It was a disaster for the town but the government decided to help by establishing a duty free shopping area of 50 shops to stimulate business. They were also aware that many Costa Ricans (or Ticos as they prefer to be known) crossed into Panama for duty free purchases so this provided a way of cutting back on that trade. It did ...
