Entrance to Papagayo Peninsula

The trees I showed yesterday are part of the entrance to the Papagayo Peninsula. These statues are part of a huge water feature at the entrance. The guard station is at the right.

No one is allowed to drive down this private road to reach the Papagayo Peninsula unless you have a reservation at the hotel or restaurant or live at one of the houses or condos in this master planned development.

Note that the road is made of pavers. It is 7 km of paver stones on the roadway to reach the Four Seasons hotel from this entrance. I cannot imagine how much it cost just to pave the roadway.

This week we are showing photos of the Atacama Desert on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site, including the highest altitude geyser field on earth, high in the Andes Mountains in Northern Chile.

That kind of exclusive environment seems somehow out of place in Costa Rica.

Not sure what the sculptures represent. I am curious. Maybe a yoga "child's pose"
