Beach Hopping Guanacaste

A travel blog entry by stacek68


Liberia is the first major town after you cross the border from Nicaragua to Costa Rica on the Pan American Highway. To take advantage of the fact that Mariano works as a topographer for Hacienda Pinilla - a 90 min drive away - we got off in Liberia to beach hop along the Northern Guanacaste coast line for a few days. Bliss! Lots of the beaches in …

Turtles, turtles everywhere!

... eye could see. I was told that they have a one track mind, with the mums-to-be solely focused on digging their hole, laying around 100 eggs, camouflaging the nest and then heading back out to sea. They use their powerful flippers to drag themselves up the beach and then to dig their nest, I got accidentally flicked with a flipperful from quite a distance, so can appreciate how much sand they're shifting! It's all a lot of ...

... from the pool in Tabby's cousins van and we headed out. We went and purchased a bit of alcohol to enjoy on the beach and went to Playa Grande first so the guys could surf. It was a really nice beach actually but the waves weren't that great so we went into Tamarindo instead. The girls and I headed straight down the the beach whilst the boys went to skateboard. Tamarindo beach is much nicer than I was expecting and I had a great time finding tons of awesome shells on ...

... and there were puppies!) and I learnt a lot. Although some of it was so difficult! Going to take a lot of practice to get some of it though. When we'd finished I cycled down to meet Laura and her friend Gary for a drink at beach bums and we all decided to go for dinner at a local Italian restaurant.

    Perched on the edge of a cliff at the end of a dirt road on the outskirts of Junquillal sits this lovely hotel. Rooms are basic but clean but the pool is magical.
