Central America’s First Crystalline Lagoon Advances at Costa Rica’s NYA Megaproject

1 April, 2024 / News

Costa Rica, known for its focus on sustainable tourism and impressive biodiversity, is reaching a milestone with the first crystalline lagoon in Central America. This amenity, developed with sustainable Crystal Lagoons® technology, features 6 acres of turquoise waters suitable for swimming and water sports, surrounded by white sandy beaches, and is the centerpiece of the NYA megaproject in the Guanacaste region.

John Scheman, president and founder of Nya, highlights this project for its positive economic impact on the region: “The introduction of Crystal Lagoons® technology in Costa Rica represents a significant milestone in our efforts to promote sustainable tourism and offer unforgettable experiences for those visiting our shores.”

This project also stands out as the first complex in Costa Rica under the Public Access Lagoons™ model, also known as PAL™ developments. A recent article in Revista Summa highlighted it for its social contribution and boost to the area’s tourism development.

Nya is a development targeted towards retirees from the United States and high-net-worth Costa Ricans. It is located in the Guanacaste region and extends over 2,224 acres, just 25 miles from the Pacific coast and five minutes from Daniel Oduber International Airport. Crystal Lagoons will bring idyllic beach life to this inland area of the Costa Rican province, contributing to the revaluation of the area. The public access complex is estimated to attract more than 1 million visitors annually. Also, this project is part of the exclusivity agreement with the conglomerate Blue Water Ventures for complexes in Costa Rica and Guatemala.

PAL™ projects, which anyone can access for an entrance fee, have set a new standard in public gathering and entertainment spaces and have positioned themselves as revolutionary alternatives with a high social impact. Transform any site into a year-round entertainment hub with more than 125 activities that can take place in the lagoon itself or its surroundings. These include water sports with and without an engine, inflatable parks, trade shows, dining, weddings, beach parties, concerts, flow boarding, quatrefoil, cable parks, paddleboard yoga, water slides, cliff jumping, mapping shows, water light shows, water curtain animation, outdoor cinema, corporate events, floating cabanas, etc.
