Playa Tamarindo y Playa Grande

After we left La Fortuna we drove to Playa Tamarindo, via Tilaran and Canas, and then north on the Panamerican Highway to Liberia. From there we drove west to the Pacific coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. Stefano and his family went to Playa Panama to a resort, but we drove another hour south to Tamarindo, to Hotel Diria. This hotel has the most fantastic swimming pool - it's build like a beach, so you can wade in, which I think is great. There are little coves, with islands and bridge, and a swim up bar. We spent a lot of time swimming there during the two days we spent at the hotel.

We also took a drive to Playa Grande, where Jim has a lot right near the beach. Right now it's quite overgrown, with only a real estate sign on it. We left for home around 2 p.m. on Saturday, and it took us about 3 hours to get home. The main road to the beaches has been paved, which makes a huge difference in travel time and comfort.
