The governor of Jalisco has announced a 30-year master development plan for the coastal region of the state known as Costalegre, just south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Speaking at an event Saturday at Chalacatepec beach, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez said that the plan will guarantee economic growth and development in the municipalities of Cabo Corrientes, Tomatlán, La Huerta and Cihuatlán during the next three decades.
A 3.8-billion-peso (US $200-million) highway linking Puerto Vallarta to the region will be the centerpiece of the plan, which will also include other infrastructure projects such as new schools and health clinics.
Construction of about 3,000 new hotel rooms — mainly five-star — will be permitted within an economic corridor that will urbanize just 1.7% of the 743,300 hectares that make up the Costalegre region, Alfaro said.
A governing body made up of members of civil society, state and municipal authorities, investors and experts will be responsible for drawing up the specific details of the development plan and implementing it, he explained.
