Flying Bird into Orange Sunset

We don’t spend much time on the West Coast, definitely not in Costa Rica. Those sunsets were gorgeous.

Playa Mansita Dancing in the Dusk

This is the same beach as was shown back in this post – Endless Possibilities, only of course after sun went down. Some clouds were lurking around and provided us a nice show. Of course someone had to jump down to the water and enjoy the beach in it a full  way. We need to try and make our way back down there.

Costa Rica Hauler Monkeys

Previous post showed a few spider monkeys. This time we have a few hauler monkeys. They probably have them all over Costa Rica, but we some them only in Guanacaste province. We stayed at nice resort in Hacienda Pinilla and these guys were living in the forest on the property. They are so loud. Bunch of them were sitting on tree right above the side road and made all kind of noise. We were trying to figure out what was going on. We had couple theories about it. There could be two families with dominating males hauling like crazy at each other. Other possibility is that it was one family with multiple females fighting for extra time with their hubby. Monkey experts would probably can confirm one of these theories or come up with another one.


Just think about the noise was coming out of that big mouse. 


He look pissed.


This one is not so pissed.


Ohh, cute little monkeys. These two are females.


Endless Possibilities

If you like to travel to remote beautiful places and have means to afford 5 star resorts, then Marriott at Hacienda Pinilla is the place to go. It is located about 20 minutes away from Tamarindo, a bustling little tourist city in Guanacaste province. The place is remote, so unless you like to be seating on the resort your entire time, I’ d suggest renting a car at the airport – it will save you tons of cash and allow to go around the province and maybe more.

This picture was taken from the end of their huge pool, with beautiful view on the ocean. Imagine yourself seating there in the water and watching sunset over Pacific. Makes me want to go back and relax for a few days.
