Playa Langosta, looking south

This is the view to the south along Playa Langosta from the spot where our Langosta condo is located. It is the opposite view to the scene I showed yesterday.

It is possible to walk an enormous distance south along a pristine beach if you wade into the ocean to cross the mouth of the Langosta estuary. In the distance of this photo is a point of land. I like to walk around that point and another couple of hundred yards south, which is the location of the Hacienda Pinilla Golf Course. A little farther is the new J.W. Marriott Guanacaste Resort and Spa.

The iguanas that I showed in my two posts a few days ago were along the stretch of beach near the far point in the distance of this photo. In a a week from today I plan to show the creepy sight that I saw up in a tree when I ventured into the woods from that stretch of beach while I was following a group of howler monkeys.

We have the beach here, but not so pristine and certainly no monkeys. This looks gorgeous.

Loomousine,
I am sure you will love the new J.W. Marriott Guanacaste Resort. It is located in the Hacienda Pinilla project, a 4,500 acre master-planned resort. The beach in the background of today's photo is part of that project.

I was last at the J.W. Marriott when it was still under construction. I saw the Resort two days ago from a boat in a distance, but have not yet been to it since it has been open. I hope to get down there this week and will take a look and post some information if I do.

I will try to provide more information about it, but I have to run now. I have a boat to catch in a few minutes for a wildlife viewing trip on the Tamarindo estuary.

Wow. What a beautiful beach shot. The sand. The clouds. The azure swells of the ocean.

I recognize some of the plants on your blog. I come from Bermuda. Your fauna though is rich, varied and spectacular. What a paradise.

Dave, Thanks for the info. My wife and I love the pictures of your condo....maybe next summer ???
Anyway, your page has been invaluable as we plan for our trip June 24 - July 1. The photos are beautiful, and only increase the excitement. THANKS for providing this site. We may have to retire in Costa Rica~~~~hope the wildlife trip was a success.
