The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Mayor Luis Gerardo Diaz of Liberia confirmed that the Disney corporation is taking steps to build one of their theme parks in the Llano Grande, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The land is about 7,000 acres and would be located south of the airport.
Diaz said that Disney already bought the land and they are now in negotiations to obtain building permits, environmental permits, and others licenses. The official said they are waiting for a meeting with the politicians of the entertainment giant, because the original meeting in September was rescheduled.
According to Diaz, the company will begin building in January or February of next year. Disney has not issued a press release on this topic.
“I see it as a positive outlook, because they already have the land. Like good entrepreneurs they have been planning. Some companies come in one day and are suspended months later. I know that for the first months of 2014, they are all coming here. They will have to cater to local entrepreneurs and meet with engineers for building permits, urban development, and to analyze the future,” foresaw the Mayor.
The Mayor said that Liberian coordinated with Disney, to begin defining how engineers and professionals provide the Municipality for the process. Luis Gerardo Diaz fears no problem and ensured that his staff will work overtime to process permits and studies required for construction.
He also stressed that the future park could attract not only employment for Guanacaste, but much more tourism from neighboring countries who will choose Costa Rica, instead of traveling to Disney headquarters in the United States.
