The President of Costa Rica attends the inauguration of Flamingo Marina:

The President of Costa Rica, Rodrigo Chaves, attended the inauguration of Flamingo Marina, in Guanacaste.

Chaves and his team were in the province of Guanacaste to take part in the annexation festivities. The President decided to take the opportunity to visit the new Marina.

This project should benefit the region and help stimulate the coastal economy. Also, it should be a major new attraction for tourists.

Flamingo Marina consists of three stages. This first stage, recently inaugurated, required an investment of nearly 50 million dollars. It also has tourist accommodation, a congress center and a desalination plant to draw water from the sea. This desalination plant will allow the seawater to be drinkable, thus avoiding any pressure on the area’s limited drinking water resources.

According to information provided at the event, the other two stages of the marina will be ready in 2024.

“This proposal satisfies me because it is based on three of the essential pillars of the Costa Rican economy:

  • The beauty of its nature
  • Its openness to the world
  • The wealth of his people

These pillars drive our country and enable it to penetrate today’s turbulent and changing markets,” said President Chaves Robles.

William Rodríguez, President of ICT, explained the importance of this project for the region, particularly in terms of job creation and the emphasis on environmental protection.

He explained that one of the most important aspects of the marina is its environmental commitment. For example, it is committed to protecting the Flamingo mangrove.

She also hopes to revitalize the coastal economy through direct and indirect employment. This will provide new opportunities for residents severely affected by the pandemic and currently unemployed.

“The Marina Flamingo is the sixth in the country. This strengthens opportunities for Costa Rica to expand the nautical tourism niche and compete with high-quality destinations in North America, Europe and the Caribbean,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez concluded that this marina will put the “country on the world map for yacht and superyacht owners, which will increase activities such as sport fishing, diving, and whale and dolphin watching.”
