Walking along the beach in Costa Rica at Playa Domenical I saw all these trees painted red, white and blue.

Blue represents optimism and opportunity. White symbolizes happiness and peace. MaryLou red white and blue reesRed expresses the warmth of the Costa Rican people and the blood spilled during their fight for freedom from Spanish sovereignty . boat dominicalLater we passed a fishing boat with the same patriotic colors. 

If my walk along the beach is any indication Costa Ricans love their country.
