The houses and other photos that I have been showing during the last couple of weeks are typical of the scenes along the unpaved road that is the most direct route between Tamarindo and Santa Cruz. I think it is excellent that they have frequent, comfortable bus service from the nearest major town, with stops in the rural villages along the way.
People want and need jobs in the tourism sector of the economy, and hotels, restaurants and shops need workers. Like many tourist resort areas, the prices of condos and houses in Tamarindo are too expensive for local service workers. The buses are a good solution.
This week we have photos of Bhutan, featuring Buddhist festivals, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
