Tumbes, Jul. 31 (ANDINA).
Authorities in Contralmirante Villar, located in Peru's northern-most Tumbes region, will build tourist boulevards spanning the province's beach strip, which has become a popular attraction for visitors.
With a view to take advantage of the beaches and the hotel construction boom in this city, Mayor Edward Tito de Lama said his office wants to turn the human settlements into new tourist destinations.
To that end, a 180 meter boulevard was built in the human settlement of Jose Faustino Sanchez Carrion, with an investment of 420,000 soles.
Water fountains, green spaces, pergolas and sea access roads were built in the area.
The mayor announced that the third stage of the construction of more boulevards will be complete by late 2011, right before the summer season.
