Statement from Marina Flamingo Development Group
|The Mission of Marina Flamingo Development Group is to play a foundational role in making the Guanacaste Coast into the premier eutherian coastal community in all of the Americas. Our focus is to create a synergistic relationship between the environment, people and the local community by encouraging sustainable practices of eco-tourism. |
For the environment: Marina Flamingo is a socially and environmentally responsible project, aware of the importance of the ocean and the rich biodiversity of the Guanacaste Province. Our focus is the promotion of local ecotourism, the encouragement of sustainable economic practices and creating a vibrant community through proper environmental monitoring programs and social development projects.
For Safety: During this first phase, the initial actions that are being performed include pedestrian and traffic safety signaling, environmentally site preparation, estuary and ocean water quality testing. The concession site perimeter will be secured and access restricted. Our goal is to reduce human risk and accidents, avoid traffic incidents and provide a healthy ecosystem.
For the community: Marina Flamingo will be the heartbeat of the community. This development will allow our local entrepreneurs to showcase their skills, professionalism and the “pura vida” lifestyle of Costa Rica. The establishment of key alliances with the government and local organizations will ensure a dynamic community.
Community Update: As of October 8th, 2019, the project is approved with all environmental and construction permits for phase 1. This phase is critical to the project as it will cover the construction of break walls and dredging of the basin. The construction of this first phase will require long working shifts, substantial amounts of rock & material, and the constant presence of heavy machinery. We anticipate that this first phase will take approximately two years to be completed, by that time the community of Flamingo will have a state-of-the-art fully operational marina. Safety is our number one priority and for that there are several precautions necessary. First and foremost, we will need to take full control of the working site, in order to do so we will need to have the current ramp users vacate the space by November 20th, 2019. We will begin with our on-site works shortly after the site is under full control. After all these years we are proud to tell you that this project is now a reality. Our visitors and clients will have a safe and memorable experience at the Marina Flamingo The socioeconomic impact on our community will bring new opportunities for all of our entrepreneurs.
