Photo Fave: Sunset at Playa Hermosa, Pacific Coast of Costa Rica

by Shelly Rivoli

Me. There. Now. (Clicking heels.)

Well, at least I have some hundred photos to help remember (and try to relive!) all the fun our family had at the gorgeous, and even toddler-friendly beach we stayed by at Playa Hermosa. Here you can see what I mean by my description in the review of Blue Batik villa (just a few minutes’ walk from this very spot) of how the smooth sand beach is vast and wide–so much so that as the tide comes in and out it creates this mirrored expanse that seems to make all the world a sky as sunset draws near.

I’d seen some brilliant photos of sunset here before we arrived, but I never expected that taking magical pictures of it would be so easy–or addicting. Case in point: This photo was not taken with our good camera, but with the very basic but beachworthy waterproof (and nearly toddler-proof) Kodak Play Sport, which also captured some magical video footage of kids splashing in the surf and blue crabs on the run in nearby tidepools, among other treasures. (And in case you were wondering, we chose and paid for this camera ourselves.)

Thanks! I should say that it is not the camera for indoor / low lighting shots as it has no flash, and results were not very good there. But it is clearly an ideal beach (with sand-throwing kids) and snorkeling camera!

That's quite an endorsement of that little camera! Great shot!
