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.
