This is the end of our road, the only way to get to Panama from here is walk or by boat. The little town of Manzanillo sits at the end of this road. The population explodes during Semana Santa otherwise it is quiet. If the government gets its way, most of this town will be gone too even though it has been here for many years. Life does go on and we enjoy all of the special moments we have here.
One of the activists who has been working to stop the demolition said he had traveled to San Jose to meet with some of the government officials to talk about other ways to solve this problem. In the meantime, he happened to see the “BIG” picture of the future plan for our small community. He returned very depressed. Most of the Ticos do not like it here because it is too hot and humid, they prefer the cool mountain air of the Central Valley. They are not the target audience for this future development, it is the rest of the world , a chance to cash in on the Caribbean adventure that most of the other islands have developed. This is many years down the road so we will have a few years to enjoy the peace and quiet before the big boom.
