Having a vehicle breakdown on the Interamericana is bad enough, but how about a boat?
That happened to one private operator Monday in the Gulf of Nicoya near an island called Pan de Azúcar. The pleasure craft, “El Gibor,” had suffered mechanical trouble, said the Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas. There were nine persons from children to seniors aboard, said crewmen.
The craft had to be towed to nearby Caldera for repairs, said the Servicio Nacional.
