Tourism will be boosted by public investment in El Salvador

The government is making progress in investing in public works to boost tourism and the national economy, taking into account that these are the first two of a total of 10 Economic Impulses that President Nayib Bukele announced in February of this year.

Road to Surf City, the Amusement Park and the overpass at the traffic circle in the Utila neighborhood are the works being executed in La Libertad, the most visible in these areas.

In that sense, in order to maintain the economic growth results of 2021, this year the Government, through the Ministry of Public Works (MOP), plans to invest around $1,510 million in public works, being tourism the most benefited.

Last February, the head of the MOP, Romeo Rodríguez, and the Minister of Tourism, Morena Valdez, began the construction of tourist infrastructure in Camino a Surf City, which consists of viewpoints, trails, commercial area, restaurants, parking, amphitheater, so that users can enjoy the beautiful views of the beaches of La Libertad.

The improvements announced by the Executive Branch include an Amusement Park, part of a project to transform the Tourist Complex of the port of Libertad, where mechanical games are being installed and other works are being carried out.

In addition, work on the lookout point is progressing, with an investment of $2.5 million. The project will benefit 85,235 inhabitants of the port of La Libertad, motorists and visitors to the port area.

Likewise, Camino a Surf City is a 6.5 kilometer road, inaugurated in 2021 and is a symbol of the work that since the beginning of the Bukele administration has been developed for tourism and the advancement of road infrastructure works that benefit the population.

On the other hand, progress is being made on the Utila traffic circle overpass, which will improve traffic on the road to the port of La Libertad.
