Businesses Help Fix Tamarindo Road

September 22, 2006

Hotel owners, real estate developers, restaurants and other businesses raised $16,000 to repair the Calle Langosta road in Tamarindo, a beach town in the northwestern Guanacaste province, according to a statement from the nonprofit Pro Mejoras de Tamarindo Association.

The money was used to repair 2.7 kilometers of the road, which runs from Tamarindo to the nearby town of Villa Real and is traveled by thousands of Costa Rican and foreign tourists daily, the statement said.

The funds went toward 2,430 cubic meters of gravel to repair the road, and the Santa CruzMunicipality provided $10,000 for machines and labor, the statement said. Private donations were important in ensuring that the project continued as scheduled, said Jessica del Rossi, director of the association.

“We found members of the community to be very cooperative,” Rossi said. “In general, we received a very positive response from our community.”

Businesses that contributed to the roadrepair project include Sueño del Mar, Iguana Surf, The Tamarindo News, Villa Langosta Condo Association, Century 21 and Restaurante Bistro Langosta.
