Actually, I think it would be a great asset to the island to have international arrivals into SP so long as there wasn't a need for significant airport expansion.

But I thought there should be a thread for everyone to jump in and say how bad the idea is... so go for it.


Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

Well, you asked for it: It is an idiotic idea. Serves no purpose other than ruining what is left of the uniqueness of this place and turning it into yet another Playa del Carmen nightmare.

I'm with Weile. 99.5% of the tourists are already international arrivals . . . getting there is half the fun. . okay, maybe not half, but there's a certain rustic charm, nonetheless.


When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

agreed. I would likely not come to San Pedro if it were served by any form of mass international transit.

The simple extra steps to get to San Pedro are just enough to keep away those with no desire to acquiesce to another culture and appreciate it for what it is.

I've seen the transformation of NW Costa Rica since the opening of the airport in Liberia. For Costa Rica, it's great because touristas can quickly spread to thousands of square miles from there and disappear into the culture. This is not possible in San Pedro due to its size and it would be destroyed.

I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.
