During the last Conference Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA), held in late October in the Dominican Republic, tourism authorities agreed not to set high taxes on cruise ships and in turn cruise lines will develop itineraries.
The Port of Amapala could become a shipping center for cruise passengers, said the Honduran Minister of Tourism.
A proposed cruise port in Amador, Panama, could also serve to supply bunker fuel for ships.
Cruise operators have informed the government of Panama about their interest in investing $30 million in order to build a cruise terminal on the Amador Causeway.
The third terminal port on the Pacific is to be built in an area of 112 hectares. Companies such as APL from Singapore, Cosco from China and Evergreen from Taiwan have been invited to participate.
