Playa Ventenas, Costa Rica
Enjoying the view. That's what Dean is doing.
Do you feel like you could die happy, if only you could spend just one day on the perfect beach? Not me. I demand to have hundreds, even thousands, of those kind of days. But, if you do happen to find yourself on death's door, you just might complete your bucket list here in Costa Ballena. Even the locals think it is the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica.
I tried out my new water camera. The results were mixed. Literally!
School is not out little doggie.
Here is what the caves look like from a boat. In the middle of the photo there's a sneaky little opening to the beach beyond.
Sea arches dot the coast line of Costa Ballena.
What's this? Mysterious cave creatures...
There are a lot of great things about Playa Ventenas. For one, it's in Costa Rica. Enough said. But there is so much more. Blue green mountains create the jungle backdrop. Close to shore, palm trees sway along a cool mountain stream. Take a step, barefoot, and follow the water as it drizzles into the warm ocean. And did I mention the sea caves? There are two of them. At high tide the ocean fills them up to the brim. At low tide the mysteries are revealed. You can walk all the way to the ocean. And at all times, the ocean is funneled through the caves, creating an echoing roar as it bursts in and flows over your feet. Heaven.
The caves simply create unbridled joy! (see above)
And did I mention the view?
Who is that handsome devil?
