The cantons of Pococí and Guácimo are located north of the province of Limón, a territory that was formerly called “Línea Vieja”, alluded to the railway line built by Minor Keith to enable the production of bananas in that region. From there emerges the economic development of the area directed to an agro-export model, of which the majority of the population is dedicated to agricultura and livestock. Thirty-one members including men and women, all producers of papaya, who saw the need to organize themselves to centralize the production activity, thus achieving greater control over the management and quality of the crop, founded an association called ASOPROPA. Since there is a problem of lack of land to lease this association, I submit a project to INDER to acquire a farm, which was granted to them The members of this association seek the advice of ICT and public universities to generate an agro-industrial tourism project, taking advantage of the processes of planting, packaging and added value of papaya production. The proposal presented here is developed in conjunction with ASOPROPA integrating the intentions of the association as the needs of the area.
