Papagayo Peninsula and Bay from the air

When I fly to the international airport in Liberia, Costa Rica, I ask for a window seat on the left side of the plane if I will be arriving during daylight. The reason is that there will be a nice view of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and a direct view of the Gulf of Papagayo and the Papagayo Peninsula as the plane makes its descent towards the Liberia Airport.

Here you can see the entire length of the Papagayo Peninsula, from the mainland to the tip. The entire peninsula is gated and is reserved for residents and guests of the Four Seasons Resort, which is located in the narrow saddle near the end of the peninsula. The fairways of the golf course are the green patches that trace the spine of the peninsula.

This week we are showing photos of architectural details of Budapest, Hungary on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Beautiful. I always wonder what I'm looking at when I fly into places. Sometimes I can't even tell what it is when I am flying into Phoenix!
