Why we went to Jaco, Costa Rica
Lens: DA* 16-50 Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Jaco, Costa Rica 
Posted By: daacon, 11-26-2014, 04:19 PM

We arrived in San Jose Tuesday evening late. We spent 4 days there in a suburban hotel. San Jose is a large city (about 1 million there are about 4 million total in the country). We were going stir crazy and as luck would have it, we got a 4 day break. Two of those days we spent in Jaco. Wow is all I got to saw about that place.

#1 - Drove up to reception I took a look as soon we got out the car and voila .........


#2 - A nice touch as we entered our room


#3 - An early morning panoramic view from our balcony where we enjoyed some Costa Rican coffee and Baileys .......


#4 - Albeit the weather was not all that co-operative it is still one of the nicest sunset views one can imagine

Thanks Christian Rock - picture quality wise this lens has always been my go to - I have it in twice though for repair , once on Pentax's dime (AF issues) and once on mine (SDM failure) still worth it to me.
