La Penita is a combination beach town and farming community. It is close enough to Rincon de Guayabitos to get some tourist traffic and close enough to Las Varas to get some agricultural traffic. Mostly this is farming county, but I have noticed that cattle are starting to be more present. We spotted a few new round pens and holding chutes being constructed, so something is changing. I did find out that free range cattle are the responsibility of the Transito Police. If a roaming cow devours your new papaya tree, you just call the Transitos and give them the ear tag number and they will track down the owner. (Notice the bovine above is tag free, as are most of the cattle I see out and about) Good to know, now if we can just get the cows to leave their numbers when they check in during the night to eat the plants, we can maybe have our own papayas one day.
