Main Road Between Quepos and Manuel Antonio in Danger of Mountain Collapse

November 5, 2010

The Aguirre Chamber of Commerce issued an alert today warning that the main road connecting Quepos to Manuel Antonio is in danger of a mountain collapsing onto it. All business owners are advised to evacuate the stretch between the Tutu Bar and Mimo’s Hotel until a geologist advises how to resolve the danger.

The following emergency alert was sent out by e-mail by Harry Bodaan, president of the chamber:

“I just left a meeting with Ana Orosco, mayor of Quepos, and Dr. Alejandra Quesada of the Health Department concerning the imminent danger of a mountain collapse onto the main road leading from Quepos to Manuel Antonio. The subject area stretches from the new Tutu Bar to Mimo’s Hotel and everything on both sides of the road.

Owners are advised to close their businesses and vacate their premises until a geologist gives a report of what needs to be done to resolve this danger. The populated areas below this mountain are in grave danger of massive landslides.

Please prepare for the eventuality of Manuel Antonio being inaccessible until solutions can be found to do the necessary repairs to the main road, and be ready to contribute to the repair of the ‘Old Manuel Antonio Access Road’ in a major way.

… The imminent danger on the eve of our high season threatens the entire area of Manuel Antonio if swift action is not undertaken. We need your full cooperation as we stay focused on what to do next.”
