In the not-too-distant past, Uvita was a little out-of-the-way area that featured a small grocery, a fantastic soda (remember El Viajero?) and a couple of services. Getting there from Dominical was a tricky drive that one could never really be sure they’d complete. There were rivers to cross and the condition of the road itself varied depending on the weather and other of nature’s forces. If there was a tree down, forget about it.
