Halloween, Costa Rica-style
What’s the best way to celebrate Halloween in a Costa Rican beach town? For residents of Tamarindo, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, there’s only once answer: by taking to the waves in full costume.
According to Tico Times freelancer Ellen Zoe Golden (the mermaid who won second place in the costume competition, by the way), all surfers in Tamarindo are invited to the annual event, initiated several years ago by Courtney Gaw Borquet. This year’s costumed ocean romp was organized by Tommy Whalen and Margaret Schaffner.
Would you like to submit a photo to our #TTPicOfTheDay series – the view from your home or favorite Costa Rican spot, or any other image you care to share? Please send horizontal photos at least 1100 pixels wide to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to see the sights with you.
