Condos in the hills over Playas del Coco

This photo shows condos climbing the hills above Playas del Coco. These condos are set back about 1 km (.6 mile) from the ocean, so the view of the ocean and bay is from a distance.
In a few days I will further explore the subject of hillside condos.

Hillside homes are in the news because of the tragic mudslides in the central valley near San Jose, which have buried some houses and killed at least 20 people within the past few days. That area is 4 1/2 hours from our area along the Pacific Coast.Right by the beach in Tamarindo, we do not have the rivers and big drainage areas that could cause mudslides, as our area has gentle hills and the rainfall flows into the ocean or estuaries.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing photos of the Roman ruins in Merida, Spain, and some photos of Seville.
