In this first “Only in Costa Rica” post I bring you the remodeled Paseo de los Estudiantes, which is now called “Barrio Chino”.

Calle 7 is now a pedestrian boulevard from Avenida 2 to just past Avenida 14.

Crossing the Calle is traffic on Avenidas 8, 10, 12 and 14. To reduce traffic on the Avenidas crossing the pedestrian walkway some “genius” at muni gave the green light to build “topes” which are are really mounds of concrete in the centre of the crossing.

The mounts are almost invisible to drivers in daylight and completely at night. And in typical Costa Rican fashion there is no signage warning of the mounds. NONE.

In the photos I took at 4:30pm Wednesday, you can see that some vehicles hump the mound, while others skirt it. One photo shows where many a vehicle has scraped bottom.

We fear that there will be more than one vehicle lose control and end up inside one of the corner shops. You be the judge.
