I spent half of the day on the beach to catch at least the glimpse of a tan. Playa Manual Antonio ranks as one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica and has been rated one of the top ten in the world. The beach is a half mile long, white sand crescent bordered by deep green mangroves and palms. But still doesn’t top the “White-Heaven Beach” on the Whitsunday’s in Australia, which, for my opinion, is the most beautiful one in the world. Finally I and Kathryn boarded the bus back to San Jose where we spent the evening with a few beers and one of Kathryn’s friends, who had just arrived in Costa Rica.
