Manuel Antonio Park approach cleaned up in Costa Rica

A year ago the beach approach to Manuel Antonio Park was lined with sidewalk vendors and there were tents and clotheslines on the adjacent beach.

Today all that is gone. With the approaching opening of the new marina in Quepos and the importance of tourists at Manuel Antonio Park, the government has been effective in cleaning up this area and making it more easily accessible.

New Parittas Bridge is open near Quepos and Manuel Antonio

We learned this week through del Pacifico’s post on Facebook that the new Parittas bridge is open – the last one lane bridge between del Pacifico and Manuel Antonio Park. Though the ride across the bridge itself is only 2 minutes (the length of the YouTube video linked above), the wait on either side could be 1.5 to 2 hours at busy times. In the video you can see the new bridge on the right (if you take your eyes off the bridge ahead). The bridge looked and felt pretty rickety but we figured if the big 18 wheelers could make it across, so could we. We’re looking forward to crossing the new bridge when we’re there in January.

Bed & Breakfast coming to Tres Rios de Coronado in Costa Rica

Ocaso Cerro B&B site in Costa Rica

Ocaso Cerro B&B site in Costa Rica

Soon there will be a new bed & breakfast in Tres Rios de Coronado in Costa Rica. Our clients, Chuck & Debbie Knight, bought land south of Dominical a few years ago, with plans to build a home and a B&B on their ocean view land. Their soon-to-be Costa Rica B&B has both a website and a Facebook page. You can watch the construction progress on either of these sites. Tami and I have visited several areas of Costa Rica, but are waiting for this B&B to be finished before we check out the south Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

On a “small world” note – when we were last having lunch with Chuck & Debbie at Diner 437, we suggested they contact Charles Zeller of Ship to Costa Rica, whom we recently met in San Jose, about shipping their household goods – only to discover that Zeller had already visited them at their St Pete Beach condo!
