Construction on Marina To Begin in Quepos

March 24, 2006

The first phase of construction on a 200-slip, $13.5 million marina in the central Pacific coast town of Quepos is scheduled to begin in May, the daily La República reported this week.

The company Marina Pez Vela, in charge of the new marina, chose Quepos because of its tourist attractions and sport fishing, the daily reported.

The marina, scheduled to open in five years, is expected to create 1,000 jobs, and the canton of Aguirre, where Quepos is located, has already begun plans for training centers and infrastructure improvements near the marina.
