Guatemala: Puerto Champerico Construction to be Ready in July

Inauguration of the renovated Champerico port on Guatemala’s Pacific is scheduled for this coming July 15.

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

The construction of the dock and three piers, with a cost of $31 million, was designed especially for tourism and small and semi-industrial fishing.

Prensalibre.com reported statements by Luis Prado, president of Champerico Port: "This renovation will help the local economy, which was abandoned by both the municipality and the department of Retalhuleu, to rebound again. In the medium term, the port will be used to transport merchandise or for coastal trading, i.e. short trips by sea from Champerico to Quetzal Port and to other ports in Central America."
