The most recent cruise ship season at the Caribbean port of Limón officially ended Friday with a total of 107 cruise ship arrivals from October to March, a nearly 60 percent increase over the previous season, the Atlantic Port Authority's (JAPDEVA) reported.
Costa Rica's Caribbean port of Limón attracted nearly 60 cruise ships in the first few months of the season. The government hopes the port's recent designation as a boarding spot will boost the industry.
More than 1,500 dockworkers affiliated with the union SINTRAJAP went on strike for 16 days, yet the Atlantic Port Authority's (JAPDEVA) board of directors on Wednesday voted to pay them full wages for their time away from the job. In response, the Libertarian Movement Party's top lawmaker, Otto Guevara, on Thursday filed a criminal complaint alleging embezzlement against JAPDEVA’s Executive President Anne McKinley and other top officials at the agency.
