Today was another jubilant day as I was able to speak in front of my country men and women with the government agencies, along with the first lady Costa Rica, Mercedes Pena Domingo. My proposal was for tourist development of, Cartago, Costa Rica and it was well accepted and ready to move forward!
I am a strong advocate of preserving our land to it's Eco-friendly resources, as well as creating enjoyable and memorable tours for our guest who visit my country. Cartago is a city in Costa Rica, about 25 km (16 mi) east of the capital, San José. It is at an elevation of about 1435 m (some 4,707 ft) above sea level, at the base of the Irazú Volcano. Cartago is the capital of Cartago province, and was the capital of Costa Rica from 1574 to 1824. The city covers an area of 152,68 km². It includes the districts of city downtown: Oriental, Occidental (known as the typical downtown area), San Nicolás (the main entrance to the city, at west), El Carmen (north), Dulce Nombre, San Francisco (at south, San Francisco is known commonly as Aguacaliente), and Guadalupe (Arenilla). The city is part, with the cities of San Rafael de Oreamuno and Tejar del Guarco, of a continuous urban area that, in 2008, had a population of 156,600 inhabitants, according to the Statistics and Census Institute of Costa Rica.
