Costa Rica to Get $400 Million Casino

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Central America is getting a new land casino nine years down the road when the Casino City Caribe opens its doors in Moin.

The project is expected to run $400 million and will see three different casinos and hotels built, with 264 rooms in the project being constructed. Additionally, there will be 219 apartments, two convention centers, a business center, and a spa built. The properties will be close to the beach, and a marina will be built to help with traffic from visitors that cruise the Caribbean.

The project is still in the planning stages, but the project has gained the approval needed to move forward when it reaches that stage. The project is expected to create 150 jobs in the initial phase, but more than 1,500 will be employed when the project is finished.

Costa Rica receives millions of visitors annually, with tourists flocking to see the beaches, rainforests, and cities such as San Jose.

We'll be following this story and updating readers as we learn more about the property.

Obviously a huge project, I guess the US tourists would be the main reason for building of the casino.
As far as I know many there's a good number of Us citizens owing a houses in Cost Rica which also helps the local economic I guess.
