With a nickname like "El pueblo de las doce calles," which means "the town of twelve streets," it probably comes as no surprise to visitors that this town is not overrun by resorts and hotels.  In fact, when a major resort chain tried to purchase land along the coast, the people protested the development and eventually the chain rescinded its offer.  Villas and rental homes remain the chief accommodation offering, allowing visitors to set up a place to call home as they explore the nearby Dry Forest Reserve.
