Costa Rica President Carlos Alvarado decided to cancel the visit to Puntarenas that he had planned for this Saturday, Casa Presidencial confirmed the morning on Friday.

The President had assured all week that he would be Puntarenas this weekend, despite the issue with fishermen who a week earlier stormed Government House in Zapote.

The Presidency did not delve into the reasons why the visit was canceled but coincides two days after representatives of the fishing sector claimed that they were left “defrauded” after a meeting with President Alvarado on Wednesday.
