A tour guide's house

The house at the end of this driveway is where a tour guide lives.  The vehicle parked outside is a small van with a sign on it that says "Tourismo."

These are the type of vehicles that come to Tamarindo each day to pick up tourists and to take them to wildlife river trips, zip line adventures, or other activities.

Tourism is the number one industry in the area.  Costa Rica is a country of about 4 million people, which attracts more than 1 million visitors per year.  The Pacific beaches are a major tourist destination point.  In addition to people working as tour guides, of course the hotels, restaurants and shops employ lots of people.

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.
