The first ferry service between El Salvador and Costa Rica will start in July between La Union and Caldera ports.
Sebastian Urbina, deputy transport minister, confirmed that the first service is scheduled to start the July, 17th, reaching the Costa Rican port a day later.
The goal is to reduce the cost on the movement of goods between the two countries. It is estimated that the journey will take approximately 16 hours.
The ferry will depart from El Salvador on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and from Costa Rica on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
