Sansa Airlines flying in to Tamarindo
This is a Sansa airline plane, with landing gear down, getting ready to fly past Tamarindo beach and then land at the small airport in Tamarindo. The best part of these flights is that the wings are above the windows, so everyone has a good view.
The first time Julie and I came to Costa Rica, we spent a little more than a week traveling around the central highlands and over to the Caribbean coast, then we took a 45 minute Sansa flight from San Jose to Tamarindo. We fell in love with Tamarindo and bought our first condo there.
On all of our later trips, we have flown into the international airport in Liberia, just one hour away. My son has flown into Tamarindo on Sansa or Nature Air several times, and having a small airport nearby is an asset for bringing some of the tourists to the area.
This week we have more photos of Julie's recent raft trip through the bottom of the Grand Canyon on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
