After five days of excitement around Arenal, we headed south and west to the Nicoya Peninsula for two days of pure relaxation. The town to which we were headed – Playa Naranjo – is a little off the beaten path for most vacationers. No hotels, no guided tours within a 30 minute drive. Right near our rented house we stumbled across this beautiful beach – there were only about 10 other people (all locals, from what we could tell) – and took in the scenery:

Thanks for viewing! More vacation photos are up next week, and then we’ll return to portraits and engagements!
