Wednesday World Travel - Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Image from

This week, I thought a lovely beach vacation would be appropriate to kick off the unofficial start of summer. So off to gorgeous Tamarindo, Costa Rica!

Tamarindo is known for it's terrific surfing, so the day will start with some surf lessons.

Hopefully, the lessons will provide surfboards in somewhat better shape than these, but I love the idea!

After surfing, some serious pool lounging will be in order. The pool at the Hotel Pasatiempo provides sun or shade, and close proximity to fruity mixed drinks.

Costa Rica can be pretty steamy, but this outfit will help cool things down. Plus, the cover up is cute enough to wear shopping or to have lunch in town.

The day will end with cocktails and a meal at the lovely Tamarindo Diria. Hope this puts you in a ready for summer mood!
