Flamingo Beach to get new Coast Guard station
In an event organized by the Costa Rican government and the U.S. Embassy last Wednesday, the first stone was placed for the construction of a new Coast Guard in Flamingo, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste.
Located in front of the old Flamingo marina, the station was donated by the U.S. Southern Command and will be finished by November 2013.
The project will include dorms for Costa Rican Coast Guard officers, restrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, air conditioning and a floating dock, among other features.
Public Security Minister Mario Zamora, Costa Rican Coast Guard Director Martín Arias, U.S. Southern Command Rear Adm. Charles Michel, U.S. Ambassador Ann S. Andrew and Santa Cruz Mayor Jorge Chavarria attended last week’s ceremony.
