President Solis provided 250 million colones through Judesur to rebuild and improve the infrastructure of 5 national parks located in the Costa Rican South Pacific. The president paid a visit to some southern areas of the country.
That money is only a part of 1700 million colones invested to construct the bridges, pathways, network cabling and administrative offices of the Ballena National Marine Park, Corcovado National Park, La Amistad International Park, Golfito Wildlife Refuge and Piedras Blancas National Park.
This investment will go to the first stage of the project which will be focused on the design and feasibility of 48 other programs.
“Today, we’ve started the execution of this project that will improve the image of our Southern national parks. This investment will also improve the quality of life of many of our ranger stations”. – said First Lady Mercedes Peñas.
