Expected for many years, the construction of the Flamingo Marina was finally begun in December 2019! In October 2019, the project was approved with all environmental and construction permits for Phase 1. The developer has begun construction on a new world-class full-service Marina and Marina Village Resort development in Playa Flamingo. The development will include 175 wet slips along with a dry boat storage facility and two mixed-use retail and residential buildings totaling more than 15,000 m2. An oceanfront land parcel is also being created for a future hotel resort development totaling 25,000 m2/6.2 acres.
Flamingo Marina is a socially and environmentally responsible development. It will be the heartbeat of the local community and this development will allow the local entrepreneurs to showcase their skills. The establishment of key alliances and regular collaboration with the government and local organizations will ensure a dynamic community.
As many in the local area have now experienced, the infrastructure phase is now in progress. This phase requires long working shifts, the use of heavy machinery and the transportation of substantial amounts of rock & material to the site. This first phase will take approximately two years to complete after which time the community of Flamingo will have a state-of-the-art fully operational marina. The work is part of Phase 1 of the marina, which includes building 140 docking points and a building with apartments and commercial space. Phase 1 is scheduled to conclude at the end of 2021. The socioeconomic impact to the Playa Flamingo community and the entire Guanacaste region will bring many exciting new opportunities for growth.
