  1. WoW! Those are interesting statistics. Looks like the residents maintain the roads, while tour companies benefit and pay nothing back to the residents. Is this really being allowed to happen? This is an obvious inequity, which should be addressed immediately. In the meantime?

    • I have the same question as Linda. Especially in light of the fact that condo and homeowners are going to be asked to help pay for road repairs.

  2. We were really discouraged last trip by the damage to the lagoon and the huge amount of traffic going back and forth. It’s so unfortunate and is creating a permanent mark on the community.

  3. lagoon is far too populated. Day trippers should be barred or pay a hefty fee. Perhaps the Vecinos can help institute that. Lagoon is indeed crowded at times and is being destroyed.
