This is part of Tamrindo Beach in front of the Diria Resort. The resorts staff puts the lounge chairs and umbrellas out on the beach each morning and takes them in at night.
All beaches in Costa Rica are public property, so they have a system of bracelets that hotel and condo guests wear to make sure that the only people who use the chairs are people who are staying at the hotel rooms or or condo units that are part of the Diria resort.
The palm trees provide shade for people who prefer to say on the resort's lawn rather than using the lounge chairs on the beach.
This week we are showing photos of an old cemetery and ruins of an old Friary on the Hill of Slane, Ireland, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
