Proposed Development Creates Buzz in Carrillo

April 13, 2007

A proposed mega-project hopes to bring 5- and 6-star hotels, a professional golf course and luxury condos and homes to the small Pacific coast town of Carrillo in the northwestern province of Guanacaste.

In a meeting last month with municipal, church, community and business officials in the region, the development’s promotions representative, José Jiménez, explained the development would be co-funded by Madison Partners, of the United States, and Novita Capital, of Costa Rica.

The development would involve 600 hectares of beachfront land, and transform the beachfront road into a pedestrian boulevard with access to public services, restaurants, Internet and parking. It would also employ an estimated 2,000 people, according to a recent report in the daily La Nación.

Juan Marín, Mayor of the Municipality of Hojancha, told the daily that beginning in June, area residents would begin courses in English and other skills applicable to the service industry, allowing them to fully benefit from the new opportunities.
