The Barge at Puerto Viejo

The Barge at Puerto Viejo

The landmark barge at the entrance to Puerto Viejo is a reminder of the failed attempts of oil exploration efforts years ago on the Caribbean Coast. Despite high hopes and various attempts by the oil companies to drill in the region, the small communities of the Southern Caribbean have successfully resisted these efforts. Today the mountains and the oceans of the region remain mostly protected and void of oil drilling thanks to the local people and their vision for a clean future.
