Mouth of Langosta Estuary

Flying south down Langosta beach brought my son to the mouth of the Langosta estuary. To the left of this photo are the Barcelo Resort and the homes and condos of Playa Langusta, which I have shown in the past.

To the right is the 4,500 acre master-planned Hacienda Pinilla project, with homes, a golf course, and the new J.W. Marriott Guanacaste Resort.

The Langosta estuary separates Langosta from the rest of Tamarindo and Hacienda Pinilla. It makes Langosta sort of like a peninsula, as there is only one road in and out because he estuary snakes behind Langosta to provide a natural area as a buffer between Langosta and the rest of Tamarindo.

The Langosta estuary flows out to the sea at low tide, such as the time that this photo was taken, and flows in to the estuary at high tide.

Love how the colors change in this photo from green to darker green to the blue mountains. It would be fun to explore here in a canoe
