Costa Rica Sunset
Lens: DA* 16-50 Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Casa MelRay, Playa Potrero, Costa Rica 
Posted By: daacon, 11-17-2014, 06:31 AM

We were in Costa Rica the last 11 days. It was not really a vacation as we were down there for other reasons. We did manage a 4 day break and were fortunate enough to do a little traveling.

The first two days we stayed at Casa Melray which is one hour from Liberia airport in the northwestern region of Guanacaste in a town called Playa Potrero. The next two days we were in Jaco which is about an hour southwest of San Jose.

Casa Melray offers some beautiful sunsets and the first night we were treated to these.
