Costa Rican Tourism Industry (ICT) had invested in signs of dangerous beaches and two new information offices, one in San Jose Center and another in the new air terminal of the Daniel Oduber Quirós international airport in Liberia.
As part of the follow-up and the work carried out to ensure a successful travel experience for the national and foreign tourists, the Costa Rican Institute of tourism reinforces various services for visitors.
This is the case of the second stage of marking of dangerous beaches. This program started three years ago with the goal of placing visible signs to inform tourists about the presence of dangerous currents, investing approximately 80 million colones since its inception.
Minister of tourism, Allan Flores, said efforts are intended to offer to the tourist information mechanisms that improve your stay in the country and even freed them from any bad experience or accident.
Besides water current signs, Costa Rica also works on improvement of main roads that lead to various beach properties in the country. San José-Caldera, main road that links the capital city with the Central Pacific, where Costa Developers projects are nestled, is one of the best signalized roads. This road was inaugurated on January 2011.
During the first stage a total of 41 coastal sectors, which will be added to 17 sites of this second phase, covering the country. The signals were located in Playa Bejuco, beach flag, Playa Matapalo, Manuel Antonio, Playa Barú, Playa Blanca, Playa Junquillal, Playa Ventanas, Playa Camaronal, Playa Carrillo, Playa Cangrejal, Playa Garza, Playa Guiones, Playa Ostional, Playa Avellanas, Playa Naranjo and Playa Carrillo.
Flores argues that this service represents a main concern for the institution, therefore the need of this investment to provide a tool to alert about the presence of dangerous currents, strong waves and represent a danger for tourists. Also, visitors will have a brochure which offers advices to swimmers and people who come to surf as well.
Improving tourism services is a main issue to the government, many visitors end up later coming back to the country to establish their companies in the country or to possibly invest in real estate or property in Costa Rica.
Costa Rica receives more than 2 million tourists annually, mostly from the United States and Canada, there is also a big visitor’s population from Latin America.
