Did you know that some beaches on the Pacific side of Costa Rica you can’t see the sun pass over the ocean / horizon because of the direction the beach faces or there’s a darn hill in the way??? And depending on the time of the year, at some beaches sometimes you may be able to see the sun set over the horizon and other times the sunset hides behind land...all due to Earth's tilt on its axis!
Yep, you read that right...the horror! 🙈🙈🙈
Soooooo I have a new solution...a drone! When I can’t see the sunset, I just gotta get some altitude...kinda just like this sunset image! And let’s just talk about how dreamy that pink rain is from the sunset sky, casting a pastel glow over the ocean?!?! 😍🌅🌧
P.S. Did you know there is a website called SunCalc where you can check exactly where the sun is going to set given your exact location? Of course the sun is going to set in the West...but as the Earth tilts on its axis throughout the year, the exact location it sets over land or a body of water will change throughout the year (unless you're exactly on the equator!). Cool, huh?!

Rainy Season > Dry Season
Yes, I said it!
I prefer Rainy Season in Costa Rica over Dry Season...and if you love breathtaking sunsets as much as I do, then you will too!
(How about that for some rhyming... 😉😂)
So why is Rainy Season better than Dry Season in Costa Rica?
Because Rainy Season = magical sunset season in Costa Rica!
In other words, rain squalls + clouds set the stage for dramatic sunsets just like this...

For a brief stretch during rainy season in Costa Rica the afternoon rains stop and the refreshing offshore summer winds come back for a mini summer / little summer, or what's called Veranillo de San Juan (verano means "summer" in Spanish).

If you've ever travelled to Costa Rica, then you most likely know + love the phrase "Pura Vida" as much as I do. But if your high school Spanish aka Español is a tad bit rusty, I probably have had you wondering what the heck I mean when...
