I'm currently in the Playa Hermosa area right now and just wanted to let people know that there are currently water restrictions in place.
The water company has shut off the water due to too much demand. The water is turned on between the hours of 9:30am and 1:30pm and then again from 6:00pm and 6:00am for most residential units. But in typical Costa Rican form they have not followed this schedule yet (ie. it's currently after 11am and there is no water yet).
Just wanted to give everyone that's heading here for the holidays a heads up.
