    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The first freshwater beach in Costa Rica at the Laguna del Arenal is already well on track to become reality. The Chamber of Tourism in the Northern Zone (Catuzón) has reached an agreement with the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) to allow the establishment of this area.

    The agreement was reached late last year and the project, which aims to reinvigorate tourism in this area which will begin to take shape later this year.

    The lake will be promoted both internationally and locally for all aquatic events in the area. There will be picnic areas, docks, and pavilions available.

    The investment cost of the entire project is around $3 million and will be financed by different means.

    Although it’s still very preliminary, blueprints are already being submitted which must be approved by ICE to go on to phase two.

    Funding will be sought with international groups and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). For this, the promoters of the project must be endorsed by the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) and ICE.

    “The idea is that by the end of this year and we are under construction. We have an income of 250 000 people per year to the lake and there is not even a health service,” said Leovigild Villegas, president of Catuzón.

    Last September, Villegas also said the new attraction would partly solve occupational problems in the area. “With a project of this level, we would have 20% more tourist arrivals in this area, which would equal 525,000 more people annually.”
