Tourist bus on a country road
At some point they will probably pave the road. I doubt that there are many luxury J.W. Marriott Resorts in the world that can be reached only on an unpaved road.
Like tourist vans, the bus has a sign "tourismo" on the bumper that identifies it as a bus for tourists, not Ticos. I do not know why they mark tourist buses and vans that way, except perhaps to inform Ticos about how many tourists are being driven around the country, spending money to support the local economy. I will show you an example of one of the benefits of tourism in the days ahead.
This week we are showing photos of some of the temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia, including Angkor Wat, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
