Tamarindo estuary

Here is a photo of the Tamarindo estuary. Tamarindo, including Playa Langosta, stretches along the beach between two estuaries: the Tamarindo estuary on the north and the Langosta estuary on the south.

There is a street that runs along the each in Tamarindo and Langosta, but the estuaries are the reasons that there is not a road that leads right along the coast in each direction from Tamarindo.

I mentioned several days ago in my series about Playa Flamingo that there was a proposal to build a road along the ocean, but that it was not likely to happen due to environmental and budgetary reasons. It would be harmful to the estuaries to build a road across these wetlands. The Tamarindo estuary is part of the Las Baulas de Guanacaste National Marine Park, which also extends out into the ocean in Tamarindo Bay.

This week we are showing photos of the architecture of Spain on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
