Quepos – Dominical Costanera Highway Update

The road between Dominical and Quepos is now completely finished. All of the road has been paved, bridges constructed and an easy 30 minute drive is all that separates Quepos/Manual Antonio from Dominical.

Historically, this drive could take up to 2.5 hours. As recently as two years ago this would take well over 1 hour.

Here’s some pictures of the completed highway. http://www.flickr.com/photos/solpropertygroup/sets/72157624256899829/

When we started purchasing land down in the southern zone five years ago it was a bit of challenge to drive to. Potholes on the Pan-American highway, potholes on the road from San Isidro to Dominical, or if you chose to drive through Quepos it added over an hour to go 22 miles.

Now the roads are in great condition on the Pan American highway, they are in great condition from San Isidro to Dominical and the road to Quepos is 30 minutes.

Here’s a video of the new intersection in Dominical: Click here

The time of “discovering” the southern zone is just beginning for most visitors. I believe in the next several years we will see a large increase in the number of visitors to the zone. For those who have ever considered purchasing now is a great time. The slow economy in the United States has lowered prices in many places in Costa Rica as US based owners shed their assets and with the new highways completed, do not hesitate if you eve r considered purchasing before the large influx of visitors come to this zone.

It is also important that developers protect the natural beauty that the Osa region has to offer.

At the Village of San Buenas we are committed to just that. We have removed approximately 75% of non-indigenous trees on the project (MINAE gladly gave us all necessary permits). This action alone took over a year and lots of resources, but we are now starting to see results. (We don’t touch any indigenous tree we find). We are seeing large numbers of loro parrots daily, we can hear the howler monkeys daily, and toucans and macaws are seen several times a week.

The reason for the quick increase (six months) is that they now have access to their food sources. We have also started planting more fruit bearing trees in the development. As we begin putting in roads and walking paths (scheduled to start in 2011) we will be planting almond trees to attract macaws as well as other trees to attract Osa’s magical wildlife.
