The Blue Wave Harmony, which is already anchored in the port of La Union in El Salvador, will depart on its first commercial operation to Puerto Caldera in Costa Rica on August 10.
Bukele highlighted this Friday the connectivity that the ferry initiative represents, something that, he said, will allow unity between both nations.
The route represents a bridge between the Costa Rican nation and El Salvador, and can mark the beginning for other initiatives to be carried out jointly, strengthening the bonds of brotherhood between the two countries, he said.
Thank you very much, President @RodrigoChavesR. Costa Rica and El Salvador will be more united with this great project, said the Salvadoran leader in a message on the social network X.
The president’s message came after his Costa Rican counterpart, Rodrigo Chaves, praised the ferry initiative between the two countries, which will allow a better flow of exports and mobilization between El Salvador and Costa Rica and help boost their economies.
The vessel is a passenger/roll-on roll-off vessel, with the capacity to transport 100 units with head hooked and unhooked cargo, between El Salvador and Costa Rica, according to a report from the Autonomous Port Executive Commission.
