To celebrate this year's 190th anniversary of the annexation of the Partido de Nicoya, bilingual community newspaper La Voz de Guanacaste (The Voice of Guanacaste) has put together a musical video tribute based on Guadalupe Urbina's song, "Vengo de una Tierra" ("I Come from a Land").
We were concluding a tour of Guanacaste with Canadian guests and arrived the long way, through Santa Cruz and then a gravel road from Playa Naranjo to Paquera. We were hot, tired, and covered in dust.
Workers will dredge near ferry docks, affecting an estimated 10,000 would-be passengers during the week.
The price for passengers taking the Paquera ferry will remain the same; ¢810 for adults and ¢485 for children under the age of 12.
