Friday, January 27, 2017

The announcement of the possible construction of a coastal highway in the Pacific, represents an opportunity for entrepreneurs in the tourism sector to further enhance the development of tourism in the area and also provide a route for foreign tourists arriving at the Liberia airport in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

"... In order to do that, what is needed, according to the National Chamber of Tourism of Nicaragua (Canatur), is a tourist outpost in the community of El Naranjo, south of Rivas, which would increase tourist flows."  The president of Canatur, Lucy Valenti, told " 'We have suggested setting up a border post because of all the problems seen in Penas Blancas, and very near to El Naranjo we have Liberia airport, which receives about one million tourists a year.'"

"... The Costanera is a catalyst for the tourism industry agrees Leonardo Torres, president of the Nicaraguan Chamber of Small and Medium Tourist Companies (Cantur), because with the implementation of this project the electricity distribution service will be improved, as well as telephone services and boosting of private investment along the road."
