Investment Expectations Fueling Construction in Limón

Costa Rica's Caribbean, for many years left behind in the country's construction boom, is now taking the lead.

Monday, July 20, 2009

The province of Limón still doesn't have construction figures similar to those shown by Guanacaste or San José before the crisis, nor construction activity is higher there than in other regions of the country. What is remarkable is that while the sector experiences negative growth in the rest of the country, new buildings in Limón increased 11% during the first four months of 2009, which means 73% more square meters built than in 2008.

An article in lists some of the projects that are stimulating construction: "new works at the ports concessions, private proposals for widening route 32, a coast to coast train, a transference mega port and the $80 million loan already approved by the World Bank for the project 'Limón Ciudad Puerto'".
