For four days La Mansion owner and Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Tourism President Harry Bodaan hosted the Emmy Award Winning Production Crew of America Mia from Miami, and Central America Destination Specialist agent from LATOUR Susan Schuetze who were invited to our area to help promote the Canton de Aguirre abroad through a special film shoot. This project was made possible in part through the assistance of the Costa Rican Tourism Ministry with the purpose of attracting more tourists to our area. Visits included many of the areas day-time and night-time attractions including several area restaurants. “I am very content with this effort which will hopefully help the economy of our area and is part of the Chamber’s goal to increase the living standard in the Canton de Aguirre. Any free and unbiased coverage that we can get to show the world the spectacular beauty of our local Flora, Fauna and the warmth of the Costa Rican people is very much welcomed”, said Bodaan. The 4-day visit was concluded with a private dinner consisting of typical Costa Rican culinary delicacies including fresh caught Pacific lobster, Sea scallops and local artisan vegetables.
