    You can fly to Mariscal Estigarriba (call sign: ESG), but it's not any airline destination.

    I still don't know what the status of the field is.
    In 1999 I discovered an open hangar being build, but still empty.
    There is a small station building (4 rooms) with fresh water and a radio to guide the occasional visiting plane.

    One soldier at the gate.

    Update: Around 2005 US marines were stationed here to increase political pressure.
