New Bridge Between Nicaragua and Costa Rica
With cooperation from the Japanese government, the construction of a new bridge between the towns of Santa Fe and Las Tablillas is being planned in order to integrate both areas.

The Director of Immigration in Costa Rica, Mario Zamora, explained to Elnuevodiario.com.ni: "This would give many advantages to Nicaraguan exporters because they would not have to go through the Central Valley. From Las Tablillas, there is a route that connects to Sarapiquí and then to the port in Limón. This is important because the area would also become a place for more fluid commercial interchange between the border communities."
The Santa Fe Bridge, built in Nicaragua over the San Juan River, 5 kilometers from the border with Costa Rica, will not be opened as long as the confrontation between the two governments continues.
The $30 million bridge over the San Juan river will be 260 meters long.
A $15 million donation by the Japanese Government will be used to design the "Santa Fe" bridge over River San Juan.
The border post to be opened by the government of Costa Rica in early 2015 in Las Tablillas will be used temporarily, until the permanent post has been built.
