Papagayo Peninsula from the air

For a change of pace from the beach photos I have been showing, here is a photo the of the entire length of the Papagayo Peninsula from the air. The Four Seasons Resort is in the narrow saddle of the peninsula, and the fairways of the golf course are visible on the higher land beyond it.

Unless I am arriving at night, I always get a window seat on the left side of the plane when flying in to the Liberia Airport so I will have a view of the coast as the plane loops from the north and makes its approach over the coastline into the Liberia Airport.

The coastline of this area north of Tamarindo is very scenic, as you can tell from this photo. There are not as many beaches, however. The houses and condos have dramatic views of the ocean. Julie and I prefer being right next to the beach for long walks along the ocean.

Speaking of views of the sea, please check out the photos of Montenegro on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

Aerial shots are such a good way to see "the lay of the land."

This would be so nice to see from the window of the airplane.
