The design of the new facility will be different from what is currently inside the Hotel Wyndhan Herradura in Belén de Heredia, retaining only the stage for musical performances.
They are planning a beach concept for the restaurant that fits in with the area and franchise. The building is 650 square meters between two floors, one of them accommodating offices and warehouses and the other is the restaurant, which has a capacity of 170 people. They expect to hire about 44 people once the construction is complete.
“Playas del Coco is certainly the area that has the most international recognition for being the closest beach to the airport. We also considered Tamarindo, but the problem is seasonality, which is very pronounced in low season; most restaurants close their doors. In Playas del Coco we have a national clientele that not only lives in that canton but it’s also close to Liberia where there are large populations, allowing us to remain open,” said Araya.
