Foreign entrepreneurs lost interest in their luxurious Marina de Golfito and left the country. They have taken the necessary steps for the concession to be available to other entrepreneurs.
The National Bank financed 70% of the investment. National businessmen seek to assume the administration of the complex that has a $50 million investment and consists of a berth for yachts, restaurant, bar, gym, cafeteria, sports fishing business and five commercial stores for those with high purchasing power.
The closure of the luxury tourist complex left 40 unemployed and put the hopes of 400 jobs being created on hold. The mayor of the zone explained that there is a possibility that it will be taken over in the next 90 days and reopened by the end of the year.
It is assumed that part of the reason the investors left and did not come back has to due with the fact that Golfito is far from everything including the international airports so many forign tourists prefer to stay in other areas.
