Las Terrena is a sellout
"What a difference since 1996"
So many hotels being built. It was a shock seeing Las Terrenas and the changes since my first visit in 1996. The worst were the motoconchos taxiing tourists back and forth, the noise and the fumes just made me sick and all I wanted to do was get out.
There are so many new hotels I am wondering where they expect to find so many tourists to fill the rooms
"Las Terrenas a boom town"
A lot of construction work going on which leaves a lot of thrash and debris all over the place. The miles and miles of palm lined beaches are still there but I noticed a lot of seagrass growing which makes swimming not comfortable. However, I noticed the tourist don't seem to mind because they rarely go into the water the beaches are there just to get a tan , they rather swim in the chlorine infested pools at their hotels. To each his own. Lots of Germans, French and other Europeans have settled there creating work for the local people.
