This photo of an older section of the main street in Tamarindo offers a contrast to yesterday's photo of a new commercial building in the center of town. The buildings in this photo, with a second story veranda and a thatched roof on the building at right, interspersed with palm trees, is more of what you would expect of a Costa Rican beach town, rather than yesterday's photo.
The beach and ocean is right behind these building, which makes them an ideal location for surfboard rental and other beach shops. I would not expect to find a yoga, tai chi or dance studio in any of the buildings in this photo, whereas that business seems right at home in the modern shopping center featured in yesterday's post.
Tomorrow I will show a photo of the old and the new in Tamarindo in the same picture.
