Pavones: Tiny Surf Capital Up In Arms About Big Condo Project
Pavones is famous for having the world’s second-longest left surf break, and a brother and sister from here just led Costa Rica to a gold medal in the International Surfing Association’s World Games. But it’s a town so small it doesn’t even have an ATM.

Others say it will bring Pavones jobs and help to fix the roads, bridges and water supply.
