Houses overlooking Flamingo Bay

This is the last in my series of photos from Playa Flamingo, including some of the homes in the area. I hope you have found it of interest.

Homes along the Pacific in Costa Rica are much more economical per square foot than condominiums. In many cases it is possible to buy a house on a hillside with a view of the ocean for about the same price as a condo along the beach. One of the reasons is that the homes and ncondos are marketed primarily to foreigners who will not be living there year round. It is a lot easier to take care of a condo than a house and yard while away from Costa Rica.

Tomorrow I will show you what we saw on the short drive back from Flamingo to Tamarindo.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we have posted photos that show the diversity of architecture in Spain, including Moorish architecture, a building fit for the royal family, and the tile work of a restaurant in Madrid.
