Basic public infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, electrical generation, potable water systems, sewage disposal, and telecommunications, does lag behind development.
The road system in the Country is strained to handle the volume of traffic. Due to the mountainous nature of the Country, road closures are common in the rainy season, due to slides and washouts.
Electricity and telephone service is available in the majority of the Country, and Municipal and National Water Commission (AyA) water in urbanized areas, and private wells in rural areas. These utilities are billed monthly. The agencies charged with the provision of these services are very efficient at cutting-off the service for non-payment.
Sewage disposal is still predominantly by individual septic systems, with larger condo-style developments, being required to have on-site treatment.
Some high density developments on the Pacific Coast, in Manuel Antonio, Jaco and Tamarindo, are having particular trouble with the issue of sewage disposal.
