Almost 2 years ago the tourism industry warned the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC) on the problem of overpopulation of crocodiles.
A letter dated July 24th, 2014 stated that
the domestic tourism sector is requesting is a quick solution before a tragedy takes place.”
Today, after the incident with a foreigner in Tamarindo beach, the Costa Rican Hotels Chamber is still waiting for an answer.
It was not the only time I decided to send this kind of information and, to our misfortune, from the first time I tried to communicate with the respective authorities, there was no response,”
lamented Gustavo Araya, president of the chamber.
Araya added that although such events affect the activity of the sector, what is really important is to understand that the health and physical integrity of both domestic and foreign people is at risk.
It is an aspect that cannot be downplayed or ignored as it has happened until today,”
said Araya, who hopes the event opens the government eyes, so that the necessary steps to provide security for the population are taken.
