Tamarindo to Bahia Samara
Heading south in little jumps seems way more fun than the multi-day cruises. We decided to make a few small jumps and enjoy the Pacific Costa Rican coast.
We had a lovely sunset at Tamarindo and a good swim to cool down.
The cove was very rolly again, but I guess I am getting used to it since I slept well. The next morning we were off at a relaxing 9:30 AM and headed to Bahia Samara.
It was a calm day with just slow ocean swell and very little wind. A perfect day for sitting on the bow and watching the dolphin play on the bow wake.
We entered Bahia Samara and the waves were breaking in the entrance of the harbor. It was a pretty awesome site but we were able to go north of the breakers and enter the harbor.
These waves are created by the ocean swells moving across a shoal at the entrance of the harbor but going next to them was impressive.
We entered the harbor and and there was a beach settlement directly behind us. We did not go ashore as we had a longer cruise to Tambor the next morning.
