Méndez Nuñez lauds transfer of Seven Seas resort to municipality

Rep. Carlos “Johnny” Méndez Nuñez said Thursday that the transfer of the administration of the Seven Seas resort to the municipality of Fajardo will bring a sustained economic breakthrough for that region, including the Las Croabas sector, where the spa is located.


“For us it is very important to promote economic development in municipalities, particularly in sectors with potential for the creation of new jobs and businesses such as spas,” the New Progressive Party minority leader in the island House of Representatives said. “Since 2019 we have worked to achieve the transfer of the facilities of the Seven Seas resort to the Municipality of Fajardo with the purpose of promoting its conceptualization as an axis of economic activity, focused on tourism.”


On Tuesday, Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia, along with Natural and Environmental Resources Secretary Anaís Rodríguez Vega and Fajardo Mayor José Aníbal “Joey” Meléndez, signed an agreement for the transfer of the Seven Seas spa facilities, including parking, the camping area, the mobile home area and concessionaires.


“I have no doubt that the municipal administration of Fajardo will know very well how to take advantage of this opportunity not only to continue its unstoppable economic development agenda, but also to promote the creation of new microenterprises, a new business ecosystem in the area of the spa, Las Croabas, and the area of Las Cabezas de San Juan, with a strategy of reinvesting in infrastructure in all areas,” said Méndez, the representative for District 36 (Río Grande, Luquillo, Fajardo, Ceiba, Vieques and Culebra).


The central government announced the process of transferring Seven Seas to the municipality last year.


“This is a real and viable alternative to achieve the emergence of a series of facilities that have not been fully developed due to the lack of resources of the state government,” the lawmaker added.
