New Signs to Direct Tourists in Costa Rica
More signs will soon be going up around the country to point tourists to their estinations, thanks to a joint initiative of the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) and the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MOPT).
The signs and their installation will cost nearly $580,000, according to a statement from the institute. Of that amount, the ICT will be chipping in $380,000 for the materials, while MOPT will cover the cost of design and installation.
The signs will point the way to tourist destinations and popular beaches, as well as ferries, airports, ports and national parks.
The project involves creating a total of 1,203 signs, including a series along Route 32 between San José and the Caribbean port of Limón, and a series along the Inter-American Highway from the western Central Valley coffee town of San Ramón north to Peñas Blancas, on the Nicaraguan border.
