Do any of you ever dream of beautiful expansive and tropical beaches with very few people on them?
Uvita lies on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coast. The beach there is really something to behold. There is even a natural whale’s tale formation of sand and rock that extends into the ocean, of which I’m sure I’ll do some paintings in the future. In the meantime, this is the first couple of layers of this painting, which I’ll complete soon!
While I’m talking about Uvita, I have to give a shout out to my friend from the Peace Corps, Travis Bays, founder of Bodhi Surf School, a yoga and surf camp that specializes in providing one-of-a-kind vacation experiences. Travis lives in Uvita with his wife Pilar and their daughter Maya.
If you travel down the Pacific coast further south, you’ll eventually get to Corcovado National Park, the most biodiverse region in the western hemisphere. While in the Peace Corps, I trekked through Corcovado’s jungles, rivers and wild beaches!
