The Ministry of Public Works and Transportation has finally budgeted money for a paved road between Nosara and Samara on the Nicoya Peninsula. The 30km of new road will help connect the towns between the two popular destinations.
During the green season this 30 km passage is often un-drivable. On this stretch of road there are several rivers flowing into the sea making it just about impossible to cross during the rainy season. The Rio Buenavista is one that is impossible to cross after the dry season ends.
Even in the dry season travelers are advised to use a 4×4 when using the coastal route.
The newly paved road is essential for opening up this area for tourist development. Of course the road may come as bittersweet for those who live or visit the area for the remoteness and lack of tall condo buildings.
It will connect the towns of Heron, Hope, and Ostional. It also will give residents assess to the beaches of the North Pacific; Scripts, Bare, Garza, and Nosara.
