As the deputy, Paz wants to immediately focus on the beaches of San Pedro, making them more attractive to tourists. Paz also wants to implement bilingual advertisement in order to attract visitors from our neighboring countries, especially during the slow season. “I want to implement the tourism strategy and really go after our marketing plan; we want to raise tourism during the slow season so we want to have different programs to attract visitors during the slower months.” The SPTC wants to encourage cultural tourism by heavily promoting our festival such as “Dia de San Pedro” and “Lobster Fest”.
