About a year ago, the first touristic mega project along the lines of Cancun and Huatulco was announced for the Gulf coast along the fastest road from the border to Veracruz and southern Mexico:
Located on the coast, with Texas as its northern border, Tamaulipas will be home to ‘Megaproject Costa Lora,’ which in its first stage will be home to 6,900 hotel rooms and 11,500 condominiums and tourist villas. The federal government, through tourism arm Fonatur, has agreed to fund up to 90 percent of the $5.5 billion project.
About 100 miles south of Brownsville, Texas, in the municipality of Soto La Marina. Costa Lora will be the first beach resort of its kind near the U.S. border along the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to create about 115,000 jobs.
Mexico hopes the location appeals to foreign tourists looking for a relaxing Mexican getaway from the nearby American states of New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana. It also hopes to lure Mexican tourists from the nearby states of Nuevo León, Coahuila and San Luis Potosí.http://www.costalora.com/-English-.html
A year later, the involved government agencies are quibbling and accusing each other of delaying the project.
