According to ICT statistics,  cruise ship arrivals have dropped 30% between 2008 and 2013.

“Since the beginning of this administration, we have visualized cruise ship tourism as a spearhead for tourism growth…” said von Breymann.

The ICT committee conducted this week the first seminar on cruises, and along with the Costa Rican Association of Cruise Industry ( Asociación Costarricense de Industria de Cruceros – ACIC), the goal of is to analyze the state of the industry and evaluate the actions to implement to attract more cruiseliners.

The ICT is also participating in a number of trade fairs, like the international cruise trade show – Cruise Shipping Miami – last March that took place last March and is working with the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA), a not-for-profit trade organization composed of 15 member cruise lines operating more than 100 vessels.

The tourism board is also working on an agreement with the Junta de Administración Portuaria y Desarrollo Económico de la Vertiente Atlántica (Japdeva) to remodel the port infrastructure in Limón.
