Water means different things to different people: A place to splash in or on during the heat of the day; a beverage to drink when thirsty for something nonalcoholic; or, perhaps, a livelihood. For most of the time that we have been at Costa Sur, the ocean has been running very high. The red flag has been prominently displayed by the pool letting us know that there will be no kayaking, snorkeling or paddle boarding out in the ocean or even splashing in our little man made lagoon, which has pretty much disappeared under the waves.
Happily for us Costa Surians, there are other water activity options available: Water aerobics and water volleyball in the pool being two. For those who fish for a living or maybe even just to supplement their income, the pool won’t do and they set their nets in the ocean at night and pull them up in the morning to see what the sea has provided.
