It's Summer in Costa Rica!
Hey everyone! I know it's been a minute but it's been pretty quiet in our life and since we are staying home most of the time, I haven't had much to report -- but I'm back today with a few pics.
Still loving our new city even if we rarely get out!
The hills of Escazú
The rainy season ended around the end of November and with it came the "dry" season and the wind! The winds can really get gusty during this time of year. Time to secure your plants and patio furniture!!!
Its now offically summer or "verano" in Costa Rica. The summer season goes from mid November to April. Summer is also "high" season and the most expensive time to visit. Tourism is still down here so if you are considering making a visit you may still be able to get a deal. Our covid cases are now on the decline so we are planning to begin venturing out to visit some other areas of Costa Rica.
We'll be starting very soon with a visit to Tamarindo, one of Costa Rica's most popular destinations. We have not been there yet so I will have more info to share.
Tamarindo is a town in the Guanacaste Province, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. It’s known for beaches with strong surf, like Playa Tamarindo and Playa Langosta. To the north, Playa Grande beach is a major nesting site for huge leatherback turtles, and forms part of Las Baulas National Marine Park. The mangrove-lined estuary of Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge protects animals such as howler monkeys and crocodiles. ―Source Google
Meanwhile, back at home... a few pics
We explored a local resturant called The Breakfast Club and met up with our friend Bonita who is here from Dallas.
Also, our friend Verdette has finaly retired and moved back to stay with us again. She and I had a few pictures framed at a local framer.
During the summer the temps are generally hotter in most parts of the country. If you aren't at higher elevations or by the beach where you can catch the waves you might want to seek out other ways to cool off.
"Closed Temporarily" This door has been closed since we moved into our condo in July.
