Leaving the Tamarindo Estuary

We are now heading back out of the Tamarindo Estuary.  As wild and jungle-like as are the scenes of the mangrove swamps that I have shown during the past week or so, you can see from this photo how close we are to "civilization."  Those are some of the houses of Tamarindo on the ridge overlooking the estuary.

In fact, the estuary is very close to the little Tamarindo airport, which has commuter flights from San Jose.  The land around the airport is owned by the Diria Resort Group and they have plans to develop a golf course and homes in the area.   They will leave the estuary in its natural state, as its ecology is protected.

This week we have more photos of Julie's raft trip through the Grand Canyon on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Costa Rica has the right idea in protecting the estuary and other resources of their community.

Following your blog is almost a journey in itself.

Just saw your comment. Visit again tomorrow for some men at the yoga event. My daughter is a yoga fanatic and my wife does it, too, but so far I have eluded any attempts to have me try it.
