J.W. Marriott Guanacaste Resort

I showed a post from the golf course at the Four Seasons Papagayo a couple of days ago, so I thought I would give equal time to the J.W. Marriott Guanacaste Resort.  This is an aerial view of it taken by my younger son several years ago when he took a gyrocopter flight over Tamarindo.  Guanacaste is the name of

We can walk down the beach from Tamarindo to the location of this resort, if it is low tide across the mouth of the Langosta Estuary.  It is about 20 minutes to drive inland and around the estuary and surrounding rural communities.

We have never stayed here, of course, since we have condos nearby, but we have stayed at other J.W. Marriott Hotels and they are very nice.  The fact that Marriott would make the investment to build a resort of this quality and size very close to Tamarindo I think is a good thing, as it places sort of an international corporate seal of approval on our local area.

We have photos of Cape Breton Island on the northern tip of Nova Scotia posted this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  It is a pristine, beautiful place.

It is a big place, Dave. A big place like that has the potential to change the area.
