Lista vía de Tarrazú hacia Quepos abruk 19, 2008

José Hernández

Corresponsal

Tarrazú, San José. La Municipalidad de Tarrazú y la Comisión Nacional de Emergencias finalizaron los trabajos de lastreo en la carretera que comunica a este cantón con Quepos de Aguirre con una inversión de ¢150 millones.

El trayecto de 33 kilómetros permitirá a los agricultores y al turismo trasladarse de la zona de Los Santos hacia el pacífico central en una hora de duración.

“Se podrá visitar las playas, permitirá el paso de productos de la zona y el aumento de la calidad de vida de los residentes en terrenos de Aguirre y de Tarrazú”, dijo Iván Suárez, alcalde de Tarrazú.

Además, se le colocaron cunetas de caño y se construyó una desviación para evitar el tránsito por zonas donde en época de invierno se producen derrumbes.

“Acá ha participado La Municipalidad, el Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes y la Comisión Nacional de Emergencia y también las comunidades”, explicó.

Leonardo Quesada, presidente de la Federación de Municipalidades de la zona de Los Santos (Femusan) explicó que será un gran empuje para los habitantes.

“Ahora no hay que irse por Puriscal, ni por Pérez Zeledón. Solamente se va por dentro y en una hora se está en Quepos”, señaló.

Agregó que eso podría llevar inversión a la zona, ya que los empresarios podrían ubicarse en cualquiera de los tres cantones (Dota, Tarrazú y León Cortés) y desde ahí poder viajar rápido a Caldera.

“Esto acorta mucho el trayecto. Y se buscan opciones de incentivar el turismo”, dijo Durán.

Francisco Salazar, vecino de Tarrazú, explicó que esta mejora atraerá ofertas de trabajo.

“Acá se trabaja en agricultura y café. Si vienen otras empresas habrían más empleos”, explicó.

La vía beneficia a comunidades como Santa Juana, San Carlos y el Pito, las más alejadas de Tarrazú.

 

The Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail road pass

Click here to see the Trail Map!

The vision behind the Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail is to enhance the trail already in place between Quepos to the Highlands of Tarrazu, linking communities, parks and wilderness areas. The idea to promote the trail came about in 1998 during Tarrazu's 130th anniversary celebrations.
This new symbol of the Quepos - Tarrazu communities connects Central Pacific Costa Rica's towns and valleys and serve as a tremendous recreation and tourism resource. The trail already links dozens of communities, passes through many parks and areas of spectacular natural scenery and exposes travellers to Costa Rica’s rich natural and cultural heritage.

The Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail winds its way through every town and territory in the Central Pacific area of Costa Rica linking dozens of communities along its route. It can be listed among the most picturesque trails in the world – a trail accommodating six potential activities: beach combing, walking, cycling, horseback riding, bird watching and white water rafting (where possible/desired). The trail starts at Manuel Antonio National Park, famous for its white sand beaches, and ends in the Costa Rica Tarrazu Gourmet Coffee capital, San Marcos. at almost 6000 feet above sea level.

The flat portion of the route is over 25 kilometres long and winds its way from Manuel Antonio beach to Paso Real or Esquipulas, at the base of the Talamanca Sierra. The flat trail passes through some of Costa Rica’s most stunning landscapes: Manuel Antonio National Park, Downtown Quepos, the African Palm tree Plantations and the lower part of the Naranjo and Paquita rivers. The trail follows a variety of corridors: abandoned Indian trails, dirt roads, park and forest trails and some secondary roads.

The Mountain portion of the route is about 30 kilometers long and winds its way through the Alto Quepos Mountains and Forest Reserve. Starting at Esquipulas, the trails climbs up via an abandoned old road that used to communicate Costa Rica with Colombia, long time ago. This historic Mountain pass goes through picture-perfect landscape where waterfalls, ancient rain forests and hidden valleys takes you to another world, reminicent of a Jurassic Park-like experience. You will likely see Macaws, Howley Monkeys, the elusive Jaguarundi and the Resplendent Quetzal, the sacred bird of the Indians who lived in this wild territory long time ago. The trails takes you to the Small village of Naranjillo where you can meet wonderful native people who always greet visitors to their small mountain valley. Then the trail goes up to the clouds and takes you to the El Pito Mountain pass and Alto Quepos Real Estate, at 6000 feet above sea level, where you can see breathtaking views of the Quepos Plains. Finally, the trails and secondary roads takes you to the highland valley of Tarrazu, source of the most sought-after gourmet coffees in the world. Coffee farmers will greet you as you approach the commerce center of the valley, San Marcos de Tarrazu

The Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail is an excellent example of local governments and community groups working together on projects that provide recreational opportunities, while fostering economic development for local communities. It is a natural choice for a development project as it is leaving a lasting legacy for all Central Pacific Costa Ricans.


How it's Happening

Quepos - Tarrazu trail was founded in 1998 to develop the Central Pacific portion of the Country.

Volunteer support is essential to the Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail initiative. Individuals, communities, schools, service clubs, corporations, governments and countless other organizations have joined together in this national partnership, and more are welcome to support the entire effort.

The communities that benefit from the trail are helping bring it about, and regional councils along the the route are working to make sure key decisions about the route are locally controlled.

Also, we have to thank all people in the Tarrazu Valley that have been involved in the project since the first attempts to built the first trails to the coast were done back in the 1920's.

. For more information on how to contribute to the Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail, go to the Quepos - Tarrazu real estate website contact page here!

The Quepos - Tarrazu communities' Involvement

The Quepos - Tarrazu communities have emerged as leaders in working toward completion of the trail, and thousands of Costa Ricans have become involved in making it reality.

The Quepos - Tarrazu Communities government is a strong supporter of the Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail project, and is working with local community groups and individuals.

All portions of the trail are already complete and open for use but lots of enhancements need to be completed. Users should recognize that the Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail is a work in progress and some sections require upgrading. Trail users should also be aware that resource development activities may occur adjacent to, across, or on the trail.

The purpose of this website is to provide some general, touring information for cyclists. As work continues on Quepos - Tarrazu Mountain Trail, more information will be added to this site.
