Modi's photos show everything from Pedros and beyond gone. The 6th photo is unit 55 (Blue on left) belonging to Bob and Gretchen Morrison. Photos 10-12 show the road from where unit 50 used to be, toward the Papagayo. The studios would have been on the right and units 49 to 47 on the left. The yellow edged building is 46.

Yes, I agree.. but as CNN is reporting in Florida, the storm surge could be a real problem and it looks like Orient Village suffered immensely from that. It's just unbelievable what I have seen in the few photos available of Orient Village. La Playa and area is almost unrecognizable.

If the buildings housing Orange Fever, which were built to modern French standards, didn't survive, what can be built that will survive? And remembering the conflicts between what the Collective wanted for rent and what the renters were willing to pay, how contentious will future negotiations be?

Its a lot easier to build against wind then waves. It's the waves that undermined may of the beach facing structures the wind was then just icing. Not much you can do against waves as the chalets, poured concert failed when undermined.

Looking at the 360 picture and that pic of the glass door on the ground at CO got me thinking, its going to be years before I'd feel safe walking barefoot in that sand. All the glass and nails that's most likely buried in the sand to who knows how deep.

Here's another of Papagayo's Restaurant at Club Orient.


And some were asking about the new structures by Orange Fever, Chez Leandra, the old Baywatch etc. that were built after Hurricane Gonzalo
came through in Oct. 2014.
Looks like their walls gave out before their roofs had a chance to be detached... Here they be...
