Condo courtyard

This is the courtyard of the condos across the street from our Langosta Beach condo. It is a pleasant environment of lush landscaping and fountains.

These condos are not right on the ocean so the owners or guests do not get a view of the beach and waves from their condos, which we really enjoy, but they have a very tranquil courtyard and they are a very short walk across the street and on a little path beside our condo to reach the beach.

Like many places in the world, developers in Costa Rica built too many condos during the real estate boom that collapsed several years ago. Quality projects, like this one and like the buildings where are condos are located, have continued to be successful, whereas projects that were not well planned or located have suffered. In future weeks I will show some examples of unsuccessful projects up in the hills in some of the other beach communities.

We are showing photos of the architecture of Santa Fe, New Mexico on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

Looks very italian, almost palladian.

Tranquil is the word I'd use to describe this courtyard. Very nice.

That is just beautiful. I would gladly live across the street from the ocean compared to the location I have now. :-)

The palm tree trunks look like big columns as in the egyptian temples. Fantastic place and shot too!
