: "The Limón Port foresees 17 different components related to five large themes: supporting harbor modernization and rehabilitation of the railroad; revitalizing cultural heritage; basic service projects for construction of sanitation and drainage; local economic development; and institutional strengthening at the municipal level."

The project for development of the area has a $ 72.5 million World Bank Loan and is significantly behind on its implementation.

Until today of the 18 components which make up the project, only 7 of them are current with all requirements.

The lack of progress in implementing the schedule leads to non-disbursement of the funds.
