Get ready for some action here in Playa Tambor Costa Rica. Tomorrow Los Delfines Golf & Country Club is once more the location of a sport event. In Costa Rica sports which you can practice in the open air are very popular, such as mountain biking, marathons, ATV tours, hiking, but also triathlon. Therefore Costa Rica also sent 1 triathlon athlete to the Olympics in the capital of England, London.
Tomorrow the International Triathlon starts here in Playa Tambor, where they will swim in the Whale Bay or Bahia Ballena which is perfect for the event because there are no high waves nor under currents. They run on the beach and enter Los Delfines Golf & Country Club where they will pass beautiful lakes and will probably appreciate Scarlet Macaws, Blue Jays, Humming Birds, Howler Monkeys and much more. Yes, it is sometimes a zoo here at Los Delfines, Playa Tambor. It is pretty big event and therefore Costa Rica national television, canal 7, will be present and will film obviously the athletes but also the natural tropical sceneries.
I will be present and enjoy the event, all the hotels and cabins in Playa Tambor and surroundings are booked because of this. We are now in the rainy season although it normally only rains sometimes at night, therefore everything is very lush but the humidity factor is pretty high making it even harder for the athletes. Because we live in this beautiful natural setting for us there is no need to go look for a place to practice sports. We live steps from the beach and can play golf, tennis, basketball, soccer or even practice triathlon and living in the very unique blue zone can it get any healthier than this?
So tomorrow at Playa Tambor, Costa Rica the event starts at 1 pm with the category for children first and at 2.30 pm the Olympic and Sport category. Athletes from Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Panama and obviously Costa Rica will participate. All participants are approved by the united federation of Triathlon. Hopefully Costa Rica can show how it needs to be done!
