“Water has always been a fundamental good for the quality of life of all people, but in the pandemic context in which we find ourselves, access to liquid becomes more important. For this reason, we work hard to make it timely for everyone, not only in Guanacaste, but throughout the country,” said the First Lady, Claudia Dobles, coordinator of the Chorotega Region.

For his part, the Executive President of AyA, Tomás Martínez, highlighted the institution’s commitment to guarantee that the province has access to the water necessary to maintain the growth that had been registered prior to the pandemic, and that it is estimated that it will again gain strength. as of 2022.

The announcement was made on Friday during President Carlos Alvarado and the First Lady visit the Guanacaste region ahead of the celebrations of the 25th, Guanacaste Day, celebrating Costa Rica’s annexation of the Guanacaste province in 1824.
