Pacific Coast Highway Progress

At a November 14 meeting, Mario Salinas, an architect and former Nicaraguan Minister of Tourism, presented the latest progress on the coastal highway project, known as La Costanera. About 60 developers, real estate professionals and other business people attended.

La Costanera will be a paved road stretching from Montelimar in the north to the Costa Rican border to the south, a total of approximately 131.5 kilometers running close to the coast line, following most of the existing dirt road. It is divided into three sectors:

  • Costa Rica to San Juan del Sur, 37 km
  • San Juan del Sur to El Astillero, 32 km
  • El Astillero to Pochomil, 63 km
