New road for Playa Panama Guanacaste Costa Rica

New road for Playa Panama Guanacaste Costa Rica announced Luis Liberman, Costa Rica second vice president. $1.5 million will be spent to build a new 2 kilometer road that will connect Playa Panama with route 159, which links the coast to Liberia and the international airport. It was announced Saturday during the anniversary of Guanacaste’s annexation to Costa Rica. The first stage will connect the town of Panama to Route 159 and the second will connect Route 159 with Playa Buena. It will also include improvement of some of the side roads and bridges in the area and creation of new bus stops. These projects are expected to be completed in the next 3 months.

I’ve driven several times on the road from Playa Panama to the Liberia airport, along decent paved roads, so wondered about this and queried my friend, Mike. It seems the locals are also trying to figure out where this is.

I asked about the “city” of Playa Panama –  “there is a small town in Playa Panama that nobody knows about. It was a dirt road just before the hill going over to Hermosa. It was paved recently. There is another dirt road leading off the new road to the Do It that we think is the road they are talking about.”  Hours later, another response: “I just figured out it is the extension of the road leading to the Grand Occidental and what will be the new Westin. The Boulevard as we call it. That dead ends at the old Costa Blanca hotel, remember? It has been juiced up.”

And now you know the rest of the story.

If the work is done by January, I’ll take photos.
