The traffic in Tamarindo includes people driving ATVs up to the hills to ride on trails and surfers walking to the beach.
The road from Tamarindo to Langosta, which starts at this intersection, is scheduled to be paved within the next few months, which will cause this intersection to be paved also.
There is one thing I will miss when all of the streets are paved. In Tamarindo every once in a while they will spray a molasses-like sealant on the unpaved streets. It is a by-product from the sugar can that is grown in the area. It keeps down the dust, but it also has a sweet aroma.
This week we are showing photos of Uxmal, a remarkable Mayan site in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
