Did you know Herradura means horseshoe in Spanish? I thought I'd post some photos I took the other day of Herradura Bay. Herradura is about five minutes west (or north as the locals say) of Jaco. As of yet, there is no construction on the beachfront of Herradura and things look basically like they have for years, except for the development of Los Sueños at the west end of Herradura. I am still waiting for someone to build a boat ramp there so people can launch their boats and jet skis. One day...... Right now, fishermen just anchor off in the bay and this is where you go to find a boat taxi to get to Escondido beach (hidden, private beach) or get better rates for fishing trips since these fishing boats do not pay the high docking fees charged at Los Sueños. Make sure you check the boat though for equipment before heading out miles off shore. GPS is nice, so are life jackets!
Before I moved to Costa Rica, I longed to see anything from here. These photos are for those people.
