Sunsets in Costa Rica

Sunsets in Costa Rica

In the fall of 2016 the desire struck me to get out of what would be freezing cold Pennsylvania over winter and head somewhere warmer for a few days.  An opportunity presented itself (cheap plane ticket) and a return trip to Costa Rica was planned for mid-January.  I had been once before, covering some 1,600km by car with three friends over 10 days, but this would be a solo trip and much more laid back.

Having been before, there were a few spots I wanted to revisit and new ones I sought out, but in the end the majority of the trip was to relax on the beach in the warm weather and clear my head.  Arriving in Libera, I got the Suzuki Jimny rental and headed south, using a small Airbnb in Los Pargos, about five minutes from Playa Negra as my base.

Each morning I’d wake and head to the beach, grab lunch after a few hours, then decide on another beach to view the evenings sunset, then find dinner.  These photos were taken on Playa Negra, Nosara, Playa Avellanas, and Playa Danta, where I lost my sunglasses.
