Houses on peninsula in Playa Flamingo bay

This is a closer view of the peninsula in Playa Flamingo bay that I showed yesterday. This looks like quite a compound of ocean front homes. I will show more such scenes tomorrow.

Maybe next time I go site seeing in the Playa Flamingo area I will try to drive out onto this peninsula to take a closer look at what is out there.

Playa Flamingo is about 15 - 20 minutes north of Tamarindo. The road goes as far as Playa Portero near where these photos from the north side of the bay were taken. To reach beaches further north, one has to drive inland, take the main road north, and then head back west to the ocean. There was an idea floated a couple of years ago to build a road along the coast, called the Ruta del Sol, but that would be very expensive and would post environmental issues.

We are showing photos of the monuments of Washington D.C. at sunrise on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

It always amazes me to see how close the buildings are to the water. You would be able to hear the waves lapping the shore all night long. What a lullaby that would be.

It always pleases me when you speak of Costa Rica's emphasis on taking care of the environment.

This looks amazing.

The houses look like they are situated rather nicely on the peninsula.
