Christmas at the Barcelo Resort, Langosta

Christmas decorations seem out of place amidst a tropical resort, but the Barcelo Hotel in Langosta Beach has holiday decorations spiraling around the poles of its lobby. Holiday vacationers are enjoying the pool and the sunshine.

I have seen lots of photos of snow lately on the Daily Photo websites from Europe, USA and Canada, so I thought you might like to see what the Christmas season is like in sunny Tamarindo, Costa Rica.

The Barcelo Resort is an all-inclusive resort in the Langosta area of Tamarindo, which is an upscale residential area. It has a small casino, although I have never been in the casino even though our condo on Langosta beach is only about 50 meters from the Barcelo Resort.

In Costa Rica casinos are restricted to hotels, and the size of the casinos are small and are limited to a certain size based on the number of rooms in the hotels. The casinos are not gaudy or flashy. At the Barcelo, you would not know that there is a small casino on the property unless you noticed a little sign in front. Most people come to Costa Rica for the beaches, the wildlife, and the natural beauty, not for casinos.

Christmas in a tropical paradise is different than a traditional Christmas, of course. For scenes of a more traditional Christmas, please check out this week's photos on Viva la Voyage. We are showing photos of the Christmas holiday season in Vienna, Austria.

Those poor people! What's wrong with snow and -14 Celsius for Christmas I ask?

I wonder how many of these people will have to go home and shovel their sidewalks.

Wow, the weather there does not look like the weather in Montpellier today. It is almost dark already and raining.

Enjoy the sun at Christmas!

Thank you very much for your nice comment on my blog.

It hasn't got a Christmas look to it but it has a fun look just the same.

Funny story on Bratcat's site. I think we all have one of those in our memory bank. Thanks for sharing.

This looks pretty good to me! Christmas does not necessarily need snow or cold weather.
