Overview of Tamarindo
The yoga dance studio that I showed yesterday is in the building whose roofline is visible in the front left. The most controversial aspect illustrated by this photo is the effect on the skyline of large condo buildings. I showed one of the anti-development posters on a store in the old part of town a few days ago. The old part of town is under the trees in the right side of this photo.
I like that the center of town has so many trees and preserve the small town atmosphere of the area. On the other hand, the development of condos and hotels allows more people to enjoy the area and supports the restaurants, shops, tour guides and jobs in the area.
The beach is at low tide. You can see how gradual the slope of the beach is. At the wide part of the beach is the location of the Capitan Suizo Resort. It has a nice restaurant right on the beach, which is hidden under the canopy of the trees.
This week we are showing photos of the Khmer jungle temples of Cambodia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
