$2.8million-plus in national park upgrades


By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

On Tuesday, the government announced the plan to spend more than $2.8 million in infrastructure improvements to boost tourism for national parks located in the southern zone of the country.

"Investments in infrastructure will promote more visits to the entire South Pacific region," Franklin Paniagua, Vice Minister of the Environment said.

Upgrade construction, scheduled to finish in February 2022, include bathrooms, lodge modules for park rangers, a visitor center and shelters for visitors.

The national parks getting improvements are: Marino Ballena, Corcovado, Piedras Blancas, La Amistad and Vida Silvestre Golfito, all located in the southern part of Puntarenas Province.

The Regional Development Board of the South Zone is helping fund the work, added the government in their statement.



To preserve the country's wild protected zones, the government announced last week the new rule to ban the use of plastic in national parks.

The new order states that people cannot enter or use disposable plastic products in the parks starting Thursday, Feb. 25. No plastic straws, glasses, food containers, plates, bags, plastic bottles, food wrappers, among others.

The order applies to visitors, researchers and park employees. Expect park rangers to confiscate any plastic products from people failing to comply with the order.

According to the government, the ban on the use of plastic inside the parks is a response to the Decarbonization Plan that has the goal of turning Costa Rica into a green economy with zero net emissions by 2050.
