Pacific Park condos

About two weeks ago I showed an overview of Tamarindo from the top of a hill overlooking the town, with a new large condo dominating the skyline rising above the trees in the middle of town. I followed that with a photo of the back side of the condo with some surf shops in the foreground. This is a photo of the front side of the Pacific Park condos up close.

This is the building that advertises that it has brought "New York Style" to a Costa Rican beach. Well, I am pleased to report that the road in front of this condo is scheduled to be paved very soon.

The local government in Santa Cruz has signed all of the contracts necessary to pave the road in Tamarindo that leads to Playa Langosta, and this condo is located at the beginning of that road. After all, if this building is emulating New York Style, at least it should be located on a road that is paved. The last time I was in New York, the streets were paved.

I apologize for the telephone lines in the foreground of this photo, but, unlike New York, Tamarindo does not have underground wiring. I took this photo a few months ago, and there was still some construction activity going on. Although large buildings are somewhat controversial in Tamarindo, this building does make the community more upscale. These are elegantly designed and furnished condos located at a major intersection in town. This project replaced a group of old shacks that provided hostel accommodations for surfers at a few dollars per night.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. If you have not been there, please check out the our website this week. You are in for a treat.

It's funny about those wires...I try my best to avoid them when capturing an image. But they really are part of an accurate portrait of our time and place. So I'm glad your wires are there.

Methinks this would be a nice place to live...a bit pricey, though! And not to worry about the wires...that's what our new technological age is all about - getting wired! :-)

This building looks somewhat out of place from what I remember of Tamarindo.

Now I wonder where the surfers stay.
