QCOSTARICA – The Legislative Commission analyzingthe problems of Puntarenas, is proposing a bill that seeks to reduce the fee charged by the Municipality of Esparza to tourists arriving on cruises to Puerto Caldera, from $3 to $1.50.

Last year 20 cruise ships arrived in Caldera, in many cases because other ports, where a lower fee is charged, they were busy.

The idea according to legislator for the Partido Liberacion Nacional (PLN) Karla Prendas, is to attract more tourists and thus achieve greater dockings.

This initiative will pass to the Legislative Assembly for approval.
