Costa Rican cableway faces opposition

Tuesday, March 7, 2017


The Costa Rican municipality of Pérez Zeledón, south of San José, approved an initiative to promote the construction of a cableway to Chirripó, Costa Rica’s highest peak. The project, however, is already facing opposition.

The city council unanimously approved the motion in late February, with the aim of increasing tourist visitation to the canton. Mayor Jeffrey Montoya Rodríguez told The Tico Times that the vote represents the first step of the project, which he estimates would cost some $20 million.
