About a week or two ago I posted some photos of my wife when she did not want to walk or swim across the mouth of the Langosta Estuary when it was high tide, and a lifeguard picked her up in a kayak. The Tamarindo Estuary is about 10 times larger than the Langosta Estuary. The most dangerous place to swim is at the mouth of the estuary because the current can flow like a river out to the ocean, yet here a two ladies and their dogs, one of them quite small, frolicking right in the mouth of the estuary.
This photo shows that if you pay attention to the tide, even the most dangerous place on Tamarindo beach can be safe to swim. The rest of Tamarindo beach is a wonderful place for swimming, with a gentle slope of a beach in a bay that is partly sheltered and partly exposed to the ocean waves for surfing.
We are showing photos of India this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. If you have not checked out the photos yet this week, I think you are in for a treat.
