The condos were in a town called Esterillos Oeste-- about 45 minutes north of where we were staying in Manuel Antonio. So we hopped in our little Toyota Yaris rental car and drove up the coast. We stopped at a little gas station, where we were met by a man named Javier who took us here. . .
Pretty nice condos, right?? Here is the inside. . .
Jacob is my model.
Everything in here looked brand new and beautiful.
We were very impressed-- and these pics really don't do it much justice.
This was the view from our balcony.
We could hear the waves crashing right outside our bedroom!
But as nice as our condo was, we really just wanted to go enjoy the beach.
It was a little overcast that afternoon, but it was a beautiful beach. And the best part was that (with the exception of a few distant surfers who were minding their own business) we were the only ones there. It was just this great stretch of sand and beach and trees and then-- us. There was something so enchanting about it.
We coudn't leave costa rica without a good "dip" pic. It is kind of our trademark.
My swimsuit kinda looks skin-colored in these photos-- I apologize. In person it is like a shiny golden color. Bad lighting! (picture taken by a log)
The water was very warm and the waves very peculiar, so we spent a lot of time body surfing and playing in the waves. We also found tons and tons of really cool sea shells at this beach, and we made a little collection to take home with us.
A storm eventually started rolling in, and we enjoyed it!
And thus ended our adventures in the lovely and peaceful Eterillos Oeste. . . but we still had one day left in Manuel Antonio! One final post to come.
