Pavones: Tiny Surf Capital Up In Arms About Big Condo Project

July 14, 2015

Pavones is famous for having the world’s second-longest left surf break, and a brother and sister from here just led Costa Rica to a gold medal in the International Surfing Association’s World Games. But it’s a town so small it doesn’t even have an ATM.

Now a developer from Texas is building a 60-unit beachfront condominium complex, right in front of the famous wave, and a lot of people are up in arms over the size of this project and the zoning plan that comes with it. Others say it will bring Pavones jobs and help to fix the roads, bridges and water supply.
