As I mentioned before the beaches in Costa Rica were fairly rocky but there was one beach, Playa Tamarindo, that had a lot of soft sand and people laid out on. We also got to see a beautiful sunset there with all kinds of boats anchored in the water. I couldn’t take my eyes away from it. I used my Canon PowerShot on manual to capture these photos.

This beach was also a hot spot for surfers, even though the waves weren’t that big.

The beaches also had huge, beautiful pieces of driftwood.

After we checked into our first resort, we decided to explore the grounds and take a walk on the beach (Playa Mansita). The sand was so fun with its interesting patterns. Sometimes it sparkled in areas. I captured these next photos with the DSLR. My ISO was set to 100 with my shutter speed high since it was so bright out.

And even though it rained a lot, we were lucky to catch a some sunsets.

This picture was taken from the deck of the second resort we stayed at. The boat sailing into the sunset was magical to watch.
