This is part of the grounds of the Tamarindo Diria Resort in the middle of Tamarindo beach. Two days ago I showed a tropical smoothie. What better place to enjoy a smoothie than relaxing on a lounge chair under the palm trees while listening to the waves and taking a dip in the ocean or the pool every once in a while.
I thought this photo might inspire a few day dreams for people in the U.S. Northeast who are enduring a big snow right now.
My wife and I stayed at the Diria Resort on our first trip to Costa Rica three years ago. We liked it so much we bought a condo in a new building under construction on the Diria resort grounds, with a nice view of the ocean. We later bought a second condo directly on beach in the Playa Langosta area of Tamarindo. Langosta is a quiet residential area, and I showed the ocean front in Langosta yesterday. The Diria is located right in the middle of town, with lots of restaurants and shops nearby and resort amenities.
Some people prefer the Langosta beach condo; and some prefer the Dira Resort condo. It can be a tough choice. I think I'll grab a smoothie, sit under the palm trees, and think about it. And while at the beach, I'll think about my fellow Americans in the U.S. Northeast who are digging out from the snow today.
