Ferry service suspended seven days for dredging

Ferry service to and from Paquera and Playa Naranjo on the Nicoya peninsula will be suspended for seven days starting Wednesday while government officials dredge the areas around the ferry dock in Puntarenas.

The División Marítimo Portuaria of the transport ministry said that some 15,000 cubic meters of sand have to be removed. That is nearly 20,000 cubic yards.

Those traveling to and from the peninsula can still use the Puente de la Amistad over the Río Tempisque, said the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.
