The Nicaraguan government will launch construction of the Costañera del Pacífico highway in the next few weeks to boost the country’s tourism sector, vice president and first lady Rosario Murillo told reporters.

La Costañera Carretera Nicaragua

The 131km highway will stretch from the northern to the southern border of the country, helping connect main tourist areas located along Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, such as the beach resorts of San Juan del Sur, El Naranjo, Ostional, El Coco, La Flor, Marsella, Las Maderas, Majagual, Guacalito de la Isla, El Gigante, Tupilapa, Huehuete, Casares, La Boquita and Masachapa.

All the details regarding investments and providers, as well as the duration of the project, will be disclosed soon by President Daniel Ortega, local press reported.

“We will begin to work on the first stretch of the highway within the next few weeks,” Murillo said. “This project will help us attract investment, create more jobs, and improve the wellbeing of Nicaraguan families.”


The project to build a highway along Nicaragua’s Pacific coast dates back to the administration of former president Enrique Bolaños in the early 2000s, according to local daily El Nuevo Diario.

During its first term, the Ortega administration was planning to award a 20-year concession to build and operate the highway to an Italian consortium. At the time, the estimated investment for the project was US$200mn, according to the paper.

Back in October, after congress approved a law to regulate public-private partnership contracts, the government presented a list of projects worth US$5.2bn that it said would be prioritized for investment, including the Costanera highway.

The list is part of a 2017-2021 investment and development program, which the government presented to local and international investors, foreign governments, and financial institutions.
