Via a press release, the Director of the Maritime and Port Authority, Guillermo Ruiz de Teresa, announced plans for the construction of a boardwalk (malecón) in San Blas, Riviera Nayarit. This will facilitate the development of nautical tourism and both recreational and sports activities and will spur economic growth.
He stated the work would commence next year and conclude in early 2016; it will incur an approximate investment of 100 million Mexican pesos.
Ruiz de Teresa also added the project includes a boardwalk and complementary structures, including four docks, a loading ramp and several sports installations such as a beach volleyball court and play areas.
The boardwalk will be located on the seafront extending from the Secretariat of the Navy (Semar) to the Fueling Dock along one side of the Fonatur building, which houses the offices of Mexico’s national trust for the promotion of tourism.
According to the Director of the Maritime and Port Authority, the boardwalk will be 300 meters long, 850 of which will be set aside for an 8-meter wide avenue, with 450 meters reserved as a pedestrian walkway.
